Object history note

Shacklewell House was the manor house of the estate of Shacklewell. It was the residence of the Heron family in the 16th century,including Giles Heron who was married to Cecily, daughter of Sir Thomas More. After Giles' execution for treason, the house passed to the Rowes, and was sold by Henry Rowe in about 1700 to the Tyssen family. The house was pulled down in the late 18th century.

This object was part of the John Edmund Gardner collection of topographical prints and drawings of London. After Gardner's death the collection passed to his son Edmund Thomas, but was sold to Edward Coates MP in 1910. The collection was sold again in 1923 after Coates' death, and was split between various institutions and private collectors. The portion connected with Hoxton, Homerton, Hackney and Bethnal Green was bought by the Hon. Arthur Villiers and donated to the Bethnal Green Museum.
