Feb. 3. Report to the King from Treasurer Danby dated from Wallingford House on the petition of the Mayor, commonalty and citizens of London, governors of the possessions, revenues and goods of the Hospitals of Edw. VI., Christ, Bridewell and St. Thomas the Apostle : all as by the order of reference thereon from Secretary Williamson Feb. 18 last [sic]. By report from the Surveyor General of Crown Lands, I find that the place mentioned in said petition extends from the South East corner of the tenement and ground belonging to the Hospital of Bridewell now in the tenure of William Nurse near the place called Frying Pan Stairs adjoining on the East part to the houses and grounds of Dr. Benj. Whichcott in his wife's right, now in the occupation of James Braines along by the Thames side westward to the South West corner of the house and ground of the same hospital now in the tenure of John Wilson towards Wapping Dock, in length about 450 foot and in breadth about 84 foot at the East End, viz. from Wapping Street to the South East corner of the said ground (as it is now wharfed up) including 11 foot only taken in since the fire ; and about 76 foot at the West End thereof from the said street to the Thames (as it is now wharfed in there) including 2 foot only taken in since the fire : and it appears that the ground as it is now taken into the wharf since the fire contains only 1729 foot more than formerly was wharfed in, amounting to about 6 perches of ground besides the 2 stairs mentioned in said petition, one whereof is placed at the end of the street called King Edward St. and the other at Wapping Dock which are necessary to be enlarged to 12 foot in breadth or more if it shall be thought fit with causeways to the low water mark for the better landing of passengers, coals and other commodities and especially for the more free access to and from the water in case of fire, the want whereof was the main occasion of burning most of the houses consumed in the last dreadful fire there wherein above 200 houses belonging to the said poor hospital (besides many others) were then destroyed together with great quantities of pitch, tar, timber, cables, cordage, sails and other naval provisions. I find also by the said report that there is belonging to the hospital a further range of ground extending from the West end of the said Wilson's tenement westwards to the middle of the alley at a place called the New Stairs towards the Tower containing in length about 915 foot more whereon the said Stairs at Wapping Dock and the said New Stairs are placed. To the end that the wharfage alongst all the said ground (being now crooked and irregular in a great part thereof) may be inlarged and [made] more straight and convenient I advise that this Hospital may have a grant according to their petition not only of the said six perches so taken in as aforesaid but also of a perch or two more in depth of all alongst the shore next adjoining to the said Hospital ground containing about 80 pole in length in the whole : whereby they may be encouraged to enlarge and improve said wharfs, stairs and causeways for the benefit of the public as well as their own.
