Object history note

Hackney House, Lower Clapton, was built in 1720 by Stamp Brooksbank (1694-1756), MP for Colchester and later Saltash, and Director of the Bank of England. The house was demolished in around 1800.

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.
