Notes

(Any abbreviated sources are listed in full below the notes.)

1Father of Thomas de Haverell sheriff 1203-04 (Beaven I.365).

2Probably the father of Peter Nevelun sheriff 1209-10 (Stow/K II.51 n. 15); perhaps instead the sheriff 1209-10 himself in an earlier term (Reynolds p. 356).

3Possibly father of Roger le Duc sheriff 1225-27: see Reynolds pp. 355 and 357. The 1225-27 sheriff became mayor 1227-31 (see Beaven I.371).

4For Robert fitz-Bartholomew, see Beaven I.364-65; also Stow/K II.150 n.14 and Mayors and Sheriffs p. 2 give fitz-Bartholomew as the alternative surname for 1198-99 sheriff Richard Blunt, and Reynolds p. 356 lists these 1196-97 and 1198-99 sheriffs as brothers.

5Or le Bel: Stow/K II.150 n. 12, and Mayors and Sheriffs p. 2.

6Brother of Ernulf fitz-Alulf sheriff 1198-99 (Beaven I.365). Reynolds pp. 356-57 suggests he may be the father of Constantine 'juvenis' (or fitz-Alulf) sheriff 1212-13.

7For Richard fitz-Bartholomew, see Stow/K II.150 n. 14, and Mayors and Sheriffs p. 2; Beaven I.364-65 gives fitz-Bartholomew as the alternative surname for 1196-97 sheriff Robert Blund, and Reynolds p. 356 lists these 1196-97 and 1198-99 sheriffs as brothers.

8Brother of Constantine fitz-Alulf sheriff 1197-98 (Beaven I.365).

9Brother of Martin fitz-Alice sheriff 1213-14 (Reynolds p. 356)?

10Son of William de Haverell sheriff 1190-91 (Beaven I.365).

11Or John Heliland: see Stow/K II.151 n. 8, and Mayors and Sheriffs p. 3.

12Or Edmund de la Hale: see Stow/K II.151 n. 9, and Mayors and Sheriffs p. 3.

13Beaven I.337 n. identifies as a Mercer the mayor 1215 and later (listed in this database for 1214-15, 1217-22), who is the same individual as the 1206-07 sheriff Serlo le Mercer (see Reynolds p. 356).

14Reynolds pp. 356-57 identifies the 1207-08 sheriff William Hardel and the 1215-16 mayor as the same individual, and suggests that this is the father of Ralph Hardel mayor 1254-55.

15Williams p. 54 speaks of the 1215-16 mayor William Hardel, who is the same individual as the 1207-08 sheriff, in terms of a Vintner family dynasty; A Chronicle p. 8 calls the 1215-16 mayor a Draper.

16Reynolds pp. 356-57 names him Peter le Duc and suggests that his father was a sheriff [Roger le Duc sheriff 1192-93?].

17Or Thomas alderman (or Thomas fitz-Nigel): Reynolds pp. 356-57, Hughes p. 200 (Thomas Aldermannus); or Thomas fitz-Neal: Mayors and Sheriffs p. 3.

18Or William Wite: see Stow/K II.151 n. 16, and Mayors and Sheriffs p. 3. Same as William Blund sheriff 1216-17?

19Probably son of Peter Nevelun sheriff 1191-92 (Stow/K II.51 n. 15); perhaps instead the sheriff 1191-92 in another term (Reynolds p. 356). Father of Andrew Nevelun sheriff 1215-16 (Beaven I.365), or possibly his brother (Reynolds p. 356).

20See Beaven II.227; Reynolds pp. 356-57 suggests he may be the son of Constantine fitz-Alulf sheriff 1197-98.

21Same as Ralph Eiland, sheriff 1217-18 (Mayors and Sheriffs p. 188; Reynolds p. 356.

22Brother of William fitz-Alice sheriff 1200-01 (see Reynolds p. 356)?

23Stow/K II.152 has no 'de' for the 1214-15 sheriff or for the 1216-17 mayor, but presumably they are the same individual, who as mayor is de Basing in Beaven I.366.

24Also called Andrew fitz-Peter (Beaven I.365); son of Peter Nevelun sheriff 1209-10 (Beaven I.365), or possibly his brother (Reynolds p. 356).

25Same individual as William Blund sheriff 1209-10?

26Only 'Benedict' in Beaven I.366, but 'Benet Senturer' in Stow/K II.152 and in Hughes p. 199 (handprinted annotation), and 'Benedict le Seynter' in Mayors and Sheriffs p. 4.

27Goldsmith: A Chronicle p. 9.

28Same as Ralph Helyland sheriff 1212-13 (Mayors and Sheriffs [Additions] p. 188; Reynolds p. 356).

29Or Josce Ponderator: Hughes p. 200, and see also Stow/K II.152 n. 17; Joce le Pesur: Mayors and Sheriffs p. 4.

30Or John Vitalis (as sheriff 1219-20): Hughes p. 200; and see also Stow/K II.153 n. 1.

31Or Josce filius Willelmi: Hughes p. 200; and see also Stow/K II.153 n. 2.

32Andrew Bukerel's traditional identification as a Pepperer (see Beaven I.371) has been denied by Nightingale p. 47.

33Beaven I.371 identifies the 1225-27 sheriff Le Duc and the 1227-31 mayor as the same individual. Son of Roger le Duc sheriff 1192-93? (Reynolds pp. 355 and 357).

34Or Walter de Winchester: Mayors and Sheriffs p. 6; and see also Stow/K II.154.

35Beaven I.372 identifies the 1232-33 and 1235-36 sheriff Gerard Bat and the 1239-40 mayor as the same individual; and Fabyan p. 331 n. 4 suggests that the mayor may have been a Vintner.

36Or Henry de Edelmeton: Stow/K II.154 n. 6, and Mayors and Sheriffs p. 6.

37Draper?: see Williams p. 61.

38Pepperer: Beaven I.372, Williams pp. 68 and 325; Vintner: Nightingale pp. 126 and 620 (index). Nightingale p. 47 states there is no evidence for the traditional association of the Gisors family with the Pepperers. She associates the family with the wine trade.

39Beaven I.372 identifies the 1240-41 sheriff Michael Tovi and the 1244-45 and 1247-49 mayor as the same individual; Williams p. 206 calls the mayor of 1244-45 a Goldsmith.

40Possibly the son of John Viel sheriff 1218-20? Recorded in Stow/K II.155 n. 7 as 'John son of John Viel,' and in Mayors and Sheriffs p. 9 as 'John Fitz-John Vyel' and ibid p. 189 as 'John Viel the Younger.'

41Goldsmith: Stow/K II.155 n. 10.

42Goldsmith: Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 10, 189.

43Or, as sheriff 1243-44, Adam de Giseburne: Stow/K II.155 n. 12, Mayors and Sheriffs p. 10.

44Draper: Williams p. 323.

45Stow/K II.155 n. 16: Michael Tovi was elected mayor (and Beaven I.372 lists him as mayor 1244-46, although only 1244-45 at I.374 n. 3) but the king refused to admit him and John Gisors was sworn in his place on 12 January 1246 [11 January, Mayors and Sheriffs p. 16]; Nicholas Bat was chosen sheriff but rejected [14 December, Mayors and Sheriffs p. 12], and was succeeded first by John Gisors and then by Robert de Cornhill. See Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 12-13.

46Elected 22 January 1246: Mayors and Sheriffs p. 13.

47Goldsmith: Mayors and Sheriffs p. 12.

48According to Mayors and Sheriffs p. 15, the city was briefly put by the king into the hands of William de Haverille and Edward de Westminster, 23 August to 6 September 1248.

49Draper? see Williams p. 61.

50In this year, 18-24 May 1250, the city was in the king's hands: see Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 17-18.

51Possibly the son of William Hardel, sheriff 1207-08 and mayor 1215-16 (see Reynolds pp. 356-57).

52Draper: Beaven I.372; Vintner: Williams p. 209.

53Draper: Williams p. 61. Beaven I.372 identifies the 1250-51 sheriff William fitz-Richard and the 1257-58 and 1259-61 mayor, and the 1265-66 warden, as the same individual. See also Annales Londonienses p. 45. 'Le Prestre' (the priest) in Mayors and Sheriffs p. 19.

54Tailor?: Beaven I.374; Skinner: Williams p. 63.

55Ralph Hardel, according to Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 22-23, did not immediately become mayor, because the city was taken into the king's hands (under John Gisors) until 19 November. Sheriffs William Eswy and Robert de Linton, temporarily out of office also with Hardel (Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 22-23), were removed in February 1255 for neglect involving the gaols and were replaced by Henry de Walemunt and Stephen de Oystergate: see Stow/K II.156 n. 10, and Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 23-24.

56Draper: A Chronicle p. 18.

57Fishmonger: Williams pp. 220 and 228.

58The city was briefly in the king's hands in November: see Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 24-25.

59'Drapparius': Stow/K II.156 n. 15; Mayors and Sheriffs p. 25.

60For the details of removals and replacements, and one death, during 1257-58, see Stow/K II.157 n. 1. An appointed warden served between mayors Ralph Hardel and William fitz-Richard. Beaven II.xxxix, however, gives sheriff Robert de Cateloigne's death as in December 1257, and Mayors and Sheriffs p. 31 gives 14 December, while Stow/K gives 19 October 1257 as the date upon which Matthew Bukerel succeeded Cateloigne. Beaven I.373 lists Thomas fitz-Thomas as sheriff only in 1258. See also Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 33-39.

61Father of John Adrien sheriff 1277-78 (Beaven I.236 and 405-06).

62Draper: Beaven I.373. Vintner: Stow/K II.158 (when mayor in 1270-71).

63Draper: Williams p. 216.

64Pepperer: Williams pp. 220 and 244; and see also Nightingale p. 77 (though she has Grapefige as sheriff in 1252).

65'Probably the son of (though possibly identical with) the...Mayor in 1244-5 and in 1249' (Beaven I.374 n. 3; on I.372 he has Tovi as mayor not just in 1249 but in 1247-49, as accepted in this database). Williams p. 220 identifies two individuals named Michael Tovi: the mayor in the 1240s and his son, a Goldsmith, a popular leader at this time.

66Goldsmith: see Williams p. 206 (the mayor 1244-45, 1247-49) and 220 (the mayor's son).

67Fishmonger: Williams p. 63.

68Same as Richard Pickard sheriff 1253-54?

69Pepperer: Nightingale p. 77.

70Mercer: Williams pp. 58 and 332. Listed among the Merchant Taylors by Beaven I.345 but not so identified (I.374) in his chronological listing of aldermen.

71Spicer: Nightingale pp. 76-77.

72Goldsmith: Beaven I.374; but Nightingale associates the Rokesle family in general with the trade of Roper, and on Gregory de Rokesle see her p. 89.

73Beaven I.374 lists Gregory de Rokesle and Simon de Hadestok as sheriffs in 1265, not specifying whether in the 1264-65 or the 1265-66 sheriffs' year. This would be a second time for Rokesle as sheriff (see 1263-64). Mayors and Sheriffs p. 81 places them under 1265-66 and states that they were not admitted; an explanatory note is provided. John Adrien and Walter Hervi became sheriffs, with Hugh fitz-Otho as warden; see Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 81-84. Stow/K II.157 provides the 28 November date given here for Adrien and Hervi.

74Sheriff and/or Warden.

75From 28 Nov. 1265 according to Stow/K II.157 and Hughes p. 201; on 7 December 1265 according to Mayors and Sheriffs p. 84.

76Stow/K II.157 n. 10 states fitz-Richard was sheriff 6 May to 11 November 1266; Hughes p. 201 also lists him as sheriff; Beaven I.372 lists him as warden in 1266. Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 89-90 places fitz-Richard's election--as both warden and sheriff--and Guildhall oath-taking on Ascension Day 1266/ the Feast of 'Saint John Port Latin' [6 May] and a St. Paul's presentation to the Exchequer barons on 7 May (pp. 90-91).

77Beaven I.374 lists as bailiff (i.e., sheriff) 1265-66 (not just in 1265).

78Clerk: Mayors and Sheriffs p. 84.

79Stow/K II.158 n. 1 (following Mayors and Sheriffs p. 93) gives the 11 November 1266 date for the start of John Adrien's and Lucas de Batencourt's 1266-67 terms (the same date given for the end of William fitz-Richard's in this database, under 1265-66); Hughes p. 201 gives 12 November for Adrien and Batencourt. See n. to William fitz-Richard sheriff and/or warden 1265-66. Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 95-96 states that Robert de Lintone and Roger Marshal were elected as sheriffs by the people after Easter [17 April] 1267, and Richard de Culeworth by the Earl of Gloucester, and that (p. 97) Adrien and Batencourt were restored c. 18 June.

80Is this the same individual who was sheriff 1274-75? (Stow/K II.158 and 159 uses different spellings, as reproduced in this database, in 1266-68 and in 1274-75.)

81The various 1267-68 replacements of sheriffs and the warden, including dates, are noted in Stow/K II.158 nn. 3 and 4 and, for the sheriffs only, in Hughes p. 201; but Stow/K's (and also Hughes's) 7 April is 2 April in Mayors and Sheriffs p. 106.

82Replacements of sheriffs and the warden in 1268-69 are listed in Stow/K II.158 nn. 5 and 6, which specify 3 May for the sheriffs' change date; Mayors and Sheriffs p. 114 (and see also Mayors and Sheriffs [Additions] p. 191) has 4-6 May for Robert de Cornhill and Thomas de Basinge. Hughes p. 201 includes Hugh fitz-Otho in his list of sheriffs (from 17 February 1269) and has all four of Walter Hervi, William de Durham, Thomas de Basinge, and Robert de Cornhill as 'custodes' from 17 February 1269.

83Woolman: Beaven I.374; Ekwall p. 168 #83 suggests perhaps also a Draper.

84Replacements of sheriffs and the warden, effective 6 July (the date also used by Hughes p. 201), are listed in Stow/K II.158 n. 7; but see also Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 120 and 129-30 (new mayor and sheriffs chosen at the beginning of June; mayor presented to king and admitted 16 July, sworn before king 18 July; sheriffs presented and admitted at Exchequer 18 July). Beaven on I.235 lists Walter le Poter as sheriff 1270-71, but on I.375 as sheriff only in 1270.

85Cordwainer: French Chronicle p. 236.

86Both Cosyn and his fellow sheriff de Meldeburne were removed for taking bribes: Stow/K II.159 n. 3, Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 167-68.

87Elected 1 December 1273: Mayors and Sheriffs p. 168. (November: Hughes p. 201.) See Cosyn and de Meldeburne.

88Both de Meldeburne and his fellow sheriff Cosyn were removed for taking bribes: Stow/K II.159 n. 3, Mayors and Sheriffs pp. 167-68.

89Is this the same individual who was sheriff 1266-68? (Stow/K II.158 and 159 uses different spellings, as reproduced in this database, in 1266-68 and in 1274-75.)

90See also Henry Frowike, warden 1272-73.

91Hughes p. 201 notes that he 'apparently died in office'; but Beaven I.375 lists his death as in 1278.

92Son of John Adrien sheriff 1257-58 (in 1258 only), 1258-59, 1265-66 (in 1265 only), 1266-68, mayor 1269-70 (in 1270 only), 1270-71. See Beaven I.236, 373, and 405-06.

93His father was an alderman and Draper: see Beaven I.373 and 405-06; see, e.g., LBA (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/001) fos. 6r, 7r, 29v, and 108r.

94According to LBA (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/001), fo. 101v, he was briefly deposed for a trespass (at Easter according to Annales Londonienses p. 89) but restored as sheriff the Saturday before St. John Baptist: i.e., on 22 June 1280 (but on the eve of St. John Baptist, i.e., 23 June, Annales Londonienses p. 89).

95Same as Walter le Blunt sheriff 1285-86?

96Removed from office (after 25 July: Annales Londonienses p. 92) because implicated in a murder: see French Chronicle p. 240 nn. 6 and 8, and Stow/K I.254-55; also A Chronicle p. 31 (Goodcheape imprisoned in the Tower) and Annales Londonienses pp. 92-93.

97Beaven I.238 refers to a Stephen de Cornhulle as sheriff in 1294-95, dying c. 1295 (will enrolled March 1295). 1294-95 would seem to be a misprint for 1284-85 (other sheriffs are listed for 1294-95 in Stow/K and by Hughes p. 201; and Beaven II.xxxix does not include Cornhulle in his list of sheriffs who died in office); but I have not here emended the Stow/K spelling. Beaven's index gives the surname as de Cornhill.

98Corder?: see Ekwall p. 164 # 33.

99Same as Walter le Blund sheriff 1282-83?

100Hughes states p. 201 that he was appointed 3 October.

101Stockfishmonger: Annales Londonienses p. 95.

102Blader: Ekwall p. 183 # 25. 'Wadeblad' in Annales Londonienses p. 95 (cited by Ekwall).

103Thomas Gros: Hughes p. 201.

104Goldsmith: Beaven I.225, 377; but Nightingale p. 95 identifies him as a Pepperer.

105Pepperer (Beaven I.338), Goldsmith (Beaven I.189); neither in Beaven's chronological listing I.377; Pepperer, Mercer, or Goldsmith: Ekwall p. 147; and see Nightingale pp. 93, 109-10, 121 (William de Bethune, Mercer).

106Blader or Pepperer: Beaven I.197 (Blader), 338 (Pepperer), 377 (Blader or Pepperer[?]); Nightingale p. 95 identifies him as a Pepperer.

107Also known as Salomon de Laufare (Beaven II.160); see LBA (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 102r, LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 232r, and also Stow/K II.160 n. 9 (including a suggested association with a Salomon de Lanvare, Cutler; see Stow/K II.330 n. to I.262 line 18).

108Beaven omits the company designation in his chronological list of aldermen (I.377) but places le Coteler in his list of Cutler aldermen (I.351).

109Bureller: LBA (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/001) fo. 102r, Fulk de St. Edmond, 'buriler,' elected sheriff 1289. Bureller = maker of burel (coarse woollen cloth; see OED s.v. Burel, 1, and also Calendar LBB, p. 20 n. 1).

110Corder: Williams pp. 157-58; Roper: Nightingale p. 88; perhaps Corder: Ekwall p. 164 # 35.

111Hughes p. 201 lists both Henry le Bole and Elias Russell as appointed sheriff 27 May 1293 by the Chancellor of the Exchequer; but LBC (LOMA MS: COL/AD/01/003) fo. 4v records their election in September 1392. Both Stow/K II.160 and Beaven I.377 also list both as sheriffs 1292-93.

112Goldsmith: LBA (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/001) fo. 102r.

113Son of Robert de Rokesle sheriff 1284-85 (see Ekwall p. 167 # 68).

114Perhaps a timber merchant: Ekwall p. 198 #53.

115Draper: Beaven II.227 (in the Addenda and Corrigenda for I.378).

116Skinner: Ekwall p. 170 # 14.

117He apparently died in 1298: see Hughes p. 201 and Wills I.134-35. If so, it was presumably late in 1298, as he is not included in Beaven's list (II.xxxix) of sheriffs who died in office.

118Pepperer: Ekwall p. 176 # 6.

119Fishmonger: Mayors and Sheriffs (Additions) p. 220; see also Annales Paulini p. 304. (EMCR's index provides two separate lines for this name, as though possibly concerning two individuals, one line specifying Fishmonger and the other specifying sheriff; Ekwall p. 149 # 35 uses EMCR.)

120Corder: Ekwall p. 164 # 38.

121Skinner: LBA (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/001) fo. 101r and LBC (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/003) fo. 62v.

122Beaven II.227 notes that Lincoln is called a Vintner in the Liber de Antiquis Legibus; see Mayors and Sheriffs p. 222.

123Roper: see Nightingale p. 120; Woolman: see Ekwall p. 165 # 45.

124A Reginald de Thunderle, wealthy 'immigrant draper,' is mentioned by Williams p. 113 but without further identification; see also Ekwall p. 167 # 67.

125Liber Custumarum p. 73 names a 'Galfridus de Conductu, taverner' (1295-96), and Williams p. 125 writes about a major Vintner of this name; in neither case, however, is a term as sheriff noted.

126William de Basinge: Calendar LBC, index; W. Basing in Stow/K II.162.

127Woolstapler: Mayors and Sheriffs (Additions) p. 213; see also Williams p. 338 (Woolmonger).

128Draper: Mayors and Sheriffs (Additions) p. 213, Ekwall p. 168 # 81.

129Beaven II.227 corrects his I.381 listing of this name as de Palmer.

130Skinner: Beaven I.381. Blader: Mayors and Sheriffs (Additions) p. 213.

131Son of Fulk de St. Edmond (Annales Londonienses p. 158 [the 1289-90 sheriff?]).

132Bureller: Mayors and Sheriffs (Additions) p. 213. Bureller = maker of burel (coarse woollen cloth; see OED s.v. Burel, 1, and also Calendar LBB, p. 20 n. 1).

133See LBD (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/004) fo. 2v for Cambridge's name, company, and 3 August date of appointment; his name is also given in Stow/K II.162 n. 4.

135Draper: A Chronicle p. 43; Woolmonger: Mayors and Sheriffs (Additions) p. 214.

136Draper and Hosier: Ekwall p. 179 # 45.

137Bureller: Mayors and Sheriffs (Additions) p. 213. Bureller = maker of burel (coarse woollen cloth; see OED s.v. Burel, 1, and also Calendar LBB, p. 20 n. 1).

138LBD (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/004) fo. 3r; Beaven II.xxxix says 28 December.

139Elected Wednesday, 3 January 1313, to Westminster 20 January (LBD [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/004] fo. 3r).

140An Adam Lutkin is footnoted in EMCR p. 63 n. 1 as mentioned in the Letter Books as a Blader or Cornmonger, but there is no Adam Lutkin in the indexes to Calendar LBA, Calendar LBB, and Calendar LBC and the indexed Adam Lutkin in Calendar LBD and Calendar LBE is not identified by company/occupation.

141Goldsmith: LBD (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/004) fo. 3v.

142Fishmonger: Beaven I.380. Stow/K II.163-64 lists him as a Pepperer when he is mayor in 1319-20 (see also Fabyan p. 424 n. 1), 1321-22 to 1326-27 (in 1326 only), 1327-28 (see also Fabyan p. 439 n. 2); but Nightingale (p. 614, Index) calls him a Fishmonger, and see also Ekwall p. 332 # 1 and Annales Londonienses p. 232.

143Vintner: LBD (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/004) fo. 4r.

144Pepperer: Nightingale p. 137.

145Pepperer: LBD (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/004) fo. 5r (William de Fourneys); Stow/K II.163 lists W. Furneis and no company identification.

146John Priour Senior: LBD (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/004) fo. 5r.

147Mercer: Ekwall p. 275 # 90. A John de Dallynges is also listed among other Mercers c. 1328 in LBE (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/005) fo. 190r. Beaven I.266 lists a John de Dallyng, Mercer, as a representative of London in Parliament 1340 (and, I.286, as dying in 1349: see Wills I.618): possibly a son of this 1318-19 sheriff (see Ekwall).

148Stow/K II.164 calls the 1332-33 mayor John de Prestone a Draper (as also does Fabyan p. 442 n. 2), and LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 232v, a Girdler. Beaven I.357 provides a lengthy footnote pointing out that there were two John de Prestones contemporary with one another, one a Corder and one a Girdler, and argues convincingly for the 1332-33 mayor [and the 1319-20 sheriff] as the Corder. See also Nightingale pp. 186 and 205 (Roper).

149William Prodhomme, Fishmonger: LBD (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/004) fo. 6r; Stow/K II.153 lists W. Produn. A William Prodomme is also listed among other Fishmongers c. 1328 in LBE (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/005) fo. 190r; and see also Ekwall p. 332 # 2.

150Woolmonger: Beaven I.382. Fishmonger: Stow/K I.209 (probably confusing this Richard de Hakeneie with an earlier Fishmonger one, for whom see Ekwall p. 148 # 22).

151Fishmonger: Mayors and Sheriffs (Additions) p. 210; French Chronicle p. 256; Annales Paulini p. 304. Both a Robert de Ely and a Roger de Ely are listed among other Fishmongers c. 1328 in LBE (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/005) fo. 190r, but no Richard.

152According to LBD (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/004) fo. 6v, John de Caustone was originally elected but did not take up the election, and on 29 September Alan Gille was elected and sworn in his place, and admitted at Westminster on Monday, 1 October. But on 29 October Caustone, who had been stripped of the freedom of the City and of his aldermanship, asked to be reinstated, and replaced Gille; Caustone was elected and sworn 29 October at the Guildhall, and admitted 30 October at Westminster. (Beaven, II.xxxii, mentions Gille and his election situation.)

153An Alan Gille is listed among other Bladers c. 1328 in LBE (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/005) fo. 90v; see also Ekwall p. 329 # 27, although he says nothing about his listed Alan Gille (Blader/Cornmonger) as having been sheriff.

154Fishmonger: Mayors and Sheriffs (Additions) p. 210; Stockfishmonger: Ekwall p. 212 # 16.

155Wool exporter: Ekwall p. 313 # 102.

156Mayor's choice: CPMR 1 (1323-64) p. 69.

157Mayor 1345-46, after sheriff 1329-30; listed as Richard Leget, as mayor, in Stow/K II.165.

158A Thomas de Horewold is listed as a Grocer (i.e., before 1372, a Pepperer), with one other, c. 1328 in LBE (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/005) fo. 190r. See also Nightingale pp. 176, 197, and 161 n. 2.

159Cornmonger: Ekwall p. 270 # 33. (A John Husebonde is listed among other Bladers c. 1328 in LBE [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/005] fo. 190v.)

160Skinner: LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 232v.

161Fishmonger?: see Beaven I.266 and 286. A William Haunsard is also listed among other Fishmongers c. 1328 in LBE (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/005) fo. 190r; and see Ekwall p. 344 # 9.

162Stow/K II.165 lists John Clarke but footnotes name alternatives as John le Clerk of North halle and John de Northalle.

163Butcher: Ekwall p. 327 # 169.

164Stow/K II.165 has Bladesmith, but corrects this to Blader on II.385, and has Blader on I.245 and 249. See Stow/K's nn. at II.325 and 385.

165Perhaps a Draper. A Hugh le Marberer, Draper, in 1337 along with other Londoners lent a very large sum of money to the city for presents to royalty, etc.; see LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 4v.

166Mayor's choice: CPMR 1 (1323-64) p. 129.

167Stockfishmonger: see Beaven I.286 and 266.

168Corder (?Pepperer): Beaven I.386; for Pepperer see also French Chronicle p. 289. Nightingale (spelling his name Rokesley) states p. 89 that he remained a Roper, although several other Ropers joined with the Pepperers in the 1340s.

169Stockfishmonger: Beaven I.386, Stow/K II.167 (when mayor 1358-59), LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 233r (when mayor 1348-49), Wills II. 117-18 (when mayor 1358-59). Fishmonger: Stow/K II.166 (when mayor 1348-49). Pepperer: LBF fo. 233r (when mayor 1358-59), Fabyan p. 460 n. 2 (when mayor 1348-49) and p. 468 n. 2 (Grocer [i.e., Pepperer, before 1372] when mayor 1358-59). Nightingale p. 221 suggests a possible association with the Grocers/Pepperers.

170A well-off Edmund de Hemenhale, Mercer, died in 1348 (Wills I.608).

171William de Worcestre, LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 233r; W. Worcester in Stow/K II.166.

172Goldsmith: LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 233r. A Gilbert de Steyndrop is also listed as a Goldsmiths' warden in 1342-43 and 1350-51 (Goldsmiths' MS 1518, pp. 6 and 9).

173Nightingale states (see, e.g., p. 205) that he began as a Roper.

174Draper: LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 233r.

175Or Simon de Bedyngton: see Beaven I.286, where Beaven also states the correct form to be 'almost certainly' Benyngton.

176Draper: LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 233r; also Beaven I.267 (Simon de Bedyngton; see also I.286).

177Ironmonger: LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 233r.

178Goldsmith: LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 233r; and see Beaven I.286 and 267. Company warden in 1345-46, 1349-50, 1353-54, 1359-60 (Goldsmiths' MS 1518, pp. 7, 9, 11, 23).

179The Pepperers became the Grocers in 1372; Warde is a Grocer when mayor in 1375-76.

180Ironmonger: Stow/K I.281.

181Fishmonger: Beaven I.389. Mercer: LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 233r.

182There is an Adam (de) Wymondham, Mercer, in CPMR 1 (1323-64) p. 259 (1362) and CPMR 2 (1364-81) p. 76 (1367).

183Fishmonger: Beaven I.389. Stockfishmonger: LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 233v.

184Grocer: Beaven I.390; but Nightingale states p. 184 that, although closely associated with the Grocers, Philipot never became a company member. Fishmonger: see Wills II.275 n. 1.

185Grocer: Beaven I.225, though not in his chronological listing I.389. A John Aubrey is listed in Grocers' GL MS 11570 p. 45 (new MS #: CLC/L/GH/A/001/MS11570/001) as a company member in 1373; his name has subsequently been crossed out, as have others in the same list (largely marked as dead), but the deletion date is unknown. Beaven I.389 records the sheriff Aubrey as alderman 1370-77 and as dying c. December 1380. The next list of company members in GL MS 11570 is dated 1383 and no Aubrey is included. Nightingale (see, e.g., pp. 231-32) discusses a Grocer John Aubrey who sought election as an alderman in 1370, though she does not mention any term for him as sheriff. CPMR 2 (1364-81) lists both a John Aubrey, Pepperer p. 71 (1367), and a John Aubrey, Cordwainer p. 200 (1375).

186Vintner: Beaven I.390, though at I.343 he puts Lyons among the Goldsmiths.

187Draper: Beaven I.391; Draper or Skinner: Stow/K II.168 (for the 1382-83 mayoralty only).

188Fishmonger: Beaven I.397. Goldsmith: LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 233v; Fishmonger: Wills II.352 n. 2.

189Spelled as William Staman (sheriff) by Hughes p. 202.

190Not the same individual as the 1401-02 sheriff William Venour: see, e.g., Beaven I.338, 397, 403.

191All three originally elected officers for 1391-92--mayor John Heende, sheriff John Shadworth, and sheriff Henry Vanner--were deprived of office 25 June 1392 and imprisoned for a short time: see LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/06) fo. 233v, LBH (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/008) fo. 270v, Calendar LBF pp. 289-90 and n. 2, and Beaven I.401. Appointed by the king in their places were sheriffs Gilbert Maghfeld and Thomas Newenton (Letters Patent 25 June, sworn 1 July: LBH fo. 270v) and, as warden, first Edward Dalyngregge (Letters Patent 25 June, sworn 1 July: LBH fo. 270v), and then Baldwin de Radyngton (Letters Patent 22 July: LBH fo. 273v). See also LBF fo. 233v. According to Calendar LBH p. 379 n. 1 (citing Higden), during the interval between the removal of Heende and the appointment of Dalyngregge, the city was ruled by William Staundon.

192John in Stow/K II.170, but William in Beaven II.2 and in Skinners' GL MS 31692 fo. 4r (new MS #: CLC/L/SE/A/004A/MS31692).

193Not the same individual as the 1389-90 mayor William Venour: see, e.g., Beaven I.338, 397, 403.

194Beaven I.234 notes that Merlawe appears to have been both an Ironmonger and a Fishmonger (and incorrectly states that he is described as an Ironmonger in the LBI notice [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/009, fo. 204] of his election to the mayoralty in 1417). Merlawe is an Ironmonger as both sheriff and (twice) mayor in LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 234; and see Wills II.428-29.

195Grocer: Beaven II.4. Mercer: Stow/K II.171; but Grocer: Stow/K I.252. See also Grocers' GL MS 11570 p. 102 (new MS #: CLC/L/GH/A/001/MS11570/001; the company pays for minstrels for the oath-taking of Halton as a Grocer sheriff).

196Skinner: A Chronicle p. 91; and a Thomas Duk, Skinner, died 1411 (Wills II.429).

197William Cotton in Stow/K II.171.

198Fishmonger: Beaven II.5; identified as an Ironmonger in 1433 in LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 127, as noted by Beaven II.229; Fishmonger in LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 234r. (Cf. Richard Merlawe sheriff 1402-03, mayor 1409-10 and 1417-18.)

199Grocer: Beaven II.4. Nightingale p. 344 records that Sevenoke originally went through his apprenticeship to, and became free as, an Ironmonger. See also Company/Occupation n. to John Michell mayor 1424-25.

200Vintner: LBI (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/009) fo. 126r. Anne Crawford, A History of the Vintners' Company (London: Constable, 1977) pp. 35-36 also mentions a prominent early 15th century Vintner of this name; and see also CPMR 4 (1413-37) p. 9 (1413) for a John Micholl, Vintner.

201Grocer: LBI (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/009) fo. 126r; and see also the Grocers' GL MS 11570 pp. 111 and 112 (new MS #: CLC/L/GH/A/001/MS11570/001; the company pays for minstrels for a 1413-14 Grocer sheriff). See also Beaven I.287 and 270, and the Grocers' GL MS 11592A (Admissions; new MS # CLC/L/GH/C/003/MS11592A/001) under 1383, Jankyn Sutton. (Stow/K I.305 has Goldsmith.) Sutton was a company warden in 1406-07: see the Grocers' GL MS 11570 p. 102 (new MS #: as above).

202Stockfishmonger: Beaven II.4. Grocer: LBI (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/009) fo. 135r (as sheriff 1414-15); Fishmonger: LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 234r (as mayor 1424-25, 1436-67) and Stow/K II.172 and 173 (as mayor 1424-25, 1436-37). Beaven II.4 n. 7 cites his own Notes & Queries article on the company concerned: S.10, 12 (6 November 1909) 361-62. Nightingale states (pp. 379-81) that all three of John Michell (Fishmonger), William Sevenoke (Ironmonger), and William Cauntbrigge (Ironmonger) became Grocers, that Cauntbrigge called himself both Ironmonger and Grocer, and that Michell eventually chose the Fishmongers over the Grocers.

203Grocer: Beaven II.5. See Company/Occupation n. to John Michell mayor 1424-25.

204For Read's first name see LBI (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/009) fo. 203v and also LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 234r; Stow/K II.171 lists H. Read.

206LBI (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/009) fo. 220r. (He was drowned in the Thames, supposedly as he went to relieve himself; see Charles Lethbridge Kingsford, ed., Chronicles of London (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1905) pp. 297-98.)

207Fishmonger: LBI (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/009) fo. 220r; see also Beaven I.287 and 270.

208Elected Tuesday, 11 October 1418, sworn Guildhall and to Westminster Wednesday, 12 October (LBI [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/009] fo. 220r-v).

209Beaven II.6 n. 12 notes that another John Boteler, Draper, became sheriff in 1420 (but was never an alderman).

210Draper: see Beaven II.6 n. 12; also Stow/K I.235 and LBI (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/009) fo. 254r, and CPMR 4 (1413-37) p. 109 (Draper and sheriff, 1421). (Not the John Botiler who was a Mercer and 1419-20 sheriff.) A John Botiller appears in the early parts of the Drapers' earliest extant accounts, Drapers' MS WA1 (formerly MS +140).

211Draper: LBI (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/009) fo. 270r (John Weston); see also Beaven I.287 and 270. A William Weston appears frequently, as a warden and otherwise, in Drapers' MS WA1 (formerly MS +140).

212Beaven II.229 corrects his II.6 designation of Ironmonger (a designation also given in Stow/K I.207 and in LBK [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010] fo. 9r).

213John Arnold in Stow/K II.172; but Robert Arnold, Grocer, in LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 39v; Robert Arnold in Jor. 2 (LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/002) fo. 84r. A Chronicle p. 115 also has Robert Arnold, though identifying his company as the Haberdashers. Nightingale p. 359 calls Arnold originally a Haberdasher and forced to become a Grocer. The Grocers pay 'diuersez costages' in respect to him during their 1426-27 accounting year (Grocers' GL MS 11570 p. 162 [new MS #: CLC/L/GH/A/001/MS11570/001]), i.e., during the year he was sheriff, and he is listed (p. 175) as a member of the livery in 1428. See also Grocers' (20th century) GL MS 11592A (Admissions; new MS #: CLC/L/GH/C/003/MS11592A/001) under 1426, Robert Arnold.

214Draper: LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 39v; see also Beaven I.287 and 271. A John Higham appears, as a warden and otherwise, in the Drapers' earliest extant accounts, Drapers' MS WA1 (formerly MS +140), passim.

215Mercer: LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 55v. See also Mercers' MS Wardens' Accounts 1347-1464 fos. 98v and 100r (the Mercers receive and pay money for Abbot as a Mercer sheriff). See also Beaven I.287 and 271.

216Beaven at II.218 corrects to Dufhous his previous spelling (I.90) of Dufthons, and uses 'Dufthous (or Dufhous)' in his index.

217Fishmonger: LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 55v.

218Draper: Stow/K I.253; but see Merchant Taylors' GL MS 34048/1 fo. 211r (new MS #: CLC/L/MD/D/003/MS34038/001; expenses for a Tailor sheriff in 1429). For Holland's membership in both companies, see Caroline M. Barron, 'Ralph Holland and the London Radicals,' rpt. in eds. Richard Holt and Gervase Rosser, The Medieval Town: A Reader in English Urban History 1200-1540 (New York: Longman, 1990) pp. 162-63. His name appears a number of times in the Drapers' earliest extant accounts, Drapers' MS WA1 (formerly MS +140), passim.

219Draper: Stow/K II.173; and a Walter Chertsey, Draper, also appears in the early parts of the Drapers' earliest extant accounts, Drapers' MS WA1 (formerly MS +140), and in CPMR 4 (1413-37) pp. 102 (1421), 145 (1422), 171 (1424), 260 (1431), 276-77(1435).

220See Drapers' MS WA1 (formerly MS +140) fos. A1r, D2v, G1v, and G2v (the company pays oath-taking expenses for Lynge as a Draper sheriff).

221Fishmonger: LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 162v. Draper: A Chronicle p. 123, but not found in Drapers' MS WA1 (earliest extant accounts [formerly MS +140]). A Thomas Morsted, Fishmonger, in is CPMR 5 (1437-57) p. 160 (1438).

222LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 171r has Draper; but the Merchant Taylors pay for trumpeters this year at the sheriffs' oath-taking (Merchant Taylors' GL MS 34048/1 fo. 301r [new MS #: CLC/L/MD/D/003/MS34048/001]). A William Chapman was Tailor master 1428-29 (see GL MS 34048/1 fo. 191v [new MS #: CLC/L/MD/D/003/MS34048/001]); and no William Chapman is listed in the Drapers' earliest set of wardens' accounts running c. 1413-41 (Drapers' MS WA1 [formerly MS +140]). Chapman was probably a Tailor only, though possibly he was connected also with the Drapers; see Company/Occupation n. to Ralph Holland sheriff 1429-30, and cf. John Derby sheriff 1445-56.

223Mercer: LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 171r; see also Mercers' MS Wardens' Accounts 1347-1464 fos. 127r and 130r (the Mercers are receiving and paying money for Hales as a Mercer sheriff).

224Mercer: Jor. 3 (LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/003) fo. 171v; also Mercers' MS Wardens' Accounts 1347-1464 fos. 131r and 133v (the Mercers are receiving and paying money for Dyke as a Mercer sheriff). Beaven I.145 lists a Hugh Dyke, Mercer, as a nominee for alderman in 1437.

225Grocer: LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 178v; see also Grocers' GL MS 11570 pp. 238, 258, and 260 (new MS #: CLC/L/GH/A/001/MS11570/001; the Grocers receive and pay money for Marshal as a Grocer sheriff).

226Mercer: Stow/K I.110, 275; also Mercers' MS Wardens' Accounts 1347-1464 fos. 139v-140r (the Mercers receive and pay money for Rich as a Mercer sheriff), although Rich's Mercer identity has been deleted in LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 197v.

227Salter: Wills II.533.

228Tailor: see Merchant Taylors' GL MS 34048/1 fo. 358r and 365v (new MS #: CLC/L/MD/D/003/MS34048/001; the company is receiving and paying money for the oath-taking of a Tailor sheriff).

229Nightingale, e.g. p. 453, describes him as also a Grocer.

230Beaven I.330 n.2 notes that Derby is described in his will (1479) as a Draper [see Wills II.579-80] but that he appears to be identical to the John Derby who was master of the Tailors and Linen Armourers in 1461-62. See also Beaven I.82 and 345, and II.9. In LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 283v Derby is identified as a Draper, and also in Drapers' MS WA1 (formerly MS +140), passim. Caroline M. Barron, 'Ralph Holland and the London Radicals,' rpt. in eds. Richard Holt and Gervase Rosser, The Medieval Town: A Reader in English Urban History 1200-1540 (New York: Longman, 1990) p. 162 n. 8 cites Derby as unusually both a Draper and a Tailor. Cf. 1429-30 sheriff Holland and 1437-38 sheriff Chapman.

231Godfrey in Stow/K II.174 (as sheriff 1446-47) and 175 (as mayor 1457-58).

232Beaven II.9 n. 14 corrects his Brewer designation of I.56, 329 (which he calls 330).

233Spelled as William Aulyn (sheriff) by Hughes p. 203.

234Pewterer: suggested by Beaven II.164 and 229. A William Dere is included in the first quarterage payment list in the Pewterers' GL MS 7086/1 fo. 14v (new MS #: CLC/L/PE/D/002/MS07086/001), for 1456-57, but his name has been crossed out and does not appear in subsequent quarterage lists, the next two being on fo. 18v (for 1458-59) and fo. 21r (for 1459-60). Beaven lists sheriff William Dere as an alderman 1451-56, with a will dated June 1459 and proved February 1464.

235Thomas Cook, Junior: LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 274r.

236Stockfishmonger: Beaven II.11. Fishmonger: LBK (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/010) fo. 278v.

237Tallow Chandler: Caroline Barron (personal card file at the former Corporation of London Records Office) identifies Steward as a Chandler. A John Steward was master of the Tallow Chandlers in June 1467 and in December 1472 (see Randall Monier-Williams, The Tallow Chandlers of London III [London: Kaye and Ward, 1973] p. 53), and was also a company benefactor; and for a John Styward, Chandler, in an October 1455 record, see Jor. 5 (LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/005) fo. 267v, and also (in 1460) CPMR 6 (1458-82) p. 155 (Tallow Chandler).

238Edwards in Stow/K II.175.

239Goldsmith: Jor. 6 (LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/006) fo. 177v. A Thomas Reyner the elder was a Goldsmiths' warden in 1455-56, 1460-61, and 1464-65 (Goldsmiths' MS 1520 pp. 67, 83, 97), and in several earlier years as well, and a Thomas Rayner the younger, in 1459-60 (Goldsmiths' MS 1520 p. 79).

240Mercer: Mercers' MS Wardens' Accounts 1347-1464 fos. 193v and 194r (the Mercers are receiving and paying money for Nedeham as a Mercer sheriff). See also Beaven I.288 and 272.

241Nightingale (see pp. 499 and 534) states that his original name was John Leynham.

242Not the same individual as John Stokker sheriff 1477-78 (see Beaven II.11 and 15).

243Mercer: Beaven II.12. Vintner: LBL (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 5v, but for Mercer see also Jor. 6 (LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/006) fo. 21r and Mercers' MS Wardens' Accounts 1347-1464 fos. 201v and 202r (the Mercers receive and pay money for Lok as a Mercer sheriff).

244Mercer: Jor. 7 (LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/007) fo. 39r; see also Mercers' MS Wardens' Accounts 1347-1464 fos. 207v and 208r [my count; leaves are unfoliated](the Mercers are receiving and paying money for Muschampe as a Mercer sheriff).

245Tailor: LBL (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 33v; see also Davies p. 57 n. 38. (See also Beaven: the aldermanic nominee sheriff J. Stone [I.138 and 154] is presumably the same as the aldermanic nominee John Stone, Tailor [I.231].)

246LBL (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 52r and LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 234v; Beaven II.xxxix; Jor. 7 (LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/007) fo. 150r (died at dawn 20 June).

247Fuller: LBL (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 46v.

248Elected Saturday, 20 June 1467, to Westminster Monday, 22 June (LBL [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011] fo. 52r). LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 234v gives the Westminster date as 21 June.

249Nicholas Marchall (Ironmonger) is listed as sheriff 1467-68 by Beaven II.12, but is not named as sheriff in any of Stow/K, Hughes, LBL (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011), or Jor. 7 (LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/007). In the Ironmongers' mid-15th century accounts (in GL MS 16988/1 [new MS #: CLC/L/IB/D/001/MS16988/001]) he is a prominent company member, and a warden in both 1455-58 and the early 1460s. The accounts contain no reference to him as sheriff and no unusual expenses such as might be incurred for a company sheriff. Beaven II. 12-13 also lists both Humphrey Hayford and Thomas Stalbrook as sheriffs 1467-68.

250See Grocers' GL MS 11570A p. 29 (money received for sheriff's minstrels; new MS #: CLC/L/GH/A/006/MS11570A), and GL MS 11571/2 (new MS #: CLC/L/GH/D/001/MS11571/002), e.g., fos. 150r, 172r-173r. (On both fos. 172v and 180r, GL MS 11571/2 [new MS # as above], he is called 'Symkyn' Smith, and also when a company warden in 1461-62, see fo. 2r.)

251Goldsmith: LBL (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 77v and LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 234v. See also Goldsmiths' MS 1520 p. 155 col. b (costs relating to a company member being sheriff at Midsummer 1472) and pp. 177 and 201 (Aleyn as a Goldsmith).

253Not the same individual as John Stokker sheriff 1459-60 (see Beaven II.11 and 15).

254Ironmonger: LBL (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 136r; see also the Ironmongers' GL MS 16988/1 fo. 41v (new MS #: CLC/L/IB/D/001/MS16988/001; the company pays the oath-taking costs of Byfeld as an Ironmonger sheriff) and fo. 42r-v. See also Beaven I.199, 190, 154.

255Dyer: LBL (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 156r and LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 234v.

256LBL (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 168v and LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 234v. Elected and sworn Saturday, 20 October 1481, to Westminster Monday, 22 October (LBL fo. 168v).

257Beaven II.16.

258Elected Monday, 7 February 1485, sworn Guildhall Thursday, 10 February, to Westminster Friday, 11 February (LBL [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 203r).

259Beaven II.17. Apparently not replaced. Beaven does not include him in his list (II.xxxix) of sheriffs who died in office. LBL fo. 212r-v has Breteyn at Common Council on 23 September and absent from 24 September.

260Beaven II.17.

261Elected and sworn Guildhall Thursday, 24 February 1491, to Tower Wednesday, 2 March (LBL [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 283v).

262Beaven II.18.

263Not William Browne, Mercer, sheriff 1504-05, mayor 1513-14. See Beaven II.20 and 21.

264He was translated to the Grocers in 1503 (Beaven II.20).

265Haberdasher: LBL (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/011) fo. 316v.

266Tailor when sheriff in 1498-99, Merchant Taylor when mayor in 1508-09. The Tailors became Merchant Taylors in 1503.

267Thomas Brond in Stow/K II.179, but referred to by Beaven (II.xxxvii) as Richard Bronde; also Richard Bronde in LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 235r and in Hughes p. 204; Richard Brande in LBM (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012) fo. 18v and in Jor. 10 (LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/010) fo. 163r.

268Fishmonger: LBM (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012) fo. 18v (Richard Brande).

269Ironmonger: LBM (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012) fo. 34v; also LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 235r; and the Ironmongers' GL MS 16988/1 fos. 86v-87v (new MS #: CLC/L/IB/D/001/MS16988/001) identifies him as sheriff 1501-02 and records the various costs of having a company member as sheriff. Beaven I.91 lists a Henry Hede, Ironmonger, as an aldermanic nominee (and also I.35, H. Hede).

270Elected and sworn Guildhall Saturday, 11 November 1503 (LBM [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012] fo. 82v), to Westminster [Monday,] 13 November (Raphael Holinshed, Chronicles of England, Scotland and Ireland, ed. Henry Ellis, 6 vols. (London: J. Johnston, et al., 1807-8), III.531).

271LBM (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012) fo. 82v. LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 235r gives 9 November.

272Draper: LBM (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012) fo. 78v; also LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 235r; and see Beaven I.199, 3, 109. The Drapers pay for trumpeters (and their hats, etc.) for him as a Draper sheriff (Drapers' MS WA2 fo. 77r [formerly MS +403]); and he was a company warden in 1494-95 (fo. 58v).

273Not William Browne, Mercer, sheriff 1491-92, mayor 1507-08. See Beaven II.20 and 21.

274In this year Robert Johnson, Goldsmith, was elected sheriff, along with William Copynger (the mayor's choice: Jor. 10 [LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/010] fo. 364v), but the king refused to admit Johnson. See Stow/K II.179 (Thomas Johnson) n. 2. Johnson appears, however, in the Stow/K main listings; and Beaven II.21 lists him as sheriff in 1506. LBM's entry for the election of sheriffs in 1506 (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012 fo. 124r) is unfinished. The Mercers' MS Acts of Court 1 records (fo. 137v, assembly of 8 October) the dismissal of Johnson and the admitting of William Fitz William, who is listed by Beaven II.21 as sheriff 1506-07.

275Merchant Taylor: LBM (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012) fo. 133v; also LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 235r. Probably the John Kirkby, Merchant Taylor, mentioned in Stow/K I.145 as a sheriff but without a date given. See also Beaven I.92, 155, and Davies, e.g. p. 295.

276Merchant Taylor: LBM (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012) fo.146v; also LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 235v; and this Smyth is also presumably the Richard Smyth, Merchant Taylor, listed as an aldermanic nominee in Beaven I.218. See Davies, e.g. p. 301.

277Merchant Taylor: LBM (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012) fo. 163r; also LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 235v, and Stow/K I.351. See Davies, e.g. pp. 288-89.

278Elected Friday, 16 June 1514 (LBF [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006] fo. 235v).

279John Bridges: Stow/K II.180 (alternate spellings 'Brugges' and 'Bruge' also given). But Stow/K uses 'Brugge' (II.181) when this sheriff becomes mayor in 1520.

280Beaven II.23. LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 235v gives 14 June 1514.

281Elected Monday, 22 October 1515, sworn Guildhall Saturday, 27 October, to Westminster Monday, 29 October--with mayor (LBM [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012] fo. 255v and LBF [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006] fo. 235v; Rep. 3 [LMA MS: COL/CA/01/01/003] fos. 52v-53r, 55r).

282LBM (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/012) fo. 255v, and Beaven II.xxxix.

283Formerly a Broderer, Thurston was translated to the Goldsmiths 30 August 1515 (see Beaven II.23).

284Merchant Taylor: LBN (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/013) fo. 171v, LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 236r.

285Formerly a Brewer, translated to the Mercers 7 November 1521 (Beaven II.25).

286Spelled as Michael Wormer (sheriff) by Hughes p. 204.

287Choppyn was later (20 June 1532) translated to the Grocers (Beaven II.27).

288Clothworker: LBO (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/014) fo. 232v; also Clothworkers' MS CL/D/5/1 (Wardens' Accounts 1) fo. 4v of no. 10 (company receipts and expenses at Midsummer because a company member is sheriff).

289Elected [Wednesday,] 12 March, sworn Guildhall and to Tower Wednesday, 12 or 19 March (LBP [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/015] fo. 6v, Jor. 13 [LMA MS: COL/CC/01/01/013] fo. 365v); died September (LBP fo. 22v), by 16 September (Rep. 9 [LMA MS: COL/CA/01/01/009] fo. 25r).

290Butcher: LBP (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/015) fo. 6v; see also LBF (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/006) fo. 236r, and Stow/K I.246.

291Elected and sworn Guildhall and to Tower Thursday, 18 September 1533 (LBP [LMA MS: COL/AD/01/015] fos. 22v-23r).

292Grocer: LBP (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/015) fo. 22v. A John Preest is listed as three times a warden of the company (1526, 1534, 1537) in List of the Wardens of the Grocers' Company from 1345 to 1907 (London:[Grocers' Company,] 1907); see, e.g., Grocers' GL MS 11571/4 fo. 233v (new MS #: CLC/L/GH/D/001/MS11571/004; Preest as warden in 1526-27). The Grocers' accounts for 1533-34 (Preest's year as sheriff) are missing in the company's series (GL MS 11571/3-5 [new MS #: CLC/L/GH/D/001/MS11571/003-005]) for the early 16th century.

293LBP (LMA MS: COL/AD/01/015) fo. 6v.

Notes About Company Names

Grocers were originally called Pepperers; the company appears to have emerged as Grocers in 1372; and the Merchant Taylors were until 6 January 1503 the Tailors and Linen Armourers. For both companies the original name is used until the year of the change, and then the new name, regardless of whether the sources consulted use the old or the new designation. The Fishmongers and the Stockfishmongers were originally different companies which, after one union which did not succeed, were finally united on a permanent basis in 1536. The two different names are here reproduced until 1536, from which year only the Fishmonger designation is used, regardless of the readings of the sources.
