This entry concerns the area of the City of London formerly known as Coldharbour. From the 13th century to the mid-17th century Coldharbour occupied the area between Upper Thames Street and the Thames to the east of Cannon Street station. It was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. One of the estates was used by the Dukes of Exeter and briefly as a college of heralds. Coldharbour was a liberty until 1608, when James I brought it within the jurisdiction of the City of London. Cold Harbour House was a medieval mansion house on the north bank of the River Thames just upstream from London Bridge and close to the site of Cannon Street station. Coldharbour was either dismantled by the 6th Earl of Shrewsbury or destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666, although a later building with the same name, constructed on the same site, was used as the hall of the Company of Watermen and Lightermen until 1778.
