Excerpt from The German Exodus to England in 1709: Massen-Auswanderung Der Pfalzer; Prepared at the Request of the Pennsylvania-German Society Blackheath is also noted for being the scene of some of the most im portant occurrences in the English history. The peasant revolt under Wat Tyler originated there. Jack Cade, the leader of the insurrection of 1450, when he marched on London with upwards of adherents, encamped on this historic spot. The revolutionary Cornishmen under Lord Audley in 1497 also made it their stopping place. The Danes, at the time of their invasion of Britain, in 1011, encamped here. T 0 this renowned place flocked all London to welcome Henry V. Upon his return to England after winning the glorious field of Agincourt Here also, Charles II, on his way from Dover met the army of the Restoration.
