Appendix III.

Aldermen who have been Chamberlains of London.

(a) King's Chamberlains.

Gregory de Rokesle 1275–1278 [Alderman c1265–1291].
Adam de Rokesle 1299–1301 [" 1293–1308].
William Trent 1301–1307 [" 1309–1316].
Stephen de Abyndon 1316–1325 [" 1312–1321].
(Benedict de Folesham 1325–1326) [" 1327–1338].
(Richard de la Pole 1327–1338) [" 1330–1340].

The first four held the offices of King's Butler. Chamberlain and Coroner. The two last-named are only noticed as King's Butler and Coroner, and I doubt if the title of King's Chamberlain was retained after Abyndon's time.
