Facts about Blackwall
Blackwall is a locale in East London, located in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It includes Leamouth and the conservation area of Coldharbour. The area takes its name from a historic stretch of riverside wall built along an outside curve of the Thames. To protect the area from flooding. While mostly residential, Blackwall Yard here provides moorings for vessels.
Blackwall was a significant part of the ocean-going port called the Port of London, connected with important voyages for over 400 years. On 7 June 1576, financed by the Muscovy Company, Martin Frobisher set sail from Blackwall, seeking the northwest Passage.
History of Blackwall
Blackwall Yard became a major sea hub, and the district was a significant part of the Port of London, and involved with important voyages for over 400 years. Shipfitting and repair was taking place by 1485 and shipbuilding would take place in the area later too. In 1576, Martin Frobisher left Blackwall and landed at Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island, claiming it for England (its first overseas possession) in the name of Queen Elizabeth I. Frobisher was funded by the Muscovy Company seeking the North West Passage. In the early years of the 17th century the port was the main departure point of the English colonisation of North America and the West Indies launched by the London Company. On 20 December 1606, three ships, Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery, sailed from Blackwall, landing in Virginia on 26 April 1607 to establish the first permanent English settlement, Jamestown.
The East and West India Docks were constructed at the beginning of the 19th century.
