July 7th, 1607.
Two Earls have invited the King. Committees to invite the
Prince, and the Queen's Lord Chamberlain to invite her
Albeit the Company are informed by Mr. Warden Wright
that the Right Honble. the Earl of Suffolk, Lord Chamberlain,
and the Right Honble. the Earle of Salisbury, the Kinge's principall Secretarie, oute of theire honourable love to this Companie
have invited the King's moste excellent Majtie. to our Ffeast, so
as the Company shall not need to trouble his Majestie any
further, yet it is both their honourable advice and also thought
convenient that some of the chief of the Company should ride
to non such to the Prince's Court to invite his Highness, whereupon Mr. Baron Sotherton, Sir William Craven, Mr. Alderman
Elwes, and Mr. Alderman Albany, have undertaken to perform
that service, and Sir John Swynnerton and Mr. Alderman
Elwes have also promised to invite all the Lords that are
resident about London. And Mr. Warden Wright hath also
promised to desire the Lord Chamberlain to the Queene to invite
her Majestie and such honourable Ladies as usually attend her
July 9th, 1607.
A Resolution not to invite either the Lord Mayor or any of the
Aldermen that are not free of our Company.
This Courte was specially provided to consider and advyse
whether it were fitt and convenient to invite the Lord Mayor
and all the Aldermen and their Ladies to the Elec[i]on dynner
this yeare, yea, or no, and upon propounding thereof severall
delyvered their conceite and opynions, some holdinge opinion
that it would be an hono[m]r and grace to the Company to see soe
many sitt togeather in their Scarlet Robes: other being of
opynion that it would much derogate from the private Companie who shoulde be at the whole charge, and soe make it
seeme as an entertainment done at the charge of the whole
Cytty: and some houlding opynion that if wee preferred my
Lord Maior and Aldermen to a principal Table it woulde offend
the nobles and honourable gentlemen who would reckon my
Lord Maior in the presence of the King, to be but as an ordinary
Knight Quia in proesentia Majoris cessat potestas minoris: others
houlding it the duty of us citizens to have a very special care
to give satisfac[i]on and preferr the Governours of the Cytty:
and some houlding opynion, that my Lord Maior for the present
yere being a clothworker, (fn. 4) and having procured to grace that
Company and to cause his Majesties name to be entered as one
of that Society, he woulde doe his endeavo[m]r to crosse our Companie of that honour which wee understand the Prince's Highness meaneth to conferr upon our Company; and many other
reasons and opynions were delyv'red: after which it was put to
scrutiny and by moste voices agreed, that neither my Lord
Maior nor any of the Aldermen (saving such as be of our Company) shoulde be invyted at this tyme, hoping that none of
them shall have any just cause to except against the Companies
July 15th, 1607.
Notwithstanding Mr. Recorder's persuasion to invite ye Lord
Mayor and Aldermen, yet it is not thought fitt.
To this Court resorted Mr. Recorder of London, and did use
many perswasive speeches to move the Company to invite the
Right Honble. Lord Maior and the Right Worll. the Aldermen
his Brethren to dyne at the Hall upon the morrowe nexte
ensuinge, upon whose ernest moc[i]on it was estsones put to
question and scruteny whether they should be invited or no,
but the major parte remembering how the same was debated
at the laste Courte, doe stand constant in theire former resolution. And soe by scruteny yt was agreed that they should not
be invyted at this tyme. And thereupon the Companie praied
Mr. Recorder to conceave well of their resoluc[i]on, and to informe
my Lord Maior and Aldermen that they feared that the company of noblemen and ladies woulde be so greate that they
could not possibly give his Lordshipp and worshipps that entertaynement as would be fitt for Citizens to give to theire Magistrates, which was the cause they forebore to invite them at this
The Election of Master and Wardens this year, the day before
And forasmuch as there would be no tyme spared this yere
for the Elec[i]on of Master and Wardens upon the morning before
the ffeast as in former yeares it hath been used, therefore this
Court was specially called for the Elec[i]on of a new Master and
Wardens, and the rather because such as shalbe elected may be
enjoyned not to be absent the next daye at the publicac[i]on of
th' Elec[i]on: and accordinge to usual manner and forme by
scrutiny and prick, the persons hereafter named were elected
for Mr. and Wardens to rule and governe the state of the said
societie for one yere nexte ensuing (viz.), Mr. John Johnson, for
Master or Governor, Mr. Thomas Owen, for head or Mr. Warden,
Mr. Richard Scales, for second Warden, Mr. John Wooller, for
third or Upper Renter Warden, and Mr. Randolph Woolley,
for fourth or youngest Renter Warden. Which said persons
had pecial charge to make their appearance the next day,
but thes Elec[i]on was kept secrett until it was openly published the nexte daye at Dynner as hereafter at large shall be

July 16th, 1607.
Publication of the Election. Sermon at St. Helen's on account
of the Plague. Lord Mayor and Aldermen. A Speech to
ye King. Music. Ship. King dined in the King's Chamber.
The Prince dined in the Hall. Knights, Aldermen and
Masters carried the service. Three brace of Bucks sent by
the Prince. The Master and Wardens present the King
with a purse. A Roll delivered to his Majestie. The
King's consent that the Prince should be free. A present
delivered to the Prince. The Prince's Speech.
The Company having made their Election of Master and
Wardens in such manner as at the laste Courte houlden yesterday, the Companie made great haste to Church to the Sermon
which this yeare was in the Parish of St. Helen, by reason that
a howse over against our Church, and some other howses in the
Parish were visited with the Plague, which was used by some
that would willingly have kepte the King and Prince from our
Hall, as a very speciall motive to diswade his Majestie from
coming. And the said Sermon was preached by Mr. Doctor
Buckeridge, President of St. John Baptist Colledge in Oxon,
who having due regard to the tyme and occasion began very
early, and had fynished in a very convenient tyme, soe as the
Companie came to the Hall to see all things in Order and give
Entertainment, and to attend his Majties. comyng. And it is to
be remembered that the Lord Maior and Aldermen (albeit they
were not invited and some of them discontented therewith)
came all to the Hall in their Scarlett, and there staid untill his
Majties. comyng, and then the Lord Maior and the Master of our
Company and some of the Aldermen went to the Gate nexte
the streete and the Lord Maior delivered up his sword to the
King, and the Master of the Companie did welcome his Majtie.
and attended his Majtie. up into the Hall. And at the upper end
of the Hall there was sett a Chayre of State where his Majtie. satt
and viewed the Hall, and a very proper Child, well spoken, being
clothed like an angell of gladness with a Taper of Ffrankincense
burning in his hand, delivered a short speech contayning eighteen
(xviii) verses, devised by Mr. Ben. Johnson the Poet, which pleased
his Majtie. marvelously well, And upon either side of the Hall in the
Windowe neere the upper end were Gallories or Seates made for
Musique, in either of which were seaven singular choice musicions
playing on their Lutes; and in the shipp which did hang aloft
in the Hall three rare men and very skilful who sung to his
Majtie. And over the skreene, cornets and loud musique wherein
it is to be remembered that the multitude and noyse was so
greate that the lutes nor songs coulde hardly be heard or
understoode. And then his Majtie. went up into the King's
chamber, where he dined alone at a table which was provided
only for his Majtie. and the Queene (but the Queene came not),
in which chamber was placed a very rich paier of Organs,
whereupon Mr. John Bull, Doctor of Musique, and a Brother of
this Company, did play during all the dynner tyme. And
Mr. Nathanael Gyles, Master of the Children of the Kyng's
Chapell, together with divers singing men and children of the
said Chappell, did sing melodious songs at the said dynner.
And be it also remembered that the Prince did dine in the
greate Hall, and that the long table at the upper end of the
Hall was taken away and three tables distinct one from another
placed in the room thereof (viz.), one table in the middle where
the Prince sate alone in state, and the tables on either side were
wholly furnished with Ambassadors and Noblemen. And the
service to the King and Prince for the first course was carried
up by the Knights, Aldermen, Masters, Assistants and Lyvery,
which were of the Companie, the Lyvery having their Hoods
upon their shoulders, the service being rich and bountifull, as by
the charge will appear. Unto which dinner the Prince sent
three brace of Bucks, and Sir Thomas Chaloner did, by l're
written by his Highness commaundment, signifie that his
Highness with his own hand placed the woodman to kill them.
And when the King's most excellent Majesty had dyned and
withdrawn himself into his inner chamber, the Master and the
fower Wardens, Mr. Baron Sotherton and the Aldermen of the
Companie, resorted unto his Majestie, and Mr. Recorder of
London being there present did in the name of the whole
Company most humbly thank his Majtie. that it had pleased him
to grace the Company with his presence that day. And the
Master of the Company did present his Majtie. with a faier purse
wherein was one hundreth pounds in gould. And Richard
Langley the Com[m]on Clerk of the Company did moast humbly
deliver unto his Majtie. a Roll in Vellum which he had collected
out of the ancient bookes and records of the Companie. (fn. 6)

manner went with their Garlands on their heads to Publish the

into the little Lobby out of whiche there was a faier windowe
made on purpose for his Majtie. to looke into the Hall, and there
his Majtie. observed the whole manner of the ceremonie: And it

Garland, and to put the same upon his owne head, whereat the
King's Majtie. did very harteley laugh; and soe the Old Master
and Wardens proceeded to the publicac[i]on of the Elecc[i]on of the

Committee's to join with the Stewards who conducted the late
Mr. Thomas Juxon and Mr. Richd. Wright are entreated to
joyne with the Stewards for the satisfaction of such as have done
service, or bene any wise ymployed for the entertayning of the
King and Prince, or for any other paynes concerning the same.
There was this day taken out of the Tresory the sum of
three hundred pounds which was delivered to our Master to be
employed towards the charges expended for the Entertainment
of the King and the Prince.
At this Court the Company accepted Mr. John Bull, Doctor
of Musique and a Brother of this Companie (fn. 12) into the Clothing
and Liverye of the Companie. Also they have accepted and
taken Mr. Nathanael Gyles who hath his grace to be Doctor of
Musique, and is Master of the Children of the King's Chappell
into the Freedom of this Society, and also into the Clothing
and Livery of the same. And it is ordered that they shalbe
placed in the Lyvery next unto the Assistants. And note that
the Lyvery Hoods were put upon their shoulders but neither of
them sworne. And the Company are contented to shewe this
favor unto them for their paynes when the King and Prince
dyned at our Hall, and their love and kindness in bestowing the
musique which was performed by them, their associates and
children in the King's chamber gratis, whereas the musicians in
the greate Hall exacted unreasonable somes of the Company
for the same. The Companie therefore meane that this calling
of Mr. Doctor Bull and Mr. Nathanael Gyles into the Livery
shall not be any burthen or charge unto them further than shall
stand with their own good likinge.
Two Gentlemen from the Ambassadors.
Two of the Gentlemen attendant upon the Ambassadors of
the Lords of the States of the united provinces of the Lowe
Countries, with a certen short request in the Ffrench tongue,
purporting that whereas upon the motion of the Prince, the
Company had done them the honor to take and to adopt them
in their Company, and that the said Ambassadors had accepted
that honor, and therefore they desired the Master of the Com-
panie to inregister their names, and of the inregistering to
graunt them an authentic act for witness of the premises. It is
therefore ordered that their request be graunted and that the
common Clerk shall prepare ready engrossed a writing to passe
the common Seale of the Companie, to witness the same according to their request.

The Companie falling into considerac[i]on and reckoning of
theire greate Charges in the Entertaining of the King and
Prince, amounting to above 1,000l., being all disbursed out of
the common Stock of the Companie, doe therefore desire to

(that he beinge allowed the usual allowance to other Masters
for his Quarter dinners and also his Wardens 30l., and the
Brotherhood money) that then he will bestowe towardes the
said chardges the sum of one hundred and forty pounds, the
which sum (albeit they hold it not so much as they expected)
the Companie have accepted, upon hope that Mr. Swynnerton
will be a good Member and Benefactor to our Company.
