Ordinance by Richard Whitingtone, the Mayor, and the
Aldermen, with the assent of the Commons, enforcing by
penalties the ordinance made during the Mayoralty of William
Staundon, anno 9 Henry IV., touching vessels used by brewers
being first marked by the Chamberlain's deputy to show their
capacity. (fn. 3)
Also, whereas it had been formerly established that no
brewer, hosteler, huckster, cook, or piebaker, should sell a
gallon of best beer within their houses for more than 2 pence
by marked measure, and outside their houses for more than
1½d., many brewers, &c., nevertheless sell a gallon of best
beer for 3 pence, 4 pence, and 5 pence, and by "hanaps," and
not by the gallon, "potel," or quart duly sealed, and, further,
they daily make and sell outside their houses, for 1½d.,
an inferior beer which they sell within their houses for
2 pence, contrary to the ordinance aforesaid-it was therefore
ordained by the said Mayor and Aldermen in this present
Common Council that those found acting contrary to the said
ordinance shall forfeit their beer and vessels and be committed
to prison, the informer getting half of the forfeiture.
It was also ordained that this ordinance might be amended
by the Mayor and Aldermen in time to come, if it proved to
be too rigorous.
The above ordinance was passed by the Mayor and Aldermen, and at the instance of all persons using the mistery of
Brewers within the City and suburbs, whose names were
submitted to the Court on a roll of paper by the Masters,
Wardens, and other good folk of the Mistery.

Peticio Braciator' por recta Maiori et Alder mannis.
18 Jan., 7 Henry V. [A.D. 1419-20], petition to Richard
Whitingtone, the Mayor, and the Aldermen, by all persons
using the mistery of Brewers in the City praying them to amend
the good ordinance made in the time of John Wodecok, (fn. 4) to the
following effect :—
(1) That all "Coupers" be charged and sworn to examine
all barrels and kilderkins of brewers and other customers, and
to break up those that they find to be false, and to mark those
that are true with their own marks entered and enrolled before
the Mayor and Aldermen; and, further, that they be charged
not to mark any barrel containing less than 30 gallons, or any
kilderkin of less than 15 gallons.
(2) That brewers may be allowed to sell their ale retail in
small measures, viz., gallons, "potels," and quarts, at 2 pence a
gallon, as well within their houses as without.
(3) That in order that such measures should be just, the
Masters and Wardens of the said Mistery be sworn before the
Mayor and Aldermen to see that good and clear ale be sold by
just measure at the price fixed yearly by the Mayor, or at a
reasonable price at their discretion, and, further, that the
said Masters present defaulters to the Chamberlain, and be
punished at the discretion of the Mayor and Aldermen if they
show favour or hate to any one, or be negligent in their duties.
Thereupon it was ordained that the ordinance made in the
time of John Wodecok's Mayoralty should continue provisionally in force until Easter next, and then be further considered.
And as touching the first article of the petition, the same is
agreed to on condition that Brewers incur the same penalties as
"Coupers" if found using vessels that are not marked, and
that they make a rebate for the dregs (les feces) of two gallons
on a barrel and one gallon on a kilderkin, more or less, and
incur the same penalty as is prescribed by the ordinance of
William Staundone made anno 9 Henry IV., and lately con
firmed by the last Common Council.
And as to the second article, to the effect that Brewers may
sell by retail a gallon of their best ale, both within and without
their houses, by the gallon, "potel," and quart at 2 pence the
gallon, the Court refuses its consent, inasmuch as the selling
of the best ale outside their houses by retail at 2 pence the
gallon would be contrary to the order of the last Common
Council, for they must sell their best ale, wholesale or retail,
outside their houses at 1½d. the gallon The Court, however,
was willing to modify the penalty imposed at the said Common
Council in the following manner, viz., that instead of imprisonment and forfeiture of vessel and value of the ale at every
default, the defaulter shall be amerced at the discretion of the
Mayor and Aldermen, and this modification is granted on
condition that brewers, hostelers, cooks, and piebakers sell
their ale by full measure in sealed gallons, "potels," and quarts,
and not by "hanaps," and do not charge more than 1½d. a
gallon for their best ale (the same being sold at 2 pence a
gallon within their houses) to any one wishing to have more
than a gallon.
And as to the third article, touching the right of search, &c.,
by the Masters and Wardens, the said Mayor and Aldermen
give their consent.

kilderkin unless it contain 15 gallons, under penalty of paying
40s. for the use of the Commonalty, every brewer being
liable to the same penalty if he sold ale in vessels that
