CAndlewicke street, or
Candlewright street
, beginneth
at the East end of
Great East-Cheape, it
passeth West tho-
row East-Cheape to
Candlewright street,
and thorow the same downe to the
North end of Suffolke lane, on the South
side, and downe that Lane, by the west
end of S. Laurence Church-yard, which
is the farthese West part of that Ward.
The street of Great East-Cheape,

is so cal-
led of the Market there kept in the East
part of the Citie, as West-Cheap is a Mar-
ket so called, being in the West.
This East-Cheape is now a flesh-Mar-
ket of Butchers,
East-cheape a Cookes row.
there dwelling on both
sides of the street; it had sometime also
Cookes mixed amongst the Butchers,
and such other as sold victuals ready
dressed of all sorts. For of old time, when
friends did meet, and were disposed to
be merry, they went not to dine and sup
in Taverns, but to the Cookes, where
they called for meat what them liked,
which they alwayes found ready dres-
sed, and at a reasonable rate, as I have
before shewed.
In the yeere 1410. the 11. of Henry
the fourth

ten in East Cheape.
upon the Even of Saint Iohn
, the Kings sonnes, Thomas and
There was no Tavern then in East-cheape▪
being in East-Cheape at Supper,
(or rather at breakefast; for it was after
the Watch was broken up, betwixt two
and three of the clocke after midnight)
a great debate hapned betweene their
men, and other of the Court, which
lasted one houre, till the Maior and
Sheriffes with other Citizens appeased
the same: for the which afterwards, the
said Maior, Aldermen and Sheriffes,
were called to answer before the King;
his sonnes and divers Lords being high-
ly moved against the Citie. At which
time, William Gascoigne, Chiefe Iustice,
required the Maior and Aldermen,
for the Citizens, to put them in the
Kings grace: whereunto they answered,
that they had not offended, but (accor-
ding to the Law) had done their best in
stinting debate, and maintaining of the
peace: upon which answer the King re-
mitted all his ire, and dismissed them.
And to prove this East-Cheape to be a
place replenished with Cookes, it may
appeare by a Song, called London licke-
, made by Lidgate a Monk of Bury,
in the reigne of Henry the fifth, in the
person of a Countrey-man comming to
London, and travelling thorow the same.
In West-Cheap lin-
nen cloth sold, but no silkes spoken of.

In West-Cheape (saith the Song) hee was
called on to buy fine Lawne
, Paris thread,
Cotton Vmble
, and other linnen clothes,
and such like: (he speaketh of no silkes)
In Cornehill, to buy old apparell, and house-
hold-stuffe, where he was forced to buy his

which he had lost in Westmin-
ster Hall
: In Candlewright street, Dra-
profered him cheape Cloth: In
East-Cheape, the Cookes cryed hot Ribs
of Beefe rosted, Pies well baked, and o-
ther victuals: There was clattering of
Pewter pots, Harpe, Pipe and Sawtrie;
yea by cocke, nay by cocke, for greater
oathes were spared: some sang of Ienkin
and Iulian, &c. all which melodie liked
well the passenger, but he wanted mo-
ney to abide by it, and therefore gat
him into Gravesend Barge, and home in-
to Kent.

Candlewright (so called in old Records
of the Guild-hall of Saint Mary Overies,

and other) or Candlewicke street; tooke
that name (as may be supposed) either
of Chandlers, or makers of Candles,
both of Wax and Tallow: for Candle-
is a maker of Candles; or of
weeke, which is the Cotten or Yarne
thereof: or otherwise Wike, which is the
place where they used to worke them;
as Scalding-wike by the Stockes Market,
was called of the Poulters dressing and
scalding their Poultrie there. And in
divers Countries, Dayrie-houses, or
Cottages wherein they make Butter
and Cheese, are usually called Wickes.
There dwelled also of old time, divers
Weavers of woollen Clothes,
VVeavers in Candle-
wick street
in by Edward the third. For I read that
in the 44. of his reigne, the Weavers
brought out of Flanders,
Weavers brought out of Flanders & Brabant.
were appoin-
ted their meetings to be in the Church-
yard of S. Laurence Poultney
, and the
Weavers or Brabant in the Churchyard
of S. Mary Sommerset. There were then
in this Citie, Weavers of divers sorts,
to wit, of Drapery or Tapery, and Na-
pery. These Weavers of Candlewicke
, being in short time worne out,
their place is now possessed by rich
Drapers, sellers of wollen cloath, &c.
On the North side of this Ward, at
the West end of East-cheape, have ye S.
Clements lane
, a part whereof (on both
sides, is of Candlewicke street Ward; to
wit, somewhat North, beyond the Pa-
rish Church of S. Clement
in East-cheap.
This is a small Church, void of Monu-
ments, other than of,

Next is Saint Nicholas Lane, for the
most part on both sides of this Ward,
almost to S. Nicholas Church.
Then is Abchurch lane, which is on
both sides, almost wholly of this ward:
the Parish Church there (called of S.
Mary Abchurch, Apechurch
, or Vpchurch,
as I have read it) standeth somewhat
neere unto the South end thereof, on a
rising ground: It is a faire Church:

This Dame Helen Branch, Widdow
to Sir Iohn Branch, Knight, Lord Maior
of London, An. 1580. gave fifty pounds
to be lent to two yong men of the Com-
pany of Drapers
, from foure yeeres to
foure yeeres for ever, 50. l. Which La-
dy, gave also to poore Maids marriages
10. l. And to the poore of Abchurch 10. l. To the poore Prisoners in and about
London, 20. l. Besides, 26. Gownes to
poore men and women, 26. l. And
many other worthy Legacies to the V-
niversities, &c.
On the South side of this Ward, be-
ginning againe at the East, is S. Micha-
, which lane is almost wholly of
this Ward, on both sides downe to-
wards Thames street, to a Well or Pump
there. On the East side of this lane is
Crooked lane aforesaid, by St. Michaels
, towards New-Fishstreet. One
the most ancient house in this lane, is
called the Leaden Porch, and belonged
sometime to Sir Iohn Merston, Knight,
the first of Edward the fourth: It is now
called the Swanne in Crooked lane, pos-
sessed of strangers, and selling of Rhe-
nish Wine. The Parish Church of this
S. Michaels
, was sometime but a small
and homely thing, standing upon part
of that ground, wherein now standeth
the Parsonage house: and the ground
thereabout was a filthy plot, by reason
of the Butchers in East-cheap, who made
the same their Laystall.
W. de Burgo gave two Messuages to
that Church in Candlewick street, 1317.
Iohn Loveken
Stock-fishmonger, foure
times Maior, builded (in the same
ground) this faire Church of S. Micha-
, and was there buried in the Quire,
under a faire Tombe, with the Images
of him and his wife in Alabaster: the
said Church hath been since increased
with a new Quire, and side Chappels
by Sir W. Walworth, Stock-fishmonger,
Maior, sometime servant to the said
Iohn Loveken. Also the Tombe of Love-
was removed, and a flat stone of
gray Marble, garnished with plates of
Copper laid on him, as it yet remaineth
in the body of the Church.
This William Walworth is reported to
have slaine Iacke Strawe:
Fable of VV Wal-
and Iack Straw reproved.
but Iack Straw
being afterward taken, was first adjud-
ged by the said Maior, and then execu-
ted by the losse of his head in Smithfield.
True it is,
Praise of VV. VVal-
for his man-
hood in arresting of VVat Tylar.
that this William Walworth,
being a man wise, learned, and of an in-
comparable manhood arrested VVat Ty-
, a presumptuous Rebell, upon whom
no man durst lay hand, whereby he de-
livered the King and Kingdome from
most wicked tyranny of Traytors. The
Maior arrested him on the head with a
sound blow: whereupon Wat Tylar fu-
riously strooke the Maior with his Dag-
The Maior was well armed, and had on his head a Basenet.
but hurt him not, by reason he was
well armed. The Maior having recei-
ved his stroke, drew his Basiliard, and
grievously wounded VVat in the necke,
and withall, gave him a great blow on
the head:
T. Walsing, H. Knighton Li. S. Mary Aborum.
in the which conflict, an Es-
quire of the Kings house, called Iohn
, drew his sword, and woun-
ded VVat twice or thrice, even to the
death: and VVat spurring his horse,
cryed to the Commons to revenge him:
the horse bare him about 80. foot from
the place, and there he fell downe halfe
dead: and by and by, they which at-
tended on the King, environed him a-
bout, so as he was not seen of his Com-
pany: many of them thrust him in, in
divers places of his body, and drew him
into the Hospitall of Saint Barthole-
, from whence againe the Maior
caused him to be drawn into Smithfield,
and there to bee beheaded. In reward

of this service (the people being disper-
sed) the King commanded the Maior to
put a Basenet on his head:
Maior made Knight, and other-
wise re-
and the Ma-
ior requesting why he should so do, the
King answered, hee being much bound
unto him, would make him Knight.
The Maior answered, that hee was nei-
ther worthy, nor able to take such an e-
state upon him; for hee was but a Mer-
chant, and had to live by his Merchan-
dise onely. Notwithstanding, the King
made him to put on his Basenet,
Order of making a Knight for service in the field.
then with a sword in both his hands, he
strongly strooke him on the necke, as
the manner was then. And the same
day he made 3. other Citizens Knights
(for his sake) in the same place, to wit,
Iohn Philpot,
Aldermen Knighted.
Nicholas Brember, and Ro-
bert Launde
, Aldermen. The King gave
to the Maior 100. pound land by yeere,
and to each of the other 40. pound land
yeerely, to them and their heires for
After this, in the same yeere, the said
Sir William Walworth founded in the
said Parish Church of Saint Michael, a
Colledge, of a Master and nine Priests
or Chaplens, and deceasing 1385. was
there buried in the North Chappell by
the Quire:
Monumēt of Sir VV. VValworth defaced and since falsified, and so re-
but his Monument being
(amongst other by bad people) defaced
in the reigne of Edward the sixth, and a-
gaine since renued by the Fishmongers,
for lacke of knowledge, whatsoever be-
fore had beene written in this Epitaph,
they followed a fabulous Booke, and
wrote Iacke Strawe, in stead of Wat Ty-
: a great error, meet to be reformed
there, and elsewhere; and therefore have
I the more at large discoursed of this
It hath also been, and is now growne
to a common opinion, that in reward of
this service done by the said VVilliam
against the Rebell; that King
added to the Armes of this Ci-
ty (which was Argent, a plaine Crosse
Gules) a Sword,
or Dagger, (for so
they terme it) whereof I have read no
such Record, but to the contrary. I
finde, that in the fourth yeere of Richard
the second
, in a full assembly made in
the upper Chamber of the Guildhall,
summoned by this William Walworth,
then Maior, as well of Aldermen, as of
the Common Councell in every Ward,
for certain affaires concerning the King;
it was there by common consent agreed
and ordained, that the old Seale of the
Office of the Maioraltie of the City,
Old Seale of the Ma-
ioralty broken, and a new Seale made.
ing very small, old, unapt, and uncome-
ly for the honour of the City, should be
broken, and one other new should bee
had, Which the said Maior comman-
ded to be made artificially, and honou-
rable for the exercise of the said Office
therafter in place of the other. In which
new Seale,
The Arms of this Ci-
ty were not alte-
red, but remaine afore: to wit, Ar-
gent, a plaine Crosse Gules, a Sword of S. Paul in the first quarter, and no Dagger of VV. VVal-
, as is fabuled.
besides the Images of Peter
and Paul, which of old were rudely en-
graven, there should bee under the feet
of the said Images, a Shield of the
Armes of the said City perfectly graven
with two Lions supporting the same,
and two Sergeants of Armes, in the o-
ther part, one, and two Tabernacles, in
which, above, should stand two Angels
between whom (above the said Images
of Peter and Paul) should be set the glo-
rious Virgin. This being done, the old
Seale of the Office was delivered to Ri-
chard Odiham
Chamberlain, who brake
it, and in place thereof, was delivered
the new Seale to the said Maior, to use
in his Office of Maioralty, as occasion
should require. This new Seale seemeth
to be made before VVilliam VValworth
was Knighted, for he is not there intitu-
led Sir, as afterwards he was: and cer-
taine it is, that the same new Seale then
made, is now in use, and none other in
that Office of the Maioralty. Which
may suffice to answer the former Fable,
without shewing of any evidence sealed
with the old Seale which was the
Crosse, and Sword of Saint Paul, and
not the Dagger of VVilliam VValworth.
Now, of other Monuments in that

to have a mansion,

for my redemption.

must needs inroll
Paul VVithypoll his childe,
by love and Nature,
Elizabeth, the wife
In whom was declared
the goodnesse of the Lord,
With many high vertues,
which truely I will record.
She wrought all Needle-workes
that women exercise,
With Pen; Frame, or Stoole,
all Pictures artificiall,
Curious Knots or Trailes,
what fancy would devise,
Beasts, Birds, or Flowers,
even as things naturall:
Three manner hands could she
write, them faire all.
To speake of Algorisme,
or accounts, in every fashion,
Of women, few like
(I thinke) in all this Nation.
Dame Cunning her gave
a gift right excellent,
The goodly practice

of her Science Musicall,
In divers tongues to sing,
and play with Instrument,
Both Viall and Lute,
and also Virginall;
Not onely upon one,
but excellent in all.
For all other vertues
belonging to Nature,
God her appointed
a very perfect creature.
Latine and Spanish,
and also Italian,
She spake, writ, and read,
with perfect utterance;
And for the English,
she the Garland wan,
In Dame Prudence Schoole,
by Graces purveyance,
which cloathed her with Vertues,
from naked Ignorance:
Reading the Scriptures,
to judge light from darke,
Directing her faith to Christ,
the onely Marke.

not fully 27. This Stone, and all here-
on contained, made at the cost of the said

Antiquities thereof. It hath an Alder-
man and his Deputy; common. Coun-
sellours, eight; Constables, eight, Sca-
vengers, six; Ward-mote Inquest men,
twelve, and a Beadle. It is taxed to
the Fifteene at sixteene pounds.
