  • Jonathan's Coffee House was a significant meeting place in London in the 17th and 18th centuries, famous as the original site of the London Stock Exchange. The coffee house was opened around 1680 by Jonathan Miles in Change (or Exchange) Alley, in the City of London. In 1696, several patrons were implicated in a plot to assassinate William III, and it was thought to be associated with the Popish Plots. In 1698, it was used by John Castaing to post the prices of stocks and commodities, the first evidence of systematic exchange of securities in London. That year, dealers expelled from the Royal Exchange for rowdiness migrated to Jonathan's (as well as to ). It was the scene of a number of critical events in the history of share trading, including the South Sea Bubble and the panic of 1745. It was destroyed by fire in 1748, and rebuilt. In 1761 a club of 150 brokers and jobbers was formed to trade stocks. The club built its own building in 1773 in , which was dubbed the New Jonathan's, but was renamed the Stock Exchange (now officially called the London Stock Exchange). The original Jonathan's served as the home of a lottery office until it was destroyed by fire in 1748. (en)
  • Jonathan's Coffee-House est la première véritable bourse des valeurs britanniques au sens où s'y échangeaient des actions de société, constituant leurs capitaux propres et non des emprunts ou des contrats de marchandises. Cette bourse, censée se tenir au Royal Exchange fonctionne en fait dans des cafés, qui sont à la mode à Londres à la fin du XVIIe siècle, au moment de la Révolution financière britannique. Le commerce des actions se concentre autour de City's Change Alley, dans deux cafés : Garraway's et Jonathan's Coffee-House. (fr)
