Footnotes

1 See note supra, p. 65.
2 Yarmouth.
3 More often spelt "Sinethenestrate" or "Sivethenestrate," now Seething Lane.
4 Gutter Lane.
5 Gave the name to the Ward of Faringdon or Farndone, formerly called the Ward of Ludgate and Newgate, the aldermanry of which was released to him by John, son of Ralph le Fevre, by deed enrolled in 1281-2—Hust. Roll 13 (57).
6 Frequently miscalled son of William de Farndone. It is more than probable that he is identical with Nicholas, son of Ralph le Fevre, to whom William de Farndone is stated by Antony Munday to have granted the aldermanry, anno 21 Edward I., although no record of such a deed is to be found in these Rolls; and that on this account, no less than because he also married Isabella, the daughter of William de Farndone, as will be seen later on, he took the name of Farndone (Stow's 'Survey,' Strype's ed., 1720, book iii. p. 124). His will is dated and enrolled in the year 1334 (and not 1361, as stated by Stow); and he appears to have been buried before the altar of S. Dunstan in the new work of S. Paul's Cathedral, and not in S. Peter's Church in Cheap, as stated by the same chronicler (Hist. MSS. Commission, Ninth Report, p. 3b).
7 Beater of cloths, or clothworker.

9 Sanes (?), for Staines, co. Middlesex.
10 Staining Lane.
11 Almariolum, or cupboard.
