Tottenham Quakers

Tottenham in the 17th century

Seventeenth century Tottenham was very different from Tottenham today. A number of rich Londoners had large country retreats here. Bruce Castle (the oldest building still standing in Tottenham) was probably built in 1568 for a visit by Queen Elizabeth. It was substantially altered in the 1680s by the Coleraine family whose arms appear on the north side.
