1277 ff. Pat, Rute (for Nute) 1284 Ann Lond (indicted with holding clipped
money), Nutus, brother of Burgensis Fauberti 1299 LBC 59. He is frequently
mentioned as an importer of horses, e.g. 1276, 1282 Pat, and in 1299 he
and his brother were to be arrested for a debt to a horse-dealer contracted
at the fair of Bar-sur-Aube (LBC 59). Nutus is Langob Nôto, Nôzo (Bruckner),
OHG Noto, Nuoto.
||Burges', brother of Nutus Fulberti 1277 Pat, Burges' Fulberti de
Florencia 1280 ib., Burgensis, brother of Nute 1284 Ann Lond, Burgensis
Fauberti, citizen of Florence and horse-dealer 1299 LBC 59 (cf. no. 1),
Burgesius Fulberti of Florence 1309 Will. He had a tenement in All Hallows
Lombard St, left to him by John Nute, his nephew, a son of Nute, by his
will of 1307. Cf. Cambin Foulberd 1319 S [Bish 6].
||4. Neither has been met with elsewhere. Both were doubtless Lombard
merchants, perhaps horse-dealers. Gylemouche is a hypocoristic form of
Lombard Guilihelmus (Bruckner) with the suffix -uccio (Anselmuccio and
the like, Shakespeare's Petruchio), according to Bruckner, p. 155, of Langobardic origin. Thonchelin will be a name formed from the element panc
found in Langobardic names such as Tancomârus, Imetancus.
||Cf. John le Mareschal 1319 S [Bish 1]. Doubtless farriers.
||Hugh le Cornmetere 1298 Will (of All Hallows Lombard St; son John).
Cf. John le Cornmongere 1319 S [Bish 16]. Probably a cornmonger.
ffeffere no doubt for ffenere, the initial ff having been inadvertently
repeated. Fenere is OF fenier, feinier 'haymonger'. Cf. Gilbert le ffeynour
1319 S [Bish 4].
||His widow was no doubt Agnes Rikemannes 1329 Will, Agnes Rikeman
1331 Mem 184. She held a tenement east of a mansion in St. Peter Cornhill,
St. Benet Fink and St. Martin Outwich, later the site of Merchant Tailors'
Hall. Her tenement would have been in Bishopsgate ward, probably in
St. Martin Outwich. Rickeman may have been a chamberlain of the City.

Westwood K, W, etc.
||Roger Crok, Cossun (horse-dealer) 1280 LBA 33, R. Crock, cossun 1281
LBB 8, R. Crok of London 1280-93 Cl, R. Crok' 1294 Selden 58. On the
reason for his not being taxed, see p. 93. Possibly identical with Roger the
lame horsemonger (claudum mercatorem equorum), who got a house in St.
Sepulchre in 1277 (LBA 225). This might help to explain the surname.
Crock 'an old ewe' is found from 1528 (OED).
