This is a fascinating legal record of the case to do with ‘certain lands’ owned in Wapping, London. The dispute was apparently between the Creditors of Sir Anthony Bateman, and the Heirs of Whichcott and Lady Ivy. The maps show ‘Part of the Wall of Wapping Marsh’ and another more detailed map both with red hand-drawn lines showing the demarcation of the area in dispute.
