This plan was published in William Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundations to the Present Day'. The plan's title features in cartouche at bottom left, with the heraldic arms of William Calvert, Alderman for Portsoken, at top right, scale bar at top left and compass star at bottom right. Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's plans produced for the 'Survey of the Cities of London and Westminster'.
