Cuckold’s Point.

A spot on the riverside near Deptford. So called from a tradition that King John made there successful love to a labourer’s wife. http://www.bartleby.com/81/4444.html

Cuckolds Point (today Nelson Dock, the only dry dock left in London) is in the NE corner of this section of the 1802 FAIRBURN MAP OF LONDON, WESTMINSTER AND THE NEW DOCKS, showing Redriffe to the west http://www.motco.com/map/81004/SeriesSearchPlat...
