Tower Liberty

Place  From 1686  To 25/6/1894

The area in and around the Tower which was free from the jurisdiction of the City of London. Initially the Liberties of the Tower were restricted to the area within its walls and the land on Tower Hill. Three territories were added by James II's charter of 1686: the Minories, the Artillery Ground and the Wellclose. The Liberties were formally abolished on 25 June 1894. OldLondonMaps gives a larger picture. British Listed Buildings gives more information about the markers, of which there are apparently 22 remaining. William Penn (of Pennsylvania fame) was born within the Liberty.
