Note. — From the lists of names in this Volume
I have generally omitted the words " of
Canterbury" or "of this City"; but where
a place outside Canterbury occurs in the
original documents it is always gi\en.
The reader will therefore bear in mind
that, where no place is given, Canterbury
is to be understood, except in the few
cases where neither city nor place appears
in the original Roll.

These Admissions of Freemen are found in the Chamberlains'
Accounts of the City, and are entered there because most of the admissions
involved a payment for which it was necessary the Chamberlain should
render an account. These accounts are fairly perfect, but those from 1453
to 1457 and for the year 1552-3 are missing, while those for 1392 are
incomplete. The financial year ran from Lady Day to Lady Day, until
the style was altered, and from that time the year began on January ist
and ended on December 31st. I have endeavoured to give all dates
according to the modern style. Thus, an admission dated February-, 1669,
I have given as 1670.

In the earlier years the admissions are written in Latin, but
while I have been careful to give the surname of each Freeman as it
stands in the original, the Christian name has been modernised, and
Joh'es appears in my transcript as John, and so on of the rest. In the
occupations I have also frequently given the English equivalent and in
modern form, as I could see no advantage in giving taillour when tailor
was meant, or in writing barber under the form of harbour. My object
has been to make the book useful to the genealogist, and to present
the list in a more readable form.

At first the entries are grouped under their different classes :
Freemen by birth. Freemen by marriage, and so on ; but this soon
gave way to mixed entries, where they follow one another irrespective
of the class to which they belong. In August, 1753, the Town Clerk
suddenly found that he could abbreviate his entries very much, and so
he made his record, omitting all details, and simply giving the name,
occupation and date, winding up with "by birth," "by marriage," "by
purchase," &:c. Consequently we lose the names of fathers and wives,
and the masters to whom apprentices had been bound.


Specimens of the admission forms ot the loth century are
given below.

the rest was gevyn hym by the Bourmott.

All Freemen on their admission had to take an oath, a copy
of which I have found on a loose leaf bearing date 1426. The oath
runs as follows : —

ye schal swere that ye schal be guod and trewe to our lord the Kyng
Herry, Kynge of Ingelond. and to his herys Kynges. And yc schal be
obey.saunt to the baylefs [mayre] tht gouerneth the c^te. And the ffranchyses
customes and Vsages of the cite made and to be made mayntene &
susteyne. to yowr power. And the same cite as moche as in yow ys.
(from) grevance & damage schal kepe. Also ye schal be partener of all
charges tochand [touchyng] the cite as in somonses contribuc'ones wacchys
tallagys and oth' charge as oth'e fremcn of the cyte ye schal enplete no
freman. of the cite with owte the cite yf ye mowe haue rygt [right] afore


the baylyf [mayre] of the cite. And yf ye knowe eny congregc'on, assemble
or affynite ymad ageins the pees ye schal warne the baylyf [mayre] th' beth
[ys] forthetyme. Also ye schal take non App'ntys but yf he be freman born.
Alle the pr'm'eys aforesayd ye schal kepe wel & trewly so helpe yow god
and alle hys seyntys [the holy doom] and vpon payne of lesyng of yowre
liberte. And that money that thow hast to paye for thy vretham thow
shalte trewly pay to the s'iaunt of this chambyr p' s'ca eu'ngelia at such
daye as the chambr and ye be acord

In 1448 the Bailiffs, as the Chief Magistrates were called, gave
place to the Mayor, and thus it became necessary to substitute Mayor
for Bailiffs in the oath. This was done by drawing a pen through
Bailiffs and writing Mayor above. In my copy of the oath I have
placed these and other substituted words within brackets.

I also give the form of oath as administered in the year
1902, from which it will be seen how little the modern form varies
from the older one : —

You shall Swear that you will be true and faitliful to our Sovereign
Lord King Edward VII. by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Ireland, and of the British Dominions beyond the Seas,
King, Defender of the Faith, His Heirs and Successors ; Also you shall
be obedient to the Mayor of this City for the time being ; and the
Franchises, Usages, and Customs of the said City made and to be made
maintain and sustain to your Power. Also you shall be partner of all
things touching the said City as in Summonses, Contributions, Watches,
Tallages, and all other charges, as other Freemen of the said City are ;
and if you shall know of any Congregation, Affinity or Assembly made
against the King's Majesty's Peace, you shall give timely notice thereof to
the Mayor of the City for the time being. All these points aforesaid you
shall well and truly keep. So help you God ; and upon Pain of losing
your Liberties.

The sons of Freemen were admitted at all times without any
payment ; those who married the daughter of a Freeman usually paid
ii?,d. ; and those who had served an apprenticeship paid 4s. id. In 167 1
these two last payments were raised to 7s. 6d. each, but in 1676 they
were reduced to their former level. The fine payable by those who pur-
chased their freedom varied considerably. Thus, in the fifteenth century,
such sums as 6s. 8d., 8s., 13s. and 13s. 4d. were paid; in 1671 the sum
rose in one case to over twenty-five pounds. In the eighteenth century
the fine varied froin ten to twenty pounds. The difference between the
amounts paid in earlier times may possibly have arisen in this way : —
while a man could purchase his freedom by the payment of a lump sum
down, there were numbers of men (and some women) whose means were


not sufficient to pay the required amount in one sum. These came and
dwelt in the City under the title of Litrantcs and made a small payment
yearly for the privilege of living and trading within the citj^ liberties.
After a time some of these Intrantes appear in the lists with " lib " after
their names, and thus were finally admitted to full freedom. I give this
merely as a suggestion, hoping that at a future time those lists of Intrantes
from 1393 to 1592 may be printed.

There is a good deal in this book that is unsatisfactory^. !Men
appear and claim their freedom as being the sons of Freemen whose
names should appear earlier. Thus John Rumfeild claims, and gains, his
freedom as the son of John Rumfeild, but John Rumfeild the father
does not appear as a Freeman. So also William Rumfield claims
as the son of Jeremy Rumfield, but we have no Jerem}^ Rumfield of an
earlier date. Again John Burges marries Alice, daughter of Laurence
Soper, presumably a Freeman, but we have no Laurence .Soper. Again,
it is generally assumed that an apprentice claiming his freedom must
have served with a Freeman, but James Milward, who claimed as having
been apprenticed to John Wilward, claims as having served under a
master who is not in this list of Freemen. vSome of these may have
been due to carelessness on the part of the Town Clerk, while others
may be due to the assurance of the parties who asserted that such and
such a man was free when he was not free.

Occasionally we find that when a man was admitted the name and
age of his youngest child is given. This was to prevent such child
claiming his freedom when he came of age as the son of a father who
was free, the one qualification being that the child should have been
born after his father became free. This rule also applied to daughters.

The Honorary Freedom was often conferred for peculiar reasons.
Thus, Valentine Austen received his freedom because his father had been
a loyal subject to King Charles ; William Blunden, because his father
was Mayor ; Stephen Browne because he cured the leg of Nicholas
Johnson ; Samuel Charlecome on his undertaking " to serve as cook at
every Mayor's IMichaelmas feast"; another because he had taken a poor
orphan as an apprentice ; another because he had married a widow with
many children ; one because he agreed to have a selected soldier's coat
made at his own expense; another on condition "that he is to paint
yearly during his life the new IMayor's postes of his doore at 5s. the
paire." The teaching of poor children, the repair of the calivers, certain
pleasures done for jMr. Mayor and the City, the gift of a large picture


of the King's Arms, being careful and industrious in looking after the
Conduit and the Trouts in the same, teaching the art of weaving,
declining to take a fee, or Parliament wages, the gift of copies of the
City Charters, and the gift of a buck and wine to the value of 6s. 8d.,
and for many other reasons. Freedom was bestowed as a gift. The
]\Iayor, too, had the right of nominating one honorary Freeman, but
this right was surrendered in 1673, the INIayor receiving in lieu of a
free nomination the sum of six pounds. It was generally the custom
to add a proviso to these free admissions, and that proviso was that the
freedom should not descend to sons or daughters.

Besides the Freemen and Intrantes above referred to, in later
years certain persons were "tolerated." By which I understand they
were allowed to trade for a limited time. Thus in 1577-8 John Cole,
butcher, paid 3s. 4d. for occupying till Shrovetide; and in 1787 we
have the entry "Received for the toleration of Hannah Couchman,
spinster, ;£io."

In the eighteenth century politics seem to have played a prom-
inent part in Canterbury. The Freedom was frequently bestowed upon
the Members of Parliament, which calls for no remark ; but the way
in which men were brought from different parts of the country to claim
or receive their freedom, especially when an election was pending, almost
surpasses belief.

The clerical element in these admissions is conspicuous by its ab-
sence. We have no Archbishop of Canterbury, nor have we a Dean of
Canterbury ; but we have Nicholas Sympson, who claimed his freedom
as the son of John Sympson, shearman, and this Nicholas afterwards
became a Prebendary of Christ Church. Of well-known names we have
but few : two Earls of Winchilsea, James Hales, Baron of the Exchequer,
William Pitt, William Somner and Admiral Sir George Rooke. Hasted
(xii. 661.) and Bunce (MS. Notes) inform us that H.R.H. George, Prince
of Wales, was admitted to the P'reedom of the City in 1798, as a mark
of the great respect and veneration entertained for his Royal Highness
by the Mayor and Corporation. The order for the admission of H.R.H.
was, says Hasted, presented in a gold box, while Bunce asserts that it
was "inclosed in a silver gilt box, in the order described as a gold box."
But the Prince never took the oath required of a Freeman, and his name
does not appear in my list as I have not found it.

There were a few Caxtons living in Canterbury in the 15th
century. William Caxton, mercer, purchased his freedom in 1431 ; John


Caxton, also a mercer, obtained his freedom by marriage in 148 1. Of
these John Caxton died in 1485, and was buried in the church of St.
Alphage in this city. In his will he mentions a brother named Thomas,
a monk. In mj- Introduction to the Registers of St. Alphage I have
said this John Caxton was a brother of William Caxton the printer, but
I cannot now say on whose authority I made this statement. William
Caxton, of Canterbury, mercer, bears a curious resemblance to Williani
Caxton, the printer of later years, but I must leave those who are
better acquainted with the subject than I am to decide.

I have only to add that I have taken Hasted as my authority
for the dates given with the names of the various Members of Parlia-
ment on whom the Freedom of Canterbury was bestowed.
