|Treveris continues in Southwark to 1532 (I think). James Nicholson begins printing in Southwark in 1526, and in 1537 moves into St Thomas Hospital and prints Miles Coverdale's Bible, the first bible printed in England in English (there was an earlier print run of the Bible printed on the continent). It was printed by Royal License. Coverdale was protected by Thomas Cromwell, and closely associated with William Tyndale. Among Coverdale's jobs was as Rector of St Magnus, across the river from the Hospital at some point, and was interred there after St Batholemew's at the Exchange was knocked down.|
More information on printers of Southwark can be found here. Typographical antiquities: an historical account of printing in England, with some memoirs of our antient printers, and a register of the books printed by them, from 1471 to 1600, with an appendix concerning printing in Scotland and Ireland. Considerably augmented by W. Herbert. for Southwark see pages 144-155
People used to say you know you are getting older when policemen look too young for the job. But an archeologist knows he she is getting old when other archaeologists start digging up your excavations and reporting the finds.
