Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
The overlays that highlight 17th century London features are approximate and derived from:
A large and prosperous inn that was kept by Peter Griffith, a wealthy and charitable bachelor, and executor of the will of Hugh Roberts of the Harp and Ball which is also mentioned in the Diary. 25 hearths in 1665. Source: Latham and Matthews Companion volume 11. (Griffith and Roberts are surnames that are most common in Wales, perhaps there was some family or other link between them.)
Called an Ordinary by Pepys in jan 1663
