Woodmongers' Company

First referred to in 1375, this Company obtained its charter in 1605. Accused of corrupt charges for fuel, a 14 October 1667 bill to annul its charter provoked its surrender on 5 December 1667. (L&M)

Record of the Worshipful Company of Woodmongers, comprising copy order of the court authorising Thomas Wright to occupy a carroom in his possession. This item was transferred to Guildhall Library Manuscripts Section in 1919, and was catalogued soon after by a member of Guildhall Library staff. The Manuscripts Section merged with London Metropolitan Archives in 2008. No other records of this company are known to survive, apart from a charter, ordinance and memorandum book, 17th-18th centuries, at the Bodleian Library (Ms. Rawlinson D725B). .
