Brook’s Wharf

Harben explains that [a]fter the dissolution of the monasteries [the wharf] was granted to Thomas Broke [and was] described as a great messuage in the parish of St. Michael Queenhithe (Harben 111). However, prior to his ownership the wharf passed through many other hands and was known by aliases such as Bockyng Wharffe and Dockynes Wharfe; it was also referred to as Broke Wharffee and Brookers Wharf (Harben 111). Harben tells us that [t]here can be little doubt that these names commemorate the various owners, who held the wharf or wharves form time to time, as it was the common practice for these wharves to be designated by the names of their respective owners (Harben 111).
