Milk Street Plaque

This plaque commemorates More's birthplace. Milk Street was a prosperous residential area off the busy commercial district of the city. Thomas More's father, Sir John More, lived here much of his life. The exact location of the More home is unknown. Thomas was born to John and Agnes on February 7, 1477, the second of six children.
