Agreement to indemnify the City against fire, and to roof houses with tiles.

30 Edward I. A.D. 1302. Letter-Book C. fol. lxv. (Latin.)

Thomas Bat came before John le Blund, Mayor of London, and the Aldermen, on the Friday next before the Feast of St. Hilary [13 January] in the 30th year of the reign of King Edward, son of King Henry, and bound himself, and all his rents, lands, and tenements, to keep the City of London indemnified from peril of fire and other losses which might arise from his houses covered with thatch, in the Parish of St. Laurence Candelwykstrete; and he agreed that he would have the said houses covered with tiles about the Feast of Pentecost then next ensuing.

And in case he should not do the same, he granted that the Mayor, Sheriffs, and bailiffs, of London, should cause the said houses to be roofed with tiles out of the issues of his rents aforesaid.
