The Warden's house in the Mint

Warden's House

Newton became Warden of the Royal Mint in April 1696 and moved to London to take up the appointment. Presumably at first he lived in the Warden's House inside the Tower of London. (By November 1696 he had moved to a more pleasant house at 88 Jermyn Street.) The Warden's house, along with the other Mint buildings, stood in the narrow street between the inner and outer curtain walls, and is marked on a plan of 1701 as being opposite the Jewel Tower (now Martin Tower) against the north part of the outer curtain (Corres, IV, Plate III.)
