Footnotes

1 I have presumed this to be the date, as a survey of the books was made in this year, John Vernon being Master, and probably by Richard Langley (the Clerk), see Court Minute, 8th August 1608; Appendix A (7), p. 543.
2 See Mem. XXXV.
3 See Mem. XXV.
4 This is not the one which is at present in use, which is engraved at one end with the Arms of the Merchant Taylors Company, and at the other "The Gift of Thomas Roberts,6 1679. It was restored to the Company mounted on a silver handle, encircled with a silver band, bearing the date of restoration, "15th July 1856, by Captain Tupper through Charles Rickards, a member of the Court."
5 See Mem. XXVII.
6 See Mem. III.
7 This gentleman does not appear to have been on the Court of the Company. Another hammer in use was the gift of Thomas Roberts, 1822 (Qy. Master, 1797).
