As a small boy, I was sometimes brought here by my father, a dealer in gum copal resin with an office in Stepney. Together, we would come down to Docklands and watch freighters from the Belgian Congo unloading their cargoes. Since then, I’ve witnessed many changes: Already, we can boast a range of restaurants and commercial art galleries to match any others in London. And the office spaces attract architects, designers and a host of other creative business people. I have always believed that Butlers Wharf and the surrounding areas were uniquely placed to become a focus of cultural endeavours in London. This booklet provides a fascinating overview of the area’s rich history and the many attractions now to be found here. I hope it will encourage you to explore the Victorian streets and to discover their secrets for yourself.

James’s greatest political problem was his Catholicism, which left him alienated from both parties in England. The low church Whigs had failed in their attempt to pass the Exclusion Bill to exclude James from the throne between and , and James’s supporters were the high church Anglican Tories.
In Scotland , his supporters in the Parliament of Scotland stepped up attempts to force the Covenanters to renounce their faith and accept episcopalian rule of the church by the monarch. When James inherited the English throne in , he had much support in the ‘Loyal Parliament’, which was composed mostly of Tories.
In ancient times Italy had several other names: The name Italy Gr. Italia , which seems to have been taken from vitulus, to signify a land abounding in cattle, was applied at first to a very limited territory. According to Nissen and to others, it served to designate the southernmost portion of the peninsula of Calabria; but some authorities, as Cocchia and Gentile, hold that the name was given originally to that country between the Sele and the Lao which later was called Lucania. We find the name Italy in use, however, among Greek writers of the fifth and the fourth centuries B.
Looking back at the History of England’s capital from before the Romans arrived right up to the present day. London Years Ago. Before the Romans arrived some years ago there is no evidence of London existing as any sort of thriving town or village.
From any point of view the destruction of the English monasteries by Henry VIII must be regarded as one of the great events of the sixteenth century. They were looked upon in England , at the time of Henry’s breach with Rome , as one of the great bulwarks of the papal system. The monks had been called “the great standing army of Rome. This was in ; and, some time prior to the December of that year, arrangements were already being made for a systematic visitation.
It is well to remember this, as it throws an interesting and somewhat unexpected light upon the first dissolutions: Parliament was to meet early in the following year, , and, with the twofold object of replenishing an exhausted exchequer and of anticipating opposition on the part of the religious to the proposed ecclesiastical changes, according to the royal design, the Commons were to be asked to grant Henry the possessions of at least the smaller monasteries.
It must have been felt, however, by the astute Cromwell, who is credited with the first conception of the design, that to succeed, a project such as this must be sustained by strong yet simple reasons calculated to appeal to the popular mind. Some decent pretext had to be found for presenting the proposed measure of suppression and confiscation to the nation, and it can hardly now be doubted that the device of blackening the characters of the monks and nuns was deliberately resorted to.
Victory, Peace, Fame, Concord, which had temples and a priesthood for the performance of their cult; necromancy, the evocation of the dead, as old as history and perpetuated in contemporary Spiritism ; oneiromancy, the interpretation of dreams ; philtres, potions, or charms intended to excite love ; omens or prognostics of future events; witchcraft and magic in all their ramifications; lucky and unlucky days, numbers, persons, things, actions; the evil eye, spells, incantations, ordeals, etc.
Ignorance of natural causes leads to the belief that certain striking phenomena express the will or the anger of some invisible overruling power, and the objects in which such phenomena appear are forthwith deified, as, e. Conversely, many superstitious practices are due to an exaggerated notion or a false interpretation of natural events, so that effects are sought which are beyond the efficiency of physical causes. Curiosity also with regard to things that are hidden or are still in the future plays a considerable part, e.

When Shakespeare was young, his father, John Shakespeare , was elected to several municipal offices, serving as an alderman and culminating in a term as bailiff , the chief magistrate of the town council , all of which required being a church member in good standing, and he participated in whitewashing over the Catholic images in the chapel and taking down the rood screen. Shakespeare’s birth and that of his siblings were entered into the church register, as were the births of his three children and the burials of his family members.
His brother Edmund , who followed him to London as an actor and died there, was buried in St Saviour’s in Southwark “with a forenoone knell of the great bell”, most likely paid for by the poet. As leaser of the parish tithes in Stratford, he was a lay rector of the church. He and his wife were buried in the church chancel, and a monument that included a half-figure bust of the poet was set into the north wall of the chancel. The bishop then remitted the outstanding sum to Shakespeare’s former parish “as a matter of convenience”.

One Shilling and Threepence FOREWORD With enthusiasm and patient diligence Mr Young has combed the records of the past and the memory of the “Elders” to bring to light the History of Catholic Jarrow and here presents the highlights woven into the history of our parish – great names enriched by the deeds that made them great – familiar customs traced to remote origins – the past, and only in the nick of time, snatched from the brink of oblivion. It is, alas, only with the highlights that history can be concerned, so much of deep human interest is gone beyond recall, thus for the one whose name appears here, many thousand must go unmentioned.
Here we may acknowledge the part they played, proudly recollect and, if need be, humbly remind ourselves that this is the stock from which we spring.
