Cox's Quay
   On the south side of Lower Thames Street at No. 6 (P.O. Directory). In Billinesgate Ward, adjoining Fresh Wharf on the west.
   Former name : "Cocks Key." Act of Parliament 1539, when it was appointed a general place for lading and discharging goods (Strype, ed. 1720, I. ii. 49 ; and in Leake, 1666).
   It seems to be placed further west in some of the maps.
   It is interesting to note that in temp. Henry VI. "Drynkwater Wharf" is described as alias "Cokkeswharf," but it seems to be too far west to be identified with the present "Cox's Quay."
   Demised by Richard Coke to Anne Cooke, widow, temp. Q. Elizabeth (Proc. in Chancery, II. 107).
   Named after an owner.
