Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Queenhithe Ward Club was founded in 1932.

The City of London was divided into wards for the purpose of government as early as Norman times. The wards had responsibility to keep the peace, supervise trade and oversee sanitation, and each ward has the right to elect an Alderman and Commoners to sit in the Court of Common Council. Queenhithe Ward is on the riverside bounded on the north by Bread Street and Cordwainer wards, east by Vintry Ward, west by Castle Baynard and south by the River Thames. The ward contained six City parish churches: St Michael Queenhithe, St Mary Somerset, St Mary Mounthaw, St Nicholas Cole Abbey, St Nicholas Olave and Holy Trinity the Less.
