Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
The overlays that highlight 17th century London features are approximate and derived from:
from L&M CompanionClapham, Surrey. A village of 92 houses in 1664, some 4-1/2 miles from the Standard on Cornhill, on the road to Richmond. A number of well-to-do Londoners lived or had country villas there, including Gauden, the Navy Victualler, who lived in a large house which after 1688 became Pepys's country retreat. He spent many happy months in his 'Paradisian Clapham' as Evelyn called it, and it was there that he died.
Clapham is in the upper-lefthand corner of this segment of J. CARY'S MAP OF 15 MILES ROUND LONDON 1786http://www.motco.com/map/81001/SeriesSearchPlat...
