The transcript below includes George Elliot aged 27, a ship's caulker living in Caster Street, Limehouse, East London, located approximately four miles east of Charing Cross. London’s oldest canal, the Limehouse Cut, was constructed around 1770 to link the River Lea at Bow with the river Thames, thus saving a journey around the Isle of Dogs. Limehouse underwent heavy development in the eighteenth century to provide housing for the workers in the shipbuilding and associated industries.
