London Charterhouse, 1803 (1906). The London Charterhouse is a historic complex of buildings in Smithfield, London dating back to the 14th century. It was originally a Carthusian monastery. The Tudor house had a number of notable tenants: it was a former residence of Bassano family of instrument makers, and was a residence of Edward North (c1496-1564) which was used in 1558 by Queen Elizabeth I during the preparations for her coronation. Thomas Howard, 4th Duke of Norfolk (1536-1572) renamed the property Howard House, passing it on to Thomas Howard, 1st Earl of Suffolk (1561-1626). In 1603, James I (1566-1625) held court at the house on his first entrance into London. In May 1611 the complex was acquired by Thomas Sutton (1532-1611) who endowed an almshouse and school there in his will. From Medieval London, Vol. II - Ecclesiastical by Sir Walter Besant.
