Quays on the Thames

roseList documents mentioning Quays on the Thames
The quays or keys along the Thames changed names according to their owners.1 As Stow comments, These wharffes and keyes commonly beare the names of their owners, and are therefore changeable (Stow). The names for the quays on the Agas map are not entirely consistent with the names given in Stow’s description of Tower Street Ward. The Map of Early Modern London will conduct more research before assigning coordinates and names to the quays in this map section.
