Footnotes

1. Geoffrey Haukeseye 1330 CW 359. A chantry for him was founded by John Bigge, potter [1319 S, Ports 11]. Hardly identical with G. Hauekesheye, baker 1282 LBA 121 (drawn on the hurdle). The surname, which means hawk's eye', is recorded in Essex in the 13th cent. (William Hauekeseye 1237-45 Colchester 608).
2. William de Horsham 1299 LBC 46 (butcher), 1304 LBB 138 (pledge of no. 18). - Horsham Nf, Sx.
3. John le Lung 1300 Cor 7 (surety Ports), J. le Long, carter 1309 Will (of St. Botolph).
4. Jordan le Macegref 1295 Pat (a tenant of two messuages in the suburb, claimed by Peter Berneval [no. 19]), J. de Alegate 1298 Mayors 12 (brother of Robert Jordan [no. 5]). Carnifex and OF macegref mean 'butcher'.
5. Robert Jordan 1298 Mayors 11 (indicted with assault in Ports). No doubt a butcher; cf. no. 4.
6. 7. Philip le Tanur 1300 LBB 99, Ph. le Tannour 1301 ib. 108 (of St. Botolph), Ph. de Hundesdiche, tanner 1304 ib. 141. Gervasius, brother of Philip de Hundesdiche 1299-1300 Mayors 60, G. de Hundesdiche 1319 S [Ports 2], G. de Houndisch 1325 (1329) CW 348 (a tenant upon Houndisdich). Perhaps sons of Stephen Tannator or de Hundesdiche (1275 RH 423, 414, juror Ports). Houndsditch is now in Ports and BishE.
8. Perhaps John de Berkeweye 1300 LBB 96. Alice de Berkwey and John her son were debitors of a French wine-merchant in 1291 (LBA 133). If identical with the latter, John may have been a taverner. - Barkway Hrt.
9. Probably a butcher like John Hoder 1319 S [Ports 1]. - Cf. CripI 48.
10. ? Ralph de Langeford 1295 Will (a tenant in Mincing Lane, Tower, Langb). - Langford (common).
11. John Billerica 1300 Cor 7 (surety Ports), J. de Billirica 1302 LBB 119, J. de Billerica 1319 S [Ports 42], J. le Brewer of Billirica 1305 Mayors 191. - Billericay Ess.
12. Walter le Teinturer (sic) 1300 Cor 7 (surety Ports), W. le Gerdlere 1300 ib. 13 (id.), W. le Gurdelere 1306-7 Will (wife Agnes, sons Richard, Walter). Cf. 1319 S [Ports 8, 39]. Presumably a girdler. But cf. Martin Girdlere, Bocher 1332 S [Ports].
13. Cf. Ranulph Daniel 1275 RH 414 (juror Ports), Walter Daniel le Cartere ib. 413, 426 (of Ports, deceased). Geoffrey may have been a carter.
14. Alan le Potter 1296 LBC 23, A. le Pottere 1304 LBB 138 (pledge of no. 18), A. de Suffolk, called de Alegate, potter 1307-8 Will. Alan mentions John de Algate, >his lord<, no doubt John le Potere [no. 17]. His real surname was thus de Suffolk.
15. Salomon le Tuyller 1294 Pat. He and Elycia his wife had demised a tenement in the suburb to Edmund, the King's brother. - OF tieulier, tuilier 'tiler'.
16. Cf. Walter Cope senior [no. 22]. Walter senior is W. Cope 1275 RH 414 (juror Ports), 1294-5 Will (of St. Botolph). W. junior is W. Cope, tiler 1304 LBB 138. Both were doubtless tilers. - ME cope 'a long cope or cape'.
17. John le Pottere 1275 RH 414 (juror Ports), 1304 LBB 138 (with no. 14), J. le Potter 1297 LBB 238 (repr. Ports), J. de Algate, potter 1307-8 (see no. 14). He may be the John le Poter who in 1288 made a new laundry in the Abbey of Ramsey (LBA 172).
18. Edmund Trentemars 1281 LBB 8, 1285-6 LBA 210 (repr. Ports), 1302 LBC 131 (executor of W. de Lewes [Bridge 1]), 1303 Mem 49 (7s. 6d. arrears of tallage), 1308 LBC 168 (a landholder in Stepney). He claimed a messuage in the suburb of London, formerly held by one Walter, his ancestor (1281 Selden 55). The latter may be Walter Trentemars 1260-5 ADA 2916 (a tenant in Stepney). Edmund's occupation is never stated. - OF trente marcs '30 marks'. Cf. Deumars [Dowg 15].
19. Peter Berneval 1286 Pat, 1297 LBB 238 (repr. Ports), 1306 f. ib. 173 ff. (a debitor for wine), P. de Berneval 1286 Cl, 1310-11 Will (of St. Botolph). Apparently a vintner or taverner. - Berneval-le-Grand near Dieppe (SeineInf.).
20. A nickname from ME heved 'head', perhaps in the sense 'chief, head man'. Cf. Roger Heved 1299-1300 Mayors 62.
21. One John de Stevehach was part owner of a tenement in FarrE in 1300 (CW 146). Cf. Richard de Stevenache 1283-4 LBA 81, R. de Stevenath, butcher 1299-1300 Mayors 65. - Stevenage Hrt.
22. Cf. no. 16.
23. Cf. Simon atte Corner 1339 Cor. 215 (juror Ports), Walter atte Hyerne 1303 LBC 193 (a tenant in St. Botolph), W. in le Hirne, of Estsmethfeld 1323 ADB 2326 (holder of shops in St. Botolph of the feoffment of James le Teulere). - ME hirne, herne (OE hyrne) 'corner'.
