London Markets
   These markets have not all been in existence at the same period, nor for the same purposes, and some are merely the successors of the older ones.
   In addition to these permanent markets, fairs were held at specified times in specified places, as Bartholomew Fair, etc.
   There is an interesting account of the amounts payable out of the annual rents of the markets in 1691-2 in H. MSS. Com. 13th Rep. V. 304-5.
