London became the principal North Sea port, with migrants arriving from England and abroad.
The population rose from an estimated 50,000 in 1530 to about 225,000 in 1605.
In 1475, the Hanseatic League set up its main trading base (kontor) of Britain in London, since called Stalhof or Steelyard.
It existed until 1853, when the Hanseatic cities of Lübeck, Bremen and Hamburg sold the property to South Eastern Railway.
Archaeological research shows that this involved abandonment of Lundenwic and a revival of life and trade within the old Roman walls.
London then grew slowly until about 950, after which activity increased dramatically.Upon the re-opening of the Netherlands to English shipping in January 1565, there ensued a strong outburst of commercial activity.Mercantilism grew, and monopoly trading companies such as the East India Company were established, with trade expanding to the New World.It was an area of political and geographical control imposed by the Viking incursions which was formally agreed by the Danish warlord, Guthrum and the West Saxon king Alfred the Great in 886.The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle recorded that Alfred "refounded" London in 886.But the reach of English maritime enterprise hardly extended beyond the seas of north-west Europe.
