||Simon Corp 1302 LBB 117, 1329 Will, S. de Corp 1308 LBC 100 (warden
of Boston Fair), 1309 LBD 97 (pepperer of Soper Lane). He had tenements in
St. Antholin and in Boston (Li). He was a sheriff 1310-11 and alderman of
Cordw 1313-21. An earlier bearer of the surname was Robert Corp LBA 1
(corrector of wine). Bardsley mentions Stephen de Corp 1275 RH (Li).
- Corp might be ON korpr 'raven', a by-name as in Corpusty Nf, while de
Corp might be a name of foreign origin.
||Hugh de Gartone 1309-10 LBD 217 (mercer), 1327 Will. He was a
sheriff 1313-14 and alderman of ColemSt 1319-27. He was apparently
connected with William de Garton senior (1298 LBB 83, 1312 ib. 52), since
he remembered the widow of William in his will. - Garton YE.

the Commonalty), J. de la Chaumbre 1307 LBC 179 (clerk of sheriff), J.
de la Chambre 1327 Will (resident in Holy Trinity the Less). He acted as
pleader in various suits for the Commonalty and was alderman of Cand from
1314 till 1319-20. The surname will allude to his official position at the
Chamber of the Guildhall.
||Juliana Hauteyn, wife of Thomas Romeyn 1303-4 CW 161. She was
dead before 1332 (CW 385). On Thomas Romeyn see 1292 S [Cordw 28].

169. - Cf. 1292 S [CripI 28].

||Ralph le Balauncer 1308 LBB 204 (pepperer), 1316 Mem 120 (pepperer
of Soper Lane), 1320 Will (apparently of St. Mary le Bow). He was a sheriff
1316-17. The surname means 'weigher, keeper of the Balance', but there is
no information of Ralph having held that office. He may be identical with
Ralph de Arraz, to whom the Small Beam (or Balance) was delivered in 1299
-1300 (LBC 56) and who was a juror in St. Antholin in 1311 (LBD 190).

e.g. Gosses Fm in W. Hoathly Sx or The Gorse in Sanderstead Sr.

Marescal de Straham, oriundus de Bernyngham, citizen of London, residing
in the parish of St. John upon Walbrok 1327 Will. Cf. John le Mareshal
1292 S [Walbr 53]. John junior was very likely an apprentice of John senior
and adopted his double surname (le Marescal de Straham), though he came
from Barningham (Nf or Sf). He may have been a skinner. St. John Walbrook is partly in Cordw.
Copham must be the name of a lost place.
||Maud le Bracer 1332 S [Cordw, 2s.] will be his widow. - OF braceor
