This is a plan from a rent book that belonged to the Mercers' Company, one of the most prominent of the City Livery Companies. The Mercers' were merchants who dealt primarily in textiles and amassing wealth came to own property in the City which they leased to tenants. This is a property on Budge Row, which takes its name from the budge or lamb-skin dealers who used to trade here. A note at the base of the plan states that two more plans 'of this sort' have been drawn for the 'Comp' [Mercers' Company] and Mr Slater, the tenant.
