Illustration from The History Scrap Book published circa 1889 The caption would seem to be erroneous as the house was named after the palace built in Henry's reign, but not built until 1579 during Elizabeth I reign.
Info from wiki: Nonsuch House was a four-storey house on London Bridge, completed in 1579. It is the earliest documented prefabricated building. Originally constructed in the Netherlands, it was taken apart and shipped to London in pieces in 1578, where it was reassembled, with each timber being marked so that it could be reconstructed correctly. It was assembled in the manner later typical of an American barn or modern prefab housing. The name Nonsuch may have referred to Henry VIII's now vanished Nonsuch Palace outside London; it meant there was "none such" anywhere else, that it was an unequalled paragon of its kind.
All houses on London Bridge were pulled down in 1757
