Sir Thomas Bloodworth
Person Male Born 1620 Died 12/5/1682
As Lord Mayor of London 1665-6 he was sorely tested and found wanting. As the fire advanced he alone had the authority to create fire-breaks by demolishing buildings but he refused to make such an order. After a meeting during which Pepys describes him as being "like a fainting woman" he retired to bed. Not the hero of the hour.
On the Bunhill pier his name is spelt: Bludworth.
