THE GOLDEN
FISHING.
Or,
Honour of Fiſhmongers.


I Finde it faithfully recorded in Au-
thors of reuerend Antiquity, that
when Godfrey, Duke of Boloigne
(beeing choſen Generall of the
Chriſtian Army, for the freedome
and deliuerance of Ieruſalem from
Saladine, and al his other heathen miſcreants;) Euery
Chriſtian Kingdome did ayde him with their beſt
aſſiſtance: because it was a buſineſſe to Gods high
honour, and generall comfort of poore diſtreſſed
Chriſtians. As from all other Kingdomes, ſo from
England (among other bands of worthy men) went
the Merchants (trading in fiſh, oyle, flaxe, ſilkes and
other commodities) moſt frequently then termed
Fiſhmongers, and the Goldſmithes, then in a late be-
gun league of loue and amity, by many friendly
helpes and furtherances each to other, in diuers
dangerous aduentures, as well on the Seas, as the
land, no men being more forward in thoſe affaires,
and in thoſe times then they.

After

THE GOLDEN

After the moſt glorious victory obtained againſt
the Pagans, & Ieruſalem regained, they ioined toge-
ther in as glorious an action, of helping to build the
ruined Wall againe, from the Water-gate of com-
fort, to the Sheepe-gate of innocencie, or holineſſe.
And ſo much the rather, becauſe there was then
much neceſsity of their paines and endeuour, not
only (by Fiſhing and Shipping) to ſupply the daily
wants of the Souldiours: but also for bringing Gold
and Siluer thither, for beautifying Gods City and
Temple.
And as this league of loue and fellowſhip began
vpon ſo good an occaſion: So they continued, and
declared it in Englands Ieruſalem, our famous Me-
tropolis London, building the Wall and two North
Gates therein, Moore-gate, and Cripleſ-gate, as yet
their Armes and Memories on them do ſufficiently
teſtifie. The one performed by Thomas Faulconer,
Fishmonger, and the other by William Shaw1 Gold-
ſmith
.
Moreouer, Fiſh and Oyle, as well as Golde, Spi-
ces, Silkes, &c. were firſt brought in by thoſe fore-
named Merchants: That the golden Lampe might
not want holy and precious oyle, nor rich and orient
Pearles (firſt found in ſhelles by painfull and indu-
ſtrious Fiſhermen) faile to be ſet in Iewels & Rings
of Gold, as beeing the pureſt mettall that the earth
can affoord. And hereupon, honourable Antiqui-
ty thought meete, to beſtow ſuch armory on them,
as (for euer) might continue their brotherly affec-
tion. Firſt, Peters keies, he being called from the

beare in their Enſignes of Armes, not ſuperſtiti-
ouſly any way, but to declare an earneſt zeale, of
entring into heauens Kingdome. Next, Dauids Cup
of sauing health, which the Gold-Smiths alſo beare
in their Banners. So much briefly, in approuing
their long continued loue and amity.

The Reaſon of our preſent Shewe.

TIme hauing turned his yearely Glaſſe, for e-
lection of a Magiſtrate, a Brother of the Fiſh-
mougers
Societie
, comming (by right of
place, and general Sufferages of the Citizens) to the
high dignitie of Lord Maior of this Citie for the
yeere enſuing: our deuices for that ſolemne and Io-
uiall day, were and are accordingly proportioned,
by the diſcreete and well aduiſed iudgement of the
Gentlemen, thereto choſen and deputed, in man
ner and forme as followeth.
Firſt therefore, because Fiſhing is the abſolute
Embleme of our preſent intendement, and Fiſh-
mongers
, hauing beene ſuch worthy Merchants in
thoſe reuerend and authentique times: leauing
their matter of Commerce and Merchandiſe, and
ayming at their true Hierogliphical impreſſe for the
dayes intended honour, thus we marſhall the order
of proceeding.
Our firſt deuice that vſhers and leades the way,
is a very goodly and beautifull fiſhing Buſſe, called;
the Fiſhmongers Eſperanza, or Hope of London: be-
ing in her true old ſhape, forme and proportion, yet
B
diſpen-

THE GOLDEN

diſpensed withall in ſome beautie, for the dayes ho-
nour. It may paſſe (by generall ſufferance) for the
ſame fiſhing Buſſe, wherein S. Peter sate mending
his Nets, when his beſt Maſter called him from
that humble and lowly condition, and made him a
Fiſher of men.2 If not ſo; take her for one of thoſe fiſh-
ing Buſſes, which not only enricheth our kingdome
with all variety of fiſh the Sea can yeelde: but hel
peth alſo (in that kind) all other lands. Fiſhermen,
in this fiſhing Buſſe are ſeriously at labour, draw-
ing vp their Nets, laden with liuing fiſh, and beſtow
ing them bountifully among the people.
Next followeth a crowned Dolphin, alluding ſom
way to the Lord Maiors coate of Armes, but more
properly to the Companies, and therefore may
ſerue indifferently for both. But becauſe it is a Fiſh
inclined much (by nature) to Muſique: Arion, a fa-
mous Muſicion and Poet, rideth on his backe, being
ſaued ſo from death, when Robbers and Pirates on
the Seas, would maliciouſly haue drowned him.
Then commeth the King of Moores, gallantly
mounted on a golden Leopard, he hurling gold and
ſiluer euery way about him. Before, on either ſide,
and behinde him, ride fixe other his tributarie
Kings on horſe-backe, gorgeously attired in faire
guilt Armours, and apt furniutre thereto belonging.
They carry Ingots of golde and ſiluer, and each one
his dart, and in this order they attend on him: ſhew-
ing thereby, that the Fiſhmongers are not vnmind-
full of their combined brethren, the worthy Com
pany of Golde-Smithes
, in this ſolemne day of tri
umph.
We

FISHING.

We next preſent a ſingular Embleme, correſpon-
ding with the Creaſt and Cognizance of the Lord
Maior, and bearing an eſpeciall Morality beſide.
A Leman tree,3 in full and ample forme, richly laden
with the fruite and flowers it beareth. Neere to the
ſtocke or roote thereof, a goodly Pellicane hath
built her neſt, with all her tender brood about her.
And becauſe her loue and care (according to the o-
pinion of Ariſtotle, Plinie, Geſner, and diuers other
good writers) makes her extraordinarily iealous of
them, as neuer daring to be abſent from them (the
ſuſtenance ſhe receiueth from the male Bird, being
inſufficient for their nouriſhing:) with her beake ſhe
launceth her breſt, and ſo ſupplieth that want with
her owne bloud. Our cited Authors variouſly af-
firme, that this loue and cheriſhing of them laſteth
the ſpace of a whole yeare, by which time, they be-
come ſtrong, and able for flight; and then, though
they ſuruiue, the Damme dyeth. An excellent type
of gouernment in a Magiſtrate, who, at his meere
entrance into his yeares Office, becommeth a nur-
ſing father of the Family: which, though hee bred
not, yet, by his beſt endeuour, hee muſt labour to
bring vp.
If his loue and delight be ſuch to the Common-
wealth, as that of the Pellican to her young ones, by
broken ſleeps, daily and nightly cares, that the very
leſt harm should not happē to his charge: then doth
he iuſtly anſwere to our Embleme; and, as of her,
ſo of him, it may well be ſayd, his breſt and bowels
of true zeale and affection, are alwaies open, to feed
and cheriſh them (euen with his beſt endeuor and
B2
dili-

THE GOLDEN

diligence) to the expiration of his yeare. And
then, though the maine Authoritie of Gouerne-
ment (in him) may be ſayd to dye: yet it ſuruiueth in
other Pellicans of the ſame brood, and ſo it reacheth
to them in the ſame manner. And becauſe the
Leman Tree (by the affirmation of Iulius Solinus
Polyhiſtor
, Dioſcorides, Pomponius Mela, Petrus
Mexius
and Antonius Verdierus) both in fruite,
flowers, rinde, pith, and iuyce, are admirable pre-
ſeruers of the ſences in man, reſtoring, comforting
and relieuing any the leaſt decay in them: wee ſea-
ted the fiue Sences about the Tree, in their beſt and
liueliest repreſentations, as fitly iumping with our
Morall methode.
Our next deuice, before it be marſhalled in due
ranke and order, is a goodly Bower, ſhaped in
forme of a flowrie Arbour, and adorned with all
the Scutchions of Armes of ſo many worthy men,
as haue beene Lord Maiors of the Fiſhmongers
Company
, and each mans name truely ſet downe
on them. It is appointed firſt to ſtand in Paules
Church-yard
: And at ſuch a place as is thoght moſt
conuenient. In this Bower is a faire Tombe, where
on, in Armour lyeth the imaginary body of Sir
William Walworth
, ſometime twiſe Lord Maior of
London, and a famous Brother of the Fiſhmongers
Company
. The reaſon of this conceit, aimeth at
that tempeſtuous and troubleſome time of King
Richard the Second
, and the fourth yeare of his
Raigne, whoſe life, Crowne and Dignitie (next vn-
der Gods omnipotent power) were manfully defen-
ded and preſerued, by that worthy man Walworth.
Suppoſe

FISHING.

Suppoſe his Marble Statue (after the manner of
Knightly buriall) to lye vpon the Tombe, and both
it and the Bower to be worthily attended, by thoſe
fiue Knights in Armour, and mounted on Horſe-
backe, that were Knighted with Sir William in the
field, after he had ſlaine the proud inſulting Rebell,
Captaine and ring-leader to all the reſt. Sixe
Trumpetters well mounted and appointed, with
Trumpet banners of the Companies Armes, and a
gallant guard of Halberdiers, being 24. in number,
with watchet ſilke Coats, hauing the Fiſhmongers
Armes on the breſt, Sir William Walworths on the
backe, and the Citties on the left arme, white Hats
and Feathers, and goodly Halbards in their hands:
theſe likewiſe haue their rancke and place neere to
the Tombe and Bower. Londons Genius, a comely
Youth, attired in the ſhape of an Angell, with a
golden Crowne on his head, golden Wings at his
backe, bearing a golden Wand in his hand, ſits
mounted on Horſebacke by the Bower; with an
Officer at Armes, bearing the Rebels head on Wal-
worth
s
Dagger. So ſoone as the Lord Maior is
come neere, and way made for his better attention:
the Genius ſpeaketh, the Trumpets ſound their ſeue-
rall Surden flouriſhes, Walworth ariſeth, and is con-
uaid on Horſebacke from the Bower, as you may
better perceiue by the ſpeeches apted for the pur-
poſe. The Bower and Tombe are likewiſe borne
along before him, for his more conuenient returne
to reſt againe.
Wee come now to our laſt inuention in this our
Triumphall Progreſſe, memorizing Londons great
B3
day

THE GOLDEN

day of deliuerance, and the Fiſhmongers Fame for
euer, in Anno 1381. and on Corpus Christi day
in West Smithfield, where the like number of Re-
bels (as then) were neuer aſſembled. Leauing the
matter, a caſe of deſperate Rebellion; the manner,
a moſt baſe and barbarous kinde of proceeding, to
the great diſturbance of the King and State, and
vnauoydable ruine of this Cittie, but for the good
Angell of defence then guarding it, and the worthy
Lord Maior made the ſecond inſtrument: let vs i-
magine (though not in the magnificent forme as
then it was done, yet according to our compaſſe of
performance) that whatſoeuer hath formerly been
ſayd concerning Walworths reuiuing at the Tombe,
his Royall attending, and the beautifull Monument
following, is all but a ſhaddow of that triumphant
victorie in our apteſt alluſion.
Our Pageant Chariot, is drawne by two Mare-
men, & two Mare-mayds, as being the ſupporters to
the Companies coate of Armes. In the higheſt
ſeate of eminence, ſits the triumphing Angell, who
that day ſmote the enemy by Walworths hand, and
laid all his proud preſuming in the duſt. With one
hand (King Richard ſitting in a degree beneath
her) ſhe holds his Crowne on faſt, that neither for-
raine Hoſtilitie, nor home-bred Trecherie ſhould
euer more ſhake it. In the other hand hee holds
his ſtriking Rodde, inferring thus much thereby:
By mee Kings reigne, and their enemies are ſcatte-
red
. All the forefront is beautified with Royall Ver-
tues, as Truth, Vertue, Honor, Temperance, For-
titude, Zeale, Equity, Conſcience, beating downe
Treaſon

Treaſon and Mutinie. Behind, and on the ſides,
ſits Iustice, Authority, Lawe, Vigilancy, Peace,
Plentie and Diſcipline, as beſt props and pillers to
any Kingly eſtate. Theſe, as all the reſt, are beſt
obſerued by their ſeuerall Emblems and properties,
borne by each one, and their adornments anſwera-
ble to them in like manner.
Hauing thus briefly deſcribed the order of the
daies ſeruice, inſomuch as appertaineth to my
charge and place, (not omitting the Fiſhing-Buſſe,
Dolphine, Mer-man and Mer-mayd vpon the wa-
ter firſt, and afterward marſhalled in ſuch forme
as you haue heard on land:) wee come to ſet
downe the Speeches, according as they are appoin-
ted to be ſpoken, beginning firſt at the Bower and
Tombe in Paules-Church-yard, after my Lords re-
turne from Weſtminster, where the Citties Genius
thus beginneth.

For thereto all our hopes are bent.


Sir William Walworth ſtanding be-
fore the Tombe and doing reuerence to
the Genius, ſpeaks this ſpeech.


HE that aboue two hundred yeeres,
(Free from diſturbance cares and feares,)
Hath ſilent ſlept, and rayſd this day,
To doe what gracefull helpe I may
Vnto that band of worthy men,
That were, and are my Brethren;
And you graue Fathers of this State,
Which I my ſelfe did propagate
Twice, as L. Maior: Oh, yet to ſee,
This ancient famous dignity
Flouriſh ſo fairely: And (as then)

Mooues teares of ioy, and bids me call
Gods beniſon light on you all.

Well wot I by that Sword & Mace,
With ſuch a difference, as before
This day, once happened, and no more.

From the Fiſhmongers ancient name,

In Londons Maioraltie. Theſe faire Coats

And now Iohn Leman,6 who well I wot,

Maior returneth to Paules, all the Deuiſes
being aptly placed in order neere to the lit-

Walworth
) deſcribed to him in
this manner.

NOw worthy Lord, there is impos’d on me,
A briefe narration of each ſeuerall ſhew
Prouided for this Triumph, as you ſee,
In order to deſcribe them as they goe.
The Fiſhing Buſſe inſtructs you firſt to know
The toylſome trauell of poore Fiſher-men,
Subiected to all weathers, where and when.
In ſtormy tempeſts they omit no paine,
To bleſſe all lands with the Seas bounteous ſtore:
Their labour doth returne rich golden gaine,
VVhereof themſelues taſte leaſt by Sea or ſhore,
But (like good ſoules) contented euermore
VVith any benefit their toyle can bring;
The Fiſher well is term’d Contents true King.
This Embleme of the Dolphine, is the Armorie
Belonging to our brethren, and beſide
Speakes ſomewhat of that creatures qualitie,
By nature Muſicall, as hath been tryde:
Poeſie and Muſique therefore thus do ride
Vpon his back, in ſweete Arions ſhape,
VVho, by a Dolphine, thus did death eſcape:
The King of Moores thus mounted, and his traine,
Shewes your affection to that Company,
Which league with you in loue, and doth containe
The aptnes of your correſpondency
On either ſide, to hold inſeperably.
His Indian treaſure liberally is throwne:
To make his bounteous heart the better knowne.

This Leman Tree, your Honour may conceit
More, then I ſpeake, becauſe myſteriouſly
Some hidden ſecret thereon doth awayte
Knowne to your ſelfe. It ſpeakes ingeniously
The Character of your authoritie:
Figur’d in that faire Bird, foſtring her brood:
Though with the deare expence of her owne blood.
Continuall cares, and many broken ſleepes,
Heart-killing feares, which waite on Eminence
Hard at the heeles, and (tortringly) ſtill keeps
VVithin the ſoule imperious reſidence,
As whippes t’afflict both hope and patience;
Theſe in the Pellicane are figur’d heere:
And theſe you hardly will auoide this yeere.
But as the Sences ſit about the Tree,
And ſhewe you how their vertues are ſupplyed
Still with freſh vigor: So (no doubt) will be
Your buſieſt troubles ſweetly qualified,
By thoſe fiue helpes that hold vp dignitie,
Diſcretion, Policie, and Prouidence,
Courage, Correction, theſe barre all offence.
Laſtly, looke on a figure of that day,
VVhen by Heauens helpe, and Walworths happy hand,
That ſwarme of Rebells, who fought all to ſway,
And haue both King and Country at command:
Euen in their height of pride, I made them ſtand,
And, in my Soueraigns ſight, there I ſtrooke dead
Their chiefeſt Captaine and commanding head.
The reſt of that baſe rout, diſmayd thereby,
And all tumultuous troubles calmely ceaſt,

His gracious fauour preſently expreſt
In Royall manner, Knighting me and the reſt

The Red-Croſſe, in a Siluer-field before,

Or, Chariot of Triumphall Victory
Some ſhape of that daies honour doth preſent,

That could affoord more time to ſpend,
But gladly would no way offend.

Bequeathes you to the Bridall bed:
Where you and your chaſte wife muſt reſt.
London (it ſeemes) did like you beſt,
(Although you are a Bacheler,)
To be her Husband for a yeere;
Loue her, delight her. Shee’s a Bride,
Nere ſlept by ſuch a Husbands ſide
But once before. She hath had many,
And you may proue as good as any

And ſtill renowned by your name.
Their hearty loue by me they ſend yee,
And pray the hand of heauen defend yee
In all your actions. May your Fame,
Crowne ſtill their ancient worthie name
To all posteritie. So, Londons Lord
And Virgin Husband, in a word:
