I believe it that the term 'Black Death' refers to the 14th Century pandemic which killed half the a huge percentage of the population of Britain and elsewhere.

The term Plague is more commonly used to refer to the outbreak of bubonic plague that occurred in1665 - just prior to the Great Fire of London in 1666
