He became Chamberlain of the City, and by virtue of that office, according to the record (Letter-Book C, fo. lxxi b), he was also Coroner of London, although the latter office is repeatedly said to have appertained to the King's Butlership. It is certain that most, if not all, Coroners of London held also the post of King's Butler. His appointment as King's Butler, according to the 'Liber Custumarum,' dated from 25 Nov., 30 Edward I. [A.D. 1301] 'Lib. Cust.' (Rolls Series), i. 243.
