Neighbourhoods

London’s official political jurisdictions are parishes, wards, and liberties. Early modern texts also talk about areas that we might call neighbourhoods. They do not lend themselves to being mapped on the Agas map platform underlying The Map of Early Modern London because they do not have clear boundaries; however, they were significant to the early modern imagination and are mentioned throughout the texts we cite. These areas encompass many features of the streetscape and landscape, and often cross jurisdictional boundaries. The following list will be expanded as MoEML’s other pages make reference to neighbourhoods.
