Hi all,

I am trying to find out if there are any old London maps online available to look at? In particular I want to find out where Lion Street and Isabella Street were in Southwark.

Any ideas of any good sites that I can check out would be very much appreciated. :)

Many thanks in advance.
Christine

'Mike writes: 'I have just published a book on my great great great great grandfather Richard Hall, who lived in Red Lion Street in Southwark in the 18th Century and who for a while was Treasurer at Horsleydown school. He was a devout Baptist, a friend of Dr Gill at the Carter Lane Meeting House, and a hosier (like his father before him). I am fortunate to have all his diaries, journals, and jottings – even his shopping lists, accounts and reading lists! These have enabled me to write the story of his life as he progressed from making and selling silk stockings from his home in Red Lion Street, to opening a shop across the river at One London Bridge, to becoming a farmer in the Cotswolds.'

I have London rellies and have looked at those websites endless times. Very good they are. My earliest recorded London born ancestor was Elizabeth Susan Pequin born 1707.
