A map of Pocahontas in London, 1616-17

In 1616, the lady we know as Pocahontas visited London. She died around the 20th of March, 1617, at Gravesend, near London. She was on her way home.

The story of her visit is partly told by the places she went and the people she met.

I have put together a map of some of these. In a number of cases I had to take a guess. I welcome comments, corrections, additions, and any other useful bits.

I hope you’ll enjoy this map.

I am posting it here on the website but I may update it from time to time. To receive updates, please make sure I have your email address. If you subscribed via WordPress I probably don’t have an email address for you. Feel free to check. Just email me at jill @londonheritagehotspots.com (no spaces) and I will have a look.

How to use a Google map

I made this video to help you navigate around the map if you aren’t used to the Google maps setup.

My introduction is cut off at the start but all you are missing is me saying the first part of, “Hi, I’m Jill Browne from London Heritage Hotspots.com.”

The video you see below is not the actual map! It’s just a video showing how to use Google maps.
