The London Companies
The following maps of the London Companies by the cartographer Thomas Raven were commissioned in 1622 by Sir Thomas Phillips. They form part of the evidence which Phillips submitted to King Charles I in support of his charge against the London Companies that they were not fulfilling their legal obligations to implement the Plantation of Londonderry.
