" A view of the Palatine camp found in Whitechapel Fields" : the camp was established by about 800 natives of the Palatinate and Bohemia who were tricked into setting out for a new life in America by an adventurer named Stumple. Once they shipped for London Stumple abandoned them and they arrived at the Port of London in great destitution. The Tower of London sent 100 tents and funds were raised to send them to Carolina the following year. Stepney is now in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
