The Land of Promise was an estate, consisting of marsh, with reed beds and osier hope along the foreland, belonged to Simon Lemon, a haberdasher of St Martin's-in-the-Fields. A windmill was built at the north end, beside Drunken Dock, about 1722, together with a house and granaries. It is now part of Tower Hamlets and nothing remains of anything Thomas would recognise.
