Title at top left, with Royal Arms above. Two tables of lists to the right of the plan give details on the boundaries and towers.

On Sunday, 29 June 1595, a large riot occurred on Tower Hill and very nearly turned into a full rebellion. In dispersing the rioters, the Lord Mayor of London had claimed jurisdiction over the area of Tower Hill, while Sir Michael Blount, Lieutenant of the Tower, had claimed that Tower Hill was part of the Liberty of the Tower of London and therefore under his jurisdiction. Tower guards refused to assist the Lord Mayor in putting down the riot, and even attacked the Mayor and his entourage. In order to prevent future jurisdictional uncertainties and to ensure appropriate response to disturbances, the Privy Council ordered an investigation and determination of the exact boundary between the City of London and the Liberty of the Tower of London in 1596. Sir John Peyton, Constable of the Tower in 1597, commissioned William Hayward and John Gascoyne (or Gascoigne) to conduct a thorough survey of the Tower and its environs and to determine where the boundary between Tower and City lay. The drawing was part of that official survey.

Condition : Very good. From "Some Account of London by Thomas Pennant. Fourth edition.
