Cripplegate ward with its division into parishes according to a new survey
Engraver: Cole, Benjamin
This plan was published in William Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundation to the Present Time'. The plan's title features in cartouche at bottom right, with the heraldic arms of dedicatee John Blanchford, Alderman of Cripplegate ward, at bottom left. The compass star appears at middle left, with a view of St. Luke's hospital at the top of the plate.
Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's plans, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 1736 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches'.
