The Pursgloves of Shoreditch - [SHRD]

The original name of Soersditch probably referred to a drain into the River Thames, possibly to drain the boggy area at the course of the River Walbrook.  In the 12th Century, Shoreditch parish was situated around the church of St Leonards.
The first purpose built theatre in England was built here in 1576 by James Burbage.

In the 17th century a key industry was textiles and silk weaving, by the 18th century the focus was on furniture making.
