4 Botolph's town, or Boston, co. Linc. The fairs held there were at one time so much frequented by the citizens of London that it became the custom to suspend the sittings of the Court of Husting every year for one month from the Feast of S. Botolph (17 June). This custom continued long after its cause had ceased, and the sittings of the court were suspended, "to the manifest retarding of law and justice," until the Mayor and Aldermen, at the entreaty of the Commonalty, issued an order in 1416 that for the future the Husting should be held upon the Feast of S. Botolph and during the succeeding month, in the same manner as at other times (Riley's 'Memorials,' pp. 637-8).
