By a clause in the Act of Oblivion (12 Car II., c 11, sect. 44) it was provided that all who since December 5, 1648, had given sentence of death on any person in the High Courts of Justice should be incapable of holding any public office after September 1, 1660. By the operation of this clause Aldermen Foot and Dethick became disqualified; Aldermen Pack, Ireton and Tichborne had been excepted from the benefits of the Act by name.
On September 4, the Aldermen who had been deprived of their seats by the House of Commons in 1649 were restored by order of the King.
1660, Sept. 4 Sir Thomas Soame (see 1635) [vice Crow] (fn. 18)
Sir Thomas Adams, Bart. (see 1639) vice Dethick
Sir Abraham Reynardson (see 1640) [vice Pack] (fn. 18)
Sir John Langham, Bart. (see 1642)
Sir James Bunce, Bart. (see 1642) vice Ireton
Sir Richard Browne, Bart. (see 1648) vice Vyner
Langham's former seat (Bishopsgate) was at this time held by E. Backwell, Soame's (Cheap) by Sir T. Alleyn (Lord Mayor), and Reynardson's (Candlewick) by T. Milner: Backwell and Milner were not disturbed; Langham only sat once (September 11) when Backwell also was present, and was discharged on September 18. Bunce also declined to resume office and was discharged on September 25. The Lord Mayor was transferred to Aldgate on September 25 in place of Crow (who had been discharged on April 3), and Soame then resumed his old seat for Cheap, having been present as well as the Lord Mayor on September 6, 18 and 20. Reynardson was removed to Pack's seat for Bassishaw on October 4, but he did not resume attendance in the Court at all after his restoration.
The names of the Aldermen (in order of seniority) between September 4 and 18, were:
Sir T. Soame Sir J. Bunce Sir J. Frederick R. Kinge
(fn. 19)T. Atkyn (fn. 19)J. Kendricke T. Milner W. Love
(fn. 19)Sir T. Adams Sir R. Browne Sir J. Robinson W. Bolton
(fn. 19)Sir A. Reynardson (fn. 19)R. Chiverton Sir A. Bateman W. Peake
Sir J. Langham Sir T. Alleyn Sir J. Lawrence Sir W. Wale
(fn. 19)J. Fowke (Lord Mayor) F. Warner E. Backwell
Sir W. Thomson F. Meynell
The seats of T. Foot, C. Pack, R. Tichborne and W. Crow, were vacant. There were thus 25 Aldermen and four vacancies, making a total of three in excess of the regular number, caused by there being two Aldermen for each of the three wards, Bishopsgate, Cheap and Candlewick. The resignation of Langham and the removals of the Lord Mayor (Alleyn) and Reynardson to other wards to fill the seats previously held by Crow and Pack reduced the existing Aldermen to 24, with two vacancies (those caused by the disqualification of Foot and Tichborne) to be filled, making the regular total of 26.

(During the suspension of the Charter.)
Judgment having been given against the City in the proceedings consequent on the Writ Quo Warranto in 1683, its Charter was forfeited, and on October 13 the King (Charles II.) issued a new commission reappointing the Lord Mayor (Sir W. Prichard) and 17 of the existing Aldermen. Eight Aldermen were ejected and their places taken by adherents of the Court. A full and singularly lucid and impartial account of the legal proceedings and of the events of the preceding three years which led to the hostile action on the part of the King is given in Dr. Sharpe's London and the Kingdom (Vol. II., pp. 472-504). (fn. 42)
The old Aldermen who were retained were:—
Sir W. Turner Ex-Lord Mayors
Sir W. Hooker
Sir R. Vyner
Sir J. Edwards
Sir J. Moore
Sir W. Prichard (Lord Mayor)
Sir H. Tulse
Sir J. Smyth
Sir R. Geffery
Sir W. Rawsterne
Sir J. Peake
Sir T. Beckford
Sir J. Chapman
Sir S. Lewis
Sir J. Raymond
Sir D. North
P. Daniel
P. Rich
Of these the Lord Mayor (Prichard), Turner, Edwards, Tulse, Smyth, Geffery, Chapman, Lewis, Raymond, Daniel and Rich were sworn on October 16, Rawsterne and North on October 18, Hooker and Moore on October 23, Beckford on October 25, Peake on October 27; Vyner did not appear to take the oath till December. 5, and never again attended a meeting of the Court of Aldermen, though he did not resign his seat until April, 1686.
The superseded Aldermen were:—
Sir T. Alleyn
Sir J. Frederick
Sir J. Lawrence
Sir R. Clayton Ex-Lord Mayors
Sir P. Ward
Sir J. Shorter
Sir T. Gold
H. Cornish
The six last-named of these were prominently identified with the Whig party, of which Sir John Lawrence was the recognised leader in the Corporation; Alleyn and Frederick, who had originally been Aldermen during the Commonwealth period, had in the earlier years of the reign generally been supporters of the Court, though they were at no time what would be called in modern political phraseology 'Whole-Hoggers,' and had more recently shown a disposition to favour the Nonconformists and Whigs. The 18 Aldermen who retained their seats were all uncompromising Tories.
The eight new Aldermen appointed to fill the places of those removed were:

two vacancies caused by the deaths of Sir J. Peake and Sir J. Shorter being unfilled. The three first-named (Sirs W. Hooker, J. Raymond and P. Daniel) had retained their seats throughout the period, having been Aldermen before the judgment on the Writ of Quo Warranto.
On October 3, 1688, the Charter was restored, and all the survivors of those who were acting as Aldermen at the time of its forfeiture (October, 1683), were reinstated automatically with their original precedence, the existing Aldermen being displaced (except the three who were in office in 1683), and their elections treated as illegal, those of them who were again elected (either at once or after an interval) reckoning their seniority from the date of such fresh election. Eight of the Aldermen of 1683 had died in the interim, viz: Sir J. Frederick, Sir R. Vyner, Sir J. Shorter, Sir T. Gold, Sir W. Rawsterne, Sir J. Peake, Sir T. Beckford, H. Cornish. The eighteen Aldermen who were thus restored to office with their former precedence were:—
wSir T. Alleyn wSir P. Ward tSir J. Chapman
wSir J. Lawrence tSir J. Moore tSir S. Lewis
tSir W. Turner tSir W. Prichard (fn. 53)tSir J. Raymond
(fn. 53)tSir W. Hooker tSir H. Tulse tSir D. North
tSir J. Edwards tSir J. Smyth (fn. 53)tSir P. Daniel
wSir R. Clayton tSir R. Geffery tSir P. Rich
Of these, Turner, Edwards and Clayton at first declined to serve again, though both Turner and Clayton at a later date resumed their seats. In filling up the eleven vacancies, the Wards elected five of the Aldermen whom the restoration of the Charter had displaced (Sir T. Kinsey, Sir W. Ashhurst, C. Lethuillier, Sir W. Gostlyn and Sir H. Edwin), and two who had served during a portion of the period of suspension (Sir S. Dashwood and Sir B. Thorowgood). Four other of the interim Aldermen (Sir J. Parsons, Sir T. Fowle, Sir T. Rawlinson and Sir C. Duncombe) returned to the Court of Aldermen later, as will be seen below.
The eight Aldermen elected in place of those who had died since their supersession in 1683 were:—
1688, Oct. 9 (10) tSir Samuel Dashwood, Vintner (see Oct., 1683) vice Beckford

Footnotes

  • 1. D.N.B. gives neither name of Ward nor date of election as Alderman, nor does it record his return for Taunton.
  • 2. . It is hardly doubtful that the ex-Alderman is identical with the Master of the Mercers' Company for the year 1656, whose name is disguised as 'Parker' in an unverified list communicated to me.
  • 3. See footnote, Vol. I., p. 343.
  • 4. . In the brief notice of John Ireton, appended to the excellent article on his brother, the wellknown Parliamentary General, the date of his death is given according to the obsolete Civil computation.
  • 5. . In Vol. I. (p. 60) I have described Ellis as a Draper, following the minute of his election as Alderman in Rep. 61, fol. 221, but inasmuch as he is described as Merchant Taylor in the record of his election as Sheriff on the same day (Common Hall Book, iii., 113), and moreover his name appears among the Masters of the latter and not among those of the former Company, it may be assumed that the latter is correct. He may have belonged to both Companies, but I know of no similar instance at that period, though there is apparently a precedent in the case of John Derby in the fifteenth century (see footnote, Vol. I., p. 330).
  • 6. Not January 8, as in Vol. I., p. 221.
  • 7. . If the identification in the text (which is only tentative) with the testator of the Will of 1674 is correct, he could not have been (as otherwise would be probable) the Edward Smith who was High Steward of Southwark (1661-83, 1690-4).
  • 8. In the minute of his discharge (Rep. 62 fol. 206) his Christian name is given as 'Matthew' in one place and 'Michael' in another.
  • 9. . His Company is not given in the record of his election.
  • 10. The spelling 'Temms' is that of his autograph, which I had not seen when Vol. I., page 222, was printed (where I have adopted the form 'Temse'). The latter is the usual spelling in the City records.
  • 11. . In this case, as in that of Temms above, I have here adopted the spelling of the autograph signature instead of the more common form found elsewhere. The date of admission is as in the text above, not as in Vol. I., p. 84.
  • 12. Not November 6 as in Vol. 1., p. 161.
  • 13. . In the D.N.B. article there is no mention of his election to the Parliament of Ireland.
  • 14. His Christian name is given as 'William' in the minute of his admission (Rep. 66, fol. 67b).
  • 15. The list of Masters of the Mercers supplied to me by an official, who declined subsequently to verify it gives 'Alderman Richard Keith, M. 1658' which can only refer to Kinge, there being no other Alderman of that time whose name could possibly be so distorted either by the original scribe or by the copyist.
  • 16. . He was not (as stated in Vol. I., pp. 40, 95, corrected at pp. 411, 414) identical with, but was the son of, the person of the same name who was elected Alderman of Castle Baynard in 1651.
  • 17. . I have already in Vol. I., p. 358, of this work referred to the grotesque anachronism of the date suggested in the original D.N.B. article as that at which Backwell vacated his Aldermanry. This is corrected in the new edition. The writer is apparently unaware that Backwell was buried in the Church of St. Mary Woolnoth, Lombard Street, at the date given above, whence the body was removed to Tyringham, October 20, 1685.
  • 18. . The succeeding paragraph explains the allocation of the vacancies in these cases.
  • 19. Ex-Lord Mayors.
  • 20. . There is a short notice of him in D.N.B. at end of article on his namesake who was one of the 'Five Members.' In Vol. I. of this work, p. 211 (corrected at p. 234) his residence (Barrington) is described as situate in Essex: the true reading is Somerset.
  • 21. . (a) He was son of (not as erroneously stated in Vol. I., pp. 162, 210, identical with) his namesake, who was Alderman of Vintry in 1650. This error was corrected at pp. 233, 234.
  • 22. . (b) There is a similar error in regard to Hussey in Vol. I., pp. 41, 209, corrected at pp. 411, 419.
  • 23. . The similarity of name, (having regard to the general disregard of orthographic uniformity in the 17th century), coupled with the coincidence of their respective Livery Companies, leads one to infer the probable identity of this personage with the Richard Tyler, Salter, who was elected Alderman of Bridge Without in 1663. I cannot, however, adduce any evidence either in support or in refutation of this suggestion, and the Clerk to the Salters' Company professed himself unable to assist me to determine the point.
  • 24. . See note 118 (p. 93).
  • 25. . The correct form of the name is as printed above. In Vol. I. (pp. 202, 337) I have adopted the form ('Charlton') which is recorded in Repertory 69, ff. 144, 150b, 152.
  • 26. . Overall (Remembrancia, p. 199) confounds him with Sir Richard Browne (Lord Mayor 1660-1). See note 98 (p. 69).
  • 27. . See Vol. I., p. 343 (footnote).
  • 28. . The absence of record of the actual date of this election is due to the destruction of the minutes in the Great Fire. There are no minutes from April 3 to July 3, 1666. Under the former date there is the heading 'Bludworth, Mayor,' followed by the words 'chartæ quæ desunt ne hic intrentur trinorum scilicet mensium (Aprilis, Maii & Junii) in horrendis ignibus perierunt' (Rep. 71, fo. 66 b). It is possible that some others whose names are lost may have been chosen between Bonfoy's discharge and Swallowe's election. The Great Fire (which presumably is meant by the 'horrendi ignes' of the memorandum) did not break out till September 2; it is somewhat strange that the three months' hiatus should come to an end at a date two months earlier, the minutes for July and August being preserved. The papers whose destruction is here noted were probably rough minutes which had never been copied into, and were not kept in the same place as, the official records, which were secured intact at the time of the fire.
  • 29. . The D.N.B. article omits Viner's resignation of his Aldermanry in 1686, speaks of Alderman 'Blackwell' (meaning 'Backwell'), and states that Sir R. Steele, who was not born till 1676, 'himself witnessed an occurrence in Viner's Mayoralty,' which was in 1674. The writer is hopelessly at sea in the chronological arrangement of the sentences referring to Viner's bankruptcy through neglecting to observe the distinction between the Civil computation of years and that now in use.
  • 30. . The D.N.B. omits the date of Moore's first election as Alderman, and makes no mention of his dismissal from office in 1687, or of his 30 years' service on the Committee of the E.I.C.; he is also said to have been President of Christ's Hospital 'in 1681,' a very inadequate representation of the fact that he held the office for 15 years. It is not the fact, as stated in D.N.B., that he had actually been 'elected Sheriff' and discharged before 1671. He had, when discharged from his Aldermanry in 1667, paid the necessary fine to ensure freedom from liability to be elected Sheriff, which fine was returned to him when he accepted the office later. His knighthood did not, as the text of the article suggests, precede his election as Sheriff. The statement that the Lord Mayor's privilege of nominating a Sheriff 'had long been in abeyance' before Moore's year of office is the exact opposite of the real facts; the City Records prove that it had been exercised every year except one since 1662; Pilkington, who is referred to in the article as Sheriff during Moore's mayoralty, was himself the nominee of Moore's predecessor in the chair.
  • 31. . The similarity of name suggests possible identity with John Melhuse, Draper, elected Alderman of Walbrook in 1652, but I think that though the orthographic variants represent the same patronymic, the individuals denoted are different—probably father and son. For the possible confusion between 'Draper' and 'Merchant Taylor,' see note 108 (p. 79).
  • 32. For the curious orthographical variations in his surname as recorded in Repertory 72, see Vol. I., p. 212.
  • 33. The name of his Ward and the date of his election, which are wanting in the original edition of D.N.B., are supplied (on my information) in the revised issue, in which the date of his death is given correctly, having in the former edition been according to the old Civil computation. An obvious misprint makes him Master of the Stationers several years after his death.
  • 34. D.N.B. article omits both the name of his Ward and the date of his election, and ignores the fact that he resigned immediately. It also misdates the Knighthood of his son, Sir William Ashhurst (afterwards Lord Mayor).
  • 35. The name is given incorrectly as 'Wardell' and 'Wardall' in Vol. I., pp. 119, 346.
  • 36. The original issue of D.N.B. (corrected on my information in the later edition) makes his Aldermanic service continuous from 1670 to 1688, ignoring his ejection in 1683 and also his eighteen years' tenure of office after his restoration.
  • 37. Ward's removal from office in 1683 and restoration in 1688 are passed over in D.N.B. article, which also ignores his Parliamentary service for Pontefract. He was not, as there stated, a Colonel of the Trained Bands during his Mayoralty, nor was the composition of the City lieutenancy subject, as the article clearly implies, to popular election. The date of his restoration to the Colonelcy of the Blue Regiment (1694) is wrongly given as 1691, although Luttrell, to whom reference is made as authority for the erroneous date, records it quite correctly. The note 'on the character and dispositions of the London Aldermen' is incorrectly referred to as 'probably supplied to James II.,' although the Gentleman's Magazine, 1769, from which it is professedly copied, expressly states that it was 'presented to His Majesty King Charles II.,' and this is confirmed by internal evidence, inasmuch as it deals with some Aldermen who died and others who resigned before the end of Charles' reign, and moreover, names Sir G. Waterman as the existing Lord Mayor, which fixes the date as 1671-2. This article strikingly exemplifies the necessity of verifying for one's self D.N.B. references instead of taking them on trust.
  • 38. The spelling above is that of the Alderman's autograph: the name is more commonly spelled with an intrusive 't,' which form is adopted by the D.N.B., by Dr. Sharpe in London and the Kingdom, and by myself in the earlier portion of Vol. I. of this work (pp. 67, 77). The D.N.B. article names only one of his Wards, omits the dates of his elections as Alderman, misdates that of his first candidature for the parliamentary representation of the city, and states that he 'laid down his gown' in 1688, whereas he served continuously from that date till his death, more than 16 years later. There is no mention of his Governorship of the Irish Society or of his Presidency of the Honourable Artillery Company. The Christian name of Sir Thomas Pilkington (himself the subject of an article in the D.N.B.) is given as 'John.' Prichard was not, as stated in D.N.B., 'head of the poll,' but third at the London parliamentary election of 1702; his candidature in 1695 is omitted, whereas that in 1698, which was not persisted in but withdrawn before the poll, is recorded.
  • 39. . In the original edition of D.N.B. Cornish's Ward is erroneously stated to have been Bassishaw. The date of the reversal of his attainder, though given with great precision in both editions, is obviously inaccurate. To any one acquainted with the rudimentary dates of English history, the passing of an 'Act of Parliament' in January, 1688-9, must appear a singular phenomenon.
  • 40. . The article in D.N.B. is accurate and adequate.
  • 41. . The D.N.B. altogether ignores North's tenure of an Aldermanry. The date of the trials of Russell and Sidney is erroneously given.
  • 42. . At the risk of appearing to be guilty of an impertinence in venturing to praise the work of Dr. Sharpe in a field which he has made peculiarly his own, I cannot let pass this opportunity of bearing testimony to the general excellence of his London and the Kingdom (3 Vols., Longmans, 1894) which is invaluable to the student of London civic annals in connexion with and as bearing on the concurrent events of our national history.
  • 43. From the period of the suspension of the Charter (1683-8) to the accession of Queen Victoria, I have indicated by the letters w (= Whig) t (= Tory) the political sympathies of the Aldermen where it has been possible to ascertain them. During those 150 years party politics played a considerable part in the history of the Corporation, whereas after the Reform Bill era they have been practically ignored.
  • 44. . Buckworth belonged to the Tory or Court party; his son (Sheriff 1704) was at a later period one of the Whig leaders in the City.
  • 45. The D.N.B. article on Duncombe in the original issue has many omissions and some errors, which are supplied and corrected in the new edition. He appears not to have been, as stated in D.N.B. on the authority of Harl. MS. 7020, Receiver of the Customs under Charles II. and James II.; that office, according to the contemporary issues of Chamberlayne's Angliæ Notitia, was held by his partner, Richard Kent.
  • 46. . The D.N.B. notice omits his tenure of the Aldermanry of Farringdon Without. His Colonelcy of the Trained Bands in 1690 was not, as would naturally be inferred from the text of the article, that of one of the six regular, but of one of the auxiliary regiments.
  • 47. Not July 22 as in Vol. I., p. 194.
  • 48. At this time the King (James II.) ejected those Tory Aldermen whose strong attachment to the Established Church prevented them from acquiescing in his policy of suspending the Test and Corporation Acts. Their places were filed by supporters of that policy, most of whom were Whigs and Dissenters. On August 2 Six Aldermen (Sir W. Turner, Sir W. Prichard, Sir J. Chapman, Sir S. Lewis, Sir S. Dashwood and Sir B. Thorowgood) were displaced: on August 4 two more (Sir J. Moore and Sir J. Smyth and on August 6 another pair (Sir H. Tulse and Sir R. Geffery) making ten in all.
  • 49. . The writer of the original article in D.N.B. copied a mistake of Luttrell, who wrongly makes Edwin on of the Nonconformist Aldermen ejected from the Colonelcies of the Trained Bands in 1690. The Court Books of the Commission of Lieutenancy show that Edwin's names has been accidentally substituted by Luttrell for that of Sir T. Lane. In the revised version of the D.N.B. an attempt at correction has resulted in hopeless confusion, the Editor failing to realise the point that Edwin never served as a Colonel of the Trained Bands. The writer of the article adds a blunder of his own to Luttrell's in saying that five other Colonels were ejected, only five in all having been removed, Sir T. Stampe retaining his place. Though Edwin was, as stated in D.N.B., gazetted Sheriff of Glamorganshire in January, 1689, he did not serve that office, his successor being appointed a week later; this fact D.N.B has omitted to notice.
  • 50. . The article in D.N.B. does not give the reason (viz., the restoration of the Charter) for Kiffin's vacation of his post as Alderman; it is incorrect in the name of his immediate successor and in the date of Edwin's election. The name of the Lord Mayor who heard the charge of heretical preaching brought against him in 1655 is wrongly given in the old edition, but corrected in the new issue. The article states that Kiffin was apprenticed to the celebrated John Lilburne, then a brewer, in 1629, and left him in 1631, whereas Lilburne, who in 1638 describes himself as then in his 22nd year, according to the D.N.B. itself was apprenticed to a cloth merchant till 1636. The D.N.B. reckons the period between August and October, 1687 (the dates of his appointment as Alderman and his taking the oaths), as four months.
  • 51. . In the D.N.B. article on his father (H. Ashhurst) in which Sir William is referred to, his knighthood is misdated.
  • 52. At pp. 304, 305, 319, 320 of Vol. I. I have erroneously referred to ex-Alderman G. Page as M.P. for Shoreham in three of the four parliaments between 1708 and 1722. I had confounded him with his son (created a Baronet by George J.): the Alderman never sat in Parliament.
  • 53. Those marked thus had not been removed, but had sat continuously since their original elections.
  • 54. . In the original D.N.B. article, Fleet's election as Sheriff is wrongly made to precede that as Alderman, and only one (not the first) of his eight elections to the chair of the East India Company is recorded. Although he was eight times a parliamentary candidate for the City the D.N.B. gives no indication of his politics. His Colonelcy of a Regiment of Trained Bands, Presidency of the Honourable Artillery Company and Mastership of two Livery Companies are all ignored.
  • 55. . The D.N.B. article gives a meagre and uninforming account of Houblon's being 'chosen by the House of Lords one of the Commissioners of the Accounts' in 1704, omitting the most important point. The Commons, in which there was then a Tory majority, named certain Commissioners, and the House of Lords, in which the Whigs were then predominant, struck out one of the names and inserted that of Houblon as well as those of two additional Commissioners (both Whigs), Sir W. Scawen and F. Eyles, the latter of whom was afterwards an Alderman of London. The Commons took exception to this as infringing their privileges with regard to Money Bills; the Lords adhered to their amendment and the Bill consequently dropped. The case, which is fully recorded by Luttrell (the authority quoted in D.N.B.), is interesting as showing that amendments to money bills by the House of Lords have not been confined to periods when the Tories dominated it.
  • 56. . The D.N.B. is wrong in stating that Papillon 'terminated his connection with the old [East India] Company in 1682'; he served on its Committee for the year 1682-3. It is only technically accurate to say that he was returned for Dover in 1672-3; there was a double return then, and he did not get the seat till the following year.
  • 57. Child was a Whig when elected Alderman, but afterwards joined the Tories. The D.N.B. article records his election as Colonel of one of the regiments of Trained Bands in 1694, but omits the fact that he then declined to serve.
  • 58. . The article on Wildman in D.N.B. gives neither his Ward nor his date of election as Alderman; it also omits his return for Great Bedwin in 1681 and wrongly gives Wootton Bassett as his constituency in 1689, confounding him with his son.
  • 59. Levett, though supported by the Tories at the City Election of November, 1701 (as stated in Vol. I., page 278), generally voted with the Whigs both before and after that date.
  • 60. . The name of Sir T. Cooke, which is conspicuous by its absence from the D.N.B., ought certainly to have been included. It is familiar to readers of Macaulay as that of the champion of the East India Company, temp. William III.
  • 61. . The D.N.B. gives two different dates for his death—the ('1701') presumably a misprint.
  • 62. . The suggestion in D.N.B. that Abney owed his knighthood, which was conferred several months before the Bank of England came into existence, to his connexion with that institution, is quite without foundation. Every Sheriff of London in William III.'s reign who was not already a knight, received knighthood soon after assuming office; accordingly Abney's knighthood was conferred in the ordinary course.
  • 63. . The interval between Hedges' elections as Sheriff and Alderman was 10 days, not 'a month' as stated in D.N.B.
  • 64. . The spelling 'Bedingfeld' is in accordance with the Alderman's autograph. It usually appears in print as 'Bedingfield.'
