He had the lease of a house with Richard de Toterich, hosier [1292 S, Cordw 44] in 1294-5 and was connected with Richard de Weleford, hosier [1292 S, Cordw 45]; he was no doubt a hosier. Sir Roger de l'Isle (de Insula), dead in 1296 (Fine), was keeper of the Royal Wardrobe. This explains the surname de la Garderobe.
67. Robert le Fullere 1302 LBC 113 (elector for the Tron for weighing wool with Walter and William le Fullere, thus a woolmonger). William le Fullere junior (of St. Mary Fenchurch) in his will of 1316 left certain houses to Stephen le Fullere and Robert, his apprentice, the latter probably the taxpayer of 1319.

70. Adam in the Lane 1310 LBD 235 (surety of no. 68), 1321 LBE 159, A. In-the-Lane 1327 Will (a tenant in St. Mary Fenchurch). He frequently appears with chaloners (tapicers) and was evidently one himself.

72. Hugh ate Coke 1320 LBE 131 (resident at Fancherche), H. ate Cok 1322 ib. 169 (owner of houses in St. Mary Fenchurch). He appears with chaloners (tapicers) and was probably one himself. Surname perhaps from a house called The Cock.
