A fascinating plan of 17th century Chelsea extending from Knightsbridge to Fulham at a time when much of it was still open countryside divided into aristocratic estates. Chelsea Physic Garden is shown as "Apothecarys Garden". Chelsea Old Church (at the bottom of "Church Lane" (now Old Church Street) is shown, along with Worlds End, the Kings Road and the Earl of Ranelagh's House and Gardens. The short-lived Chelsea College is shown on a site now occupied by the Royal Hospital (College Court is named on the map in the approximate site of the eponymous courtyard within today's Royal Hospital). The original field pattern is shown, along with the size of each (A - acres; R - roods; P - poles: 40 poles = 1 rood. 4 roods = 1 acre)
