Robert de Weneloc c. 1200 HMC 9th Rep 26 a (witness London), Walter de Wenlok 1287 MxFF 61 (a claimant in Stanwell Mx). - Wenlock Sa.
2. John de Hertford 1286 LBA 166, 1300 Mem 43 (of Broad St ward). Presumably a merchant. - Hertford Hrt.

5. Nicholas Hauteyn 1298 Mayors 12, 1298 LBA 184 (alderman). He was an alderman (of Coleman St) only in 1298 and probably died early. In Ant Leg 250 Nicole Hauteyn, mercer, is stated to have been a sheriff in 1307-8. This is a mistake for Nicholas Pycot, mercer, but Nicholas Hauteyn was probably a mercer too; cf. no. 6.
6. Walter Haweteyn 1276-7 LBA 12, W. Hauteyn 1282 ib. 55 (mercer), 1292-3 Will. He left to Alice his wife, a nun at St. Sepulchre's, his dwellinghouse upon Cornhill; she was a daughter of John de Evre (cf. no. 3). He was a sheriff 1286-7 and alderman of Coleman St 1290-2. Walter Hauteyn, mercer, of Lincoln LBC 10 must be a different man. - Cf. CripI 28.
7. Perhaps a cordwainer like Reginald de Chigenhal (1280 LBA 33), Roger de Chygenhale (1281 LBB 8). - Chignall Ess.
8. Robert de Langgele 1311-12 LBD 166. Probably a mereer and connected with Jordan de Langele 1302 LBB 121 (mercer), J. de Langeleye 1321-2 Cor 46 (a tenant in St. Peter). - Langley (common).
9. William de Creshantone 1300 LBC 67, W. de Creshaultone 1306 LBB 173 (a shoemaker of Cordwanerstrete). He will have moved after 1292. - Carshalton Sr.
10. Robert Russel 1282 CW 60 (will of Juliana Maydegod). She had a nephew Ralph, who may well be Ralph Russel 1275 RH 424 (juror BroadSt), 1297 Will (cutler, a tenant in St. Christopher). Robert may have been a cutler. - Cf. Bridge 18.
11. Stephen de Hakeneye 1303 Mem 47 (pheliper), 1310 LBD 114 (fripperer), 1312 Pat. - Hackney Mx.
12. Colnbrook Bk. Cf. no. 33.
13. Alexander le Coffrer 1295 LBB 60 (executor of no. 63), 1303 Mem 47, 1312 Will (a tenant in St. Peter).

18. Egidius le Quelter 1282 Selden 55, Giles le Quilter 1285 LBA 91, G. le Quiltepointer 1286 Pat, G. le Cutepointer 1303 Will (owner of tenements in St. Christopher and St. Bartholomew). Christiana, his wife, was a daughter of Alice de Evre [no. 3] and is called C. de Evre in her will of 1316. Her chief messuage was in St. Christopher. - Quilter and quiltepointer (OF coutepointier) mean 'maker of quilts or counterpanes'.
19. Colin de Northamptone, goldsmith 1278 LBA 25, Nicholas de Norhamptone, goldsmith 1303 LBB 130, N. de Northampton, goldsmith 1310 LBD 118. The identification is open to some doubt, because the ward of the goldsmith is not stated and orfrer possibly means 'maker of orphrey'. Cf. no. 55, and see Appendix.
20. Adam son of Alexander le Peyntour 1325-6 Cor 148 (juror BroadSt).
21. William le Potter 1281 LBB 5 (juror with no. 28), W. le Pottere 1310 LBD 295 (juror St. Bartholomew).

26. OF pestor 'baker'.
28. John de Lincoln 1281 LBB 5 (cordwainer), 1295 LBA 189 (witness BroadSt), 1298 Mayors 4 (warden of cordwainers), 1312 Will (cordwainer, of St. Mildred).
29. Cristian the taverner 1281 LBA 41, C. le Taverner 1291 Mem 27, 1301-2 LBC 106 (elected broker of wine).
30. Perhaps Nicholas le Pestur 1299 LBC 49, Nicholas, the baker of Cornhulle 1301 LBC 100. - Cf. no. 26.
31. William de Sancto Christoforo 1275 RH 411 (juror BroadSt), W. de St. Christopher 1291 LBA 178 (id.), W. Cristofre de Bradestrete 1316-17 Will (of St. Christopher). Cf. Thomas Cristofre 1319 S [BroadSt 31].

35. Matthew le Paumer 1275 RH 410 (juror Cornh), 1291 LBC 2 (repr. BroadSt), 1295 LBB 235 (repr. Cornh), 1298-9 Will (of St. Bartholomew). His son Thomas le Paumer (Palmere), clerk, was sworn attorney of the Commonalty in 1302-3 (LBC 115). - Cf. Bridge 66.
37. Simon the Baker 1295-6 LBA 200 (a tenant in St. Bartholomew), 1305 Mayors 219 (collector BroadSt). - Cf. no. 26.

40. Edmund le Taillur de Otteswich (i. e. St. Martin Outwich) 1293 LBC 18.

Robert his son, was sworn City carpenter in 1300-1 (LBC 86), and John was probably a carpenter. But a nephew of his, Thomas Ossekin (1279 Will), was a cordwainer. - Osekin is no doubt a font-name.
50. Possibly Eweseye is for Oweseye. If so, perhaps John Oveseye, the will of whose daughter Katherine was enrolled in 1333-4. - Osea Island Ess.
51. A water-carrier. Waterladestre has not been found elsewhere.
52. Richard de Cunnthone 1296 LBB 63, R. de Comptone 1299 ib. 93, 1302 ib. 116 (executor of no. 65), 1306 ib. 171 (a debitor of no. 53). Agnes, relict of R. de Comptone 1307-8 ib. 201. Perhaps a mercer. - Compton (common).
53. Simon le Fraunceys 1292 LBA 140, 1306, 1307-8 LBB 171, 201 (cf. no. 52). He is described in 1306 as feeble and in extremis, blind and partly deaf, and William de Toppesfeld, mercer, was surety for Robert de Mokkynge, fishmonger, who was to help him in his affairs. He was very likely a mercer.
54. Nicholas le Coffrer 1281 LBB 9 (surety with nos. 34 and 63), 1297 ib. 237 (repr. BroadSt), 1300 Will. He had a tenement in St. Peter and founded chantries in St. Bartholomew and St. Mary Colechurch.

The surname varies between Pheliper and Upheldere, both 'fripperer', and Hodere. He will have been a fripperer at least in the early part of his career. Cf. Nicholas Godwyn 1319 S [Walbr 65].
63. John de Bottone, coffrer 1281 LBB 9, J. Bocton, coffrer 1287 ADA 1625, J. de Bokton 1298-9 Will. He was dead in 1295, since his executors are mentioned in that year (LBB 60). He will have lived in St. Bartholomew, where he founded a chantry. - Boughton K, Chs.
64. Thomas le Chapeler 1294 LBA 199 (witness St. Margaret Lothbury). The surname means 'hatter', but Thomas was very likely a mercer.
