PREFACE 



Fourteen years have passed since the publication of 
the Fifth Volume of the ' Records of the Borough of 
Nottingham.' 

Some four years ago the General Purposes Committee 
and the Finance Committee of the City Council concurred 
in the desire to continue the series and to place before the 
citizens and a wider public the story of the old Borough 
during the hrst portion of the eighteenth century so far as 
it is told in the archives of the Corporation. 

Alderman Sir Edward Fraser. D.C.L., and Mr. 
Councillor Edwin Mellor, the Chairmen of those Com- 
mittees, were keenly interested in the work. 

The editors of the previous volumes held appointments 
on the Town Clerk's staff, and when their official connection 
with the City ceased, systematic research into the ancient 
documents was not continued. 

Happily the Council was able to retain the services of a 
Nottingham man enthusiastic in archaeological work and 
experienced in literary production. 

Mr. Everard Leaver Guilford, M.A., of Clare 
College, Cambridge, now Lecturer in History at University 
College, Nottingham, is the editor responsible for the 
selection and transcription of the documents included in this 
volume. 

As the Records are brought down to more recent times 
a far greater number of papers are found to have been 
preserved. All these have to be examined, and the editor's 
task is thereby rendered more difficult.

VI PREFACE. 

It is believed Mr. Guilford has made a wise choice 
from the mass of material at his disposal. He has included 
lists of Freemen who were admitted to that status in the 
period covered by the volume. 

Doubtless in these lists, and in the names of those who 
occupied official positions during that time many Nottingham 
citizens will have a personal interest. 

Amongst the Municipal Corporations Nottingham was 
one of the first to publish its mediaeval records. 

The story of the later centuries of town life should be 
equally welcome to the men of to-day. 

Past years all made their contribution to the great civic 
structure of the present. 

When I ceased to be Town Clerk it was permitted to 
me to retain an active interest in the publication of the 
present volume, and I am grateful for that privilege. 

This preface is written at the very kind request of my 
friend and successor, Mr. W. J. Board, who is happily 
interested in a Seventh Volume on which Mr. Guilford is 
occupied, and which will complete our Records to the 
passing of the Municipal Corporations Act, 1835. 

J. A. H. GREEN. 
Nottingham, 

August, 1914. 



I \ T R I) U C T I N 



I. — The Nottingham records of the period of this volume are 
very numerous, more numerous indeed than has been the case in 
any period previously dealt with in this publication. This wealth of 
material has therefore been subjected to a process of selection, and 
the matter here presented must be regarded simply as extracts. 
The editor has kept three objects before him in making his selection. 
His desire has been to retain all documents which threw any light 
on to the development of municipal offices or institutions, or which 
bore in any degree upon the life of the nation at large during these 
most important years, or which from their quaintness threw side- 
hghts upon the life of our fellow-townsmen in a past age. 

It must always be remembered that such a book as this is not 
intended to be a history of the town of Nottingham, but only a 
store-house of facts from which historians of the future may obtain 
their materials and use them according to their individual fancies. 
The editor has therefore refrained from deducing from the material 
what seems to him to be the history of the first half of the iSth 
century. His task has been to collect the facts and not to arrange 
them in the form of any connected history. A real history of 
Nottingham drawn from her municipal papers yet remains to be 
written. It is to be hoped that this task will be carried out before 
long, but this introduction is not the place in which to present such 
a connected story. 

The fire at the office of Mr. Morris, the Town Clerk, on the 
night of February 7, 1723/4, was a disaster of incalculable dimensions 
for we cannot estimate what valuable papers were then destroyed. 
For the years under consideration here the loss was great and the 
material belonging to the years immediately preceding the fire has 



Viii INTRODUCTION. 

been reduced to a regrettable minimum. The missing documents, 
both those burnt and those of later years which have been abstracted 
or mislaid, are noted in the text and no separate tabulation here 
is necessary. With the exception of the Chamberlains' Accounts 
and Vouchers all the documents are in book form and are, in 
consequence, in a good state of preservation. The Chamberlains' 
papers however were made up into bundles, and this method of 
preservation, often carelessly carried out, has resulted in the partial 
destruction of many papers. However, considerably over ten 
thousand papers have survived and it has been no small labour to 
peruse all these. Not infrequently it has been necessary to smooth 
out and cleanse a paper before it could be read. However, the 
work has proved worthy of the labour expended on it, for much of 
great value has been discovered and put on record. But it would 
be well if these papers could be placed in expert hands and bound 
into books so that no further destruction can take place. Perhaps 
the most scanty of all collections are those of the records of the 
doings of the Mickleturn Jury. For some reason these have not 
been well preserved and many regrettable gaps occur in the series. 
It should be noted that the first insertion of any class of document 
in this volume is the first time when any such papers occur, e.g., 
there are no Chamberlains' Rentals before 1713 nor Minutes of the 
Mickleturn Jury Presentments before 1741. 

H. — The present editor has followed the system of arrangement 
adopted by his predecessors. The original spelling and punctuation 
have been preserved, and where a word was abridged the letters 
lacking have been inserted in italics. So little matter in Latin 
remains that it was not thought necessary to separate it from the 
rest of the documents, and it has therefore been inserted in its true 
chronological position — a translation being provided in the foot- 
notes. 

The editor has made one or two innovations which have seemed 
to him to increase the usefulness of the volume. In addition to 
an Index of Streets he has provided separate Indices Rerum and 



INTRODUCTION. IX 

Nominiim. A complete list of the burgesses made during these 
years will also be found. This last includes many names which are 
still familiar to residents in Nottingham and it should prove of great 
assistance to students of genealogy and others who take vm interest 
in their ancestors. 

III. — Former editors have had occasion to remark on the 
scantiness of material bearing on great national events. The 
townsmen of the first half of the iSth century took a keen interest 
in what was happening outside their own narrow sphere of existence. 
They were always ready to ring the church bells when any great 
victory was reported. Probably no period of English history has 
seen so many glorious victories as this did, and as we read the records 
of bell-ringings we can understand Horace Walpole's remark in 1759, 
' We are forced to ask every morning what victory there is for fear 
of missing one.' 

No record of a national victory has been omitted because the 
editor wishes to emphasize the importance of the period under 
consideration. It is doubtful whether the average Englishman 
realised the importance of the age in which he was living, an age 
when, to quote Professor J. R. Seeley, ' We seem to have conquered 
and peopled half the world in a fit of absence of mind.' The period 
before us is the first half of that second Hundred Years' War with 
France, during which we won from her the supremacy in the New 
World and established our position in Canada and India. 

Two national events closely connected with each other stand 
out prominently. The Jacobite risings of 1715 and 1745 are both 
noted in these records, and though, unfortunately, the Hall book 
for 1715 is lost, a large amount of information relating to the 
rising of 1745 remains. The proximity of Derby, which was reached 
by the rebels on December 4th, 1745, caused a great alarm in 
Nottingham, and it is beheved that the information supplied in 
these papers will prove of considerable interest. We read how 
Nottingham prepared itself for attack by guarding all approaches 
to the town. Possibly the international character of the guards 



X INTRODUCTION. 

bears witness to the distrust which must have existed in the country, 
and we have certain evidence that the Jacobites had sympathisers 
within the town itself. 

So numerous and frequent are the entries relating to the troops 
which passed through Nottingham during these troublous times 
that perhaps it will be of interest to know that more than a half 
of the English army which took part in the campaign against the 
Young Pretender passed through this town at one time or another. 
We would advise readers who wish to know more about the English 
army at this time to refer to the volume entitled ' Itinerary of 
Prince Charles Edward/ pubhshed by the Scottish History Society. 

IV. — In the Introduction to Volume IV of this series the editor 
discussed at some length the long-standing dispute between the 
Common Council and the commonalty of the town. In the volume 
before us we have another phase of this dispute. The Corporation 
was a close body and resented any attempt to infringe its supposed 
rights. Until 1728 a loophole by which entrance to the Corporation 
might be obtained existed in the Junior Council, for election to 
which all burgesses were eligible ; but after that year the Junior 
Council was suppressed and the Corporation became as close as it 
was possible for it to be. Entrance to it was obtained through 
the office of Chamberlain. These two officials were generally chosen 
by the Mayor, either directly or indirectly, — in any case they could 
generally be relied upon to act in the interest of the Corporation. 
After their year of office they not infrequently were chosen as 
Sheriffs and then on their retirement from office became, ipso facto, 
members of the ' Cloathing.' When a vacancy occurred, owing to 
the death or resignation of a councillor, one of the ' Cloathing ' was 
chosen to fill it and so the commonalty of the town were practically 
cut off from all share in municipal affairs. Now and then we hear 
of opposition from within the Council, but it appears to have done 
but little good owing to the smallness of its numbers. It was not 
until 1749 that the opposition found themselves sufficiently powerful 
to commence a suit against the Corporation for the restitution of 



INTRODUCTION. XI 

the body known as Junior Councillors. This volume contains a 
great deal of interest bearing on the struggle against the close 
corporation. 

Two other points which are worthy of note are that in spite of 
the Test and Corporation Acts remaining in force the annual 
Indemnity Bill enabled Dissenters to hold office, and we find 
that the Corporation of Nottingham included many Dissenters. 
The other point which is noticeable is the attempt of the Corporation 
to influence parliamentary elections. In 1753 a committee was 
appointed ' for the purposes of exerting the Interest of this 
Corporation against the next Election for such Representative or 
Representatives to be chosen as are in the Interest of this Corpora- 
tion.' Out of a meeting of twenty only four dissentient voices were 
raised. But the opposition in the town must have been stronger 
than that in the Corporation, for one ^^'hig and one Tory member 
were elected. 

V. — In order to facilitate the identification of the Streets of 
Nottingham and thus give the student of our history some idea of 
what Nottingham was hke, a map of the town has been included. 
This is the map which appeared in Deering's History when that 
book was published posthumously in 1751. It is the work of 
Badder and Peat, and though in one or two instances it appears to 
lack exactitude, yet it serves to show what Nottingham was like. 
No contemporary map of the fields of the town exists, but the 
editor has been enabled by the possession of a map of slightly later 
date to identify most of the place-names occurring in this volume. 
Those which stiU remain to be located have been marked unidentified, 
and should any reader be able to throw any light on the locality of 
any place so marked the editor would be very grateful. 

VI. — It remains now to thank those who have helped in the prepar- 
ation of this volume. It is impossible to name all those to whom the 
editor has applied at one time or another for assistance and advice, 
but to one and all he tenders his grateful thanks. To Mr. James 



XU INTRODUCTION. 

Granger, however, special thanks are due. Mr. Granger can claim 
a wide knowledge of old Nottingham and this has been placed 
unreservedly at the editor's disposal. Without his help many 
passages in the text which have been explained would have remained 
obscure. Both his help and his suggestions have been invaluable. 
To the late Town Clerk of Nottingham, Mr. J. A. H. Green, the 
editor wishes to express his thanks. Mr. Green has given much 
useful advice and encouragement, and it is largely due to him that 
the work of preparing this volume was undertaken. 

The editor also wishes to thank the Council of the Thoroton 
Society for the loan of the block from which the plan of the 
town has been reproduced.

Bales, a Water-Engine was set on Foot by

shares. The Original Sharers . . . met 
with many Difficulties, and found it very 
expensive for some Years, before they could 
rightly bring it to bear, but of late is 
brought to a competent Perfection, so that 
they are in a Condition of supplying any 
part of Nottingham ; the East-part of the 
Town has the water immediately from the 
Engine, whilst the West-part receives it 
from a large Reservoir made in that part 
of Butt-Dyke where the ancient Postern 
stood, besides this, least at any Time, 
there should be want of W'ater on Account 
of the River Leen being low, the Company 
Rent of his Grace the Duke of Newcastle, 
a large Pond in the Park, lying close by 
the River, to which they have fixed Flood- 
Gates, serving in Time of Floods to let the 
Water in, and in Time of Scarcity, to 
furnish Water enough to set tlie Engine to 
Work.'

Debts of Corporation. — Ordered by this house That for the Yearc 
ensuing all sum;;?es of money that shall be received, by this Cor- 
poracion for the Fines of the Chambcrland Bridgeland and School 
land which, shall be left upon Lease shall be brought into the Hall 



' This was the usual grant made b\' 
the Corporation towards a plate given by 
the town of Nottingham at the races held 
on the Forest. Deering (p. 76) writes : — 
' Nottingham is one of the twelve Towns 
where the King's Guineas are run for, 
besides other money or plates. These 
Races are kept in July, the Course which 
formerly was four Miles round, is at this 
time but two Miles. It is one of the best 
in England, and is never out of Order for 
running be the weather what it will. Here 
is a fine Valley for Coaches, Chariots, etc. 
to pass and repass, and for the accomoda- 
tion of the Nobility and Gentry who come 



to the Races. This Nottingham Course 
could once have v}'ed with an}' Course in 
the Kingdom for a grand appearance of 
Nobility, neither Newmarket nor Banstead- 
Downs, boast of better Company nor 
Horses, but since the great Increase of 
Horse-Races it has rather dwindled, how- 
ever the late Act of Parliament has been of 
some Service to it, and there seems a very 
great likelihood that in a number of years 
it may recover its former Lustre.' 

From the fact that a further grant was 
made in July of the same year it appears 
that races were held twice a vear.

' ' The year after the Union, the dis- 
content of the Scots encouraged Louis to 
attempt to stir up a Jacobite rebellion in 
Scotland. The plan was well laid, and 
intrusted to Forbin, the best of the French 
sailors. He was to take the Pretender on 
board at Dunkirk and land him with 
4000 men, on the shore of the Firth of 
F"orth, when it was hoped that the English 
garrison of 1700 men would be easily 
beaten, and that the country would rise 
eagerly in the Pretender's favour. How- 



ever, the expedition was kept waiting a 
week while the young prince was laid up 
with the measles ; and before it sailed the 
Government had been warned. Accord- 
ingly, Byng, with 16 ships, was close on 
the heels of Forbin's 5. Against such 
overwhelming odds Forbin could do 
nothing ; and when Hyng overtook him off 
I lie Firth of Forth he was glad to escape 
with the loss of only one ship, and to bring 
the Pretender safely home again.'

' Before a butcher could slaughter a 
hull in the town he had to bait him in the 
ring fixed in the Market-place. ' The 
mayoress found a rope, for which she 
received a shilling from each burgess when 
he took up his freedom ; this was called 
the maj-oress's pin-money.' (Blackner, 
p. 63 n.) 

- Blackner (p. 143) describes these 
Almshouses as standing ' on the south side 
of the street, and nearly facing the end of 
(^ueen Street.' The name of the founder 
is uncertain, })ut the name of William Scott, 
who was mayor in 1578-9 is mentioned by 
Blackner as a reputed founder. See vol. 
iv. of Borough Records for William Scott. 



3 This Prince was George William 
(1717-1718) second son of George Prince 
of Wales, afterwards George II. At the 
baptism of this prince, George I. and the 
Prince of Whales quarrelled, for whilst the 
Prince selected one godfather the King 
persisted in selecting another. The result 
was that the Prince was arrested, com- 
manded to leave St. James's and excluded 
from all court ceremonies. 

■* This well was situated at the west 
end of what is now Upper Parliament 
Street, just about where the pavement 
turns westward on the north side. It 
therefore was opposite the west or Chapel 
Bar entrance to the town. At a later date 
the well was superseded by a pump.

And the said William Green averring that the said Mr Garton 
declared in his hearing that the Reason of his Charging the said Mr

' Courts of Conscience or Courts of 
Request were established under Local Acts 
in many towns in England during the i8th 
century (Bristol 1689, Norwich 1701) 
in order to provide for the recovery of 
petty debts. The establishment of this 
court bears witness to the decay that was 
taking place during the i8th century in the 



Municipal Courts of civil jurisdiction, as 
well as to the tendency to fission and 
specialisation in the courts of some of the 
larger municipalities.

' The meaning of this expression is 

doubtful. It probably means ' parcel of 

prickings.' Parcel means a heap or bundle. 

The word ' prickings ' has two meanings : 

(i) Short thorn bushes stuck on top of 

an earthen fence when the thorn 

hedge, cut down so that it may grow 

afresh, forms an insecure barrier, the 

stronger stems are cut into short pieces 

(prickins) and thrust in close rows 

along the top of the hedge on each side. 



(2) Evergreens for Christmas decoration. 

- The most likely explanation of this 
is that ' soap ' in this very crudely written 
document is a mistake for 'heap.' How- 
ever it has been suggested that Mr. Burton 
may have been a soap maker and that the 
ashes were of a kind used in the manu- 
facture of this article, perhaps beech ash.

deceased. The Candidates proposed were Mr Benjamin Bull and 5 
John Plumptre the Younger Esquire ; who had both been some- 
time past Sheriffs of the said Town, and now both of the degree of 
Sheriff, And there being an objection raised against Mr Plumptre 
for that his residence was in or near London, and at so great a 
distance that he could not execute the Office of a Common Council 10 
man as he ought, or to that or the like Import : And as Mr Plumptre 
was now at a distance : and no satisfaction was given to John 
Burton Escjuire Mavor of the said Town, That the said John Plumptre

desire a continuance of the Poll against him And that Mr Plumptre 20 
would come down to be sworn into the Office of a Common Council 
man of the same Town The Poll was stayed And being minded 
to have the vacancy in the Common Council by virtue of this Election

On which said Twenty first day of June 1751 the said John 
Plumptre did not attend according to the said Appointment : 
Neither did the Mayor hear or received any Message from himself 
to excuse his not attending : or to desire longer Time. Nor hath 35 
he the said John Plumptre the Younger ever wrote ; or sent from 
himself any Message to the Mayor since, to signify that he would 
accept the Office of a Common Council Man, or to let the Mayor 
know what was his Mind concerning that Affair. 3510 fo. 30,

Printed letter sent to Mr Cornelius Huthwaite 

Lothbury, London, 

27 June 1751. 
Sir, 
1 5 The last Session the Coroners Bill passed the House of Commons 
without Opposition, but was rejected by the Lords, whose Objec- 
tions thereto, during the Prorogation of both Houses, were removed, 
and with great Reason it was hoped, that the Bill, thus amended, 
would have passed both Houses, without Interruption ; accordingly 
20 it was moved in the House of Commons this present Session, read 
twice, and ordered to be committed ; but very unexpectedly Mr 
Hardinge, a Member for Rye in Suffolk, rose up, and objected so 
strongly against it, that it was thought adviseable to drop the 
further sollicitation thereof for this Session, and on the 20th of last 
25 Month it was dropped accordingly : This, I assure you, is Matter of 
no small concern to me, because I am clearly satisfied with the

Between the parishes of St Mary in the Town of Nottingham 
and of Arnold in the County of Nottingham Upon hearing the 
Appeal against the Order now read for setling Joshua Barnes and his 15 
wife at Arnold ; The following Facts and Queries were setled and 
delivered to the Clerk of the peace ; to take the Opinion of Taylor 
White Esquire the Deputy Recorder thereupon for the direction of 
the Court, To wit. 

Joshua Barnes of Arnold in the County of Nottingham was 20 
bound by the Parish Officers of Arnold aforesaid with his own 
Consent by a parish Indenture dated 21st January 1737 as Appren- 
tice to John Wright in the parish of St Mary within the Town and 
County of the Town of Nottingham Frameworkknitter, which 
Indenture was with the assent of Two Justices of the County of 25 
Nottingham at large : That the said Joshua Barnes served and 

' In 1747, when Sir Charles Sedley, a gave a fir-tree from Nutlall which was set 

tory, was elected Member of Parliament up as a maypole in Backside, now Parlia- 

for Nottingham, so great were the ment Street. It was erected some few 

rejoicings, owing to the fact that he was yards to the west of where the present 

the first Tory member since 17 15, that he Parliament Street and Clumber Street join. 



1752] RECORDS OF THE BOROUGH OF NOTTINGHAM. 249 

resided with his Master as an Apprentice under the said Indenture 
in the said parish of St Mary for the Space of Seven Years ; and 
then the Master and Apprentice parted ; and the Master gave up 
the Indentures, since which Time the said Joshua Barnes has 
5 gained no other Settlement in any other place. 

2. If the said Joshua Barnes has gained a Settlement by 
virtue of such Indenture and Service in the parish of St Mary : Or 
whether the Church wardens and Overseers of the Parish of Arnold 
by the consent of Two Justices of peace (quorum unus) of that 

10 County have power to bind any poor person of their parish into 
another parish wuthin the Town and County of the Town of Not- 
tingham that being a distinct County. And be it remembered 
That this Question is stated with Intent to have the Opinion of 
Taylor White Esquire Deputy Recorder of Nottingham thereupon 

15 and not with Intent to be removed by Certiorari into the Court of 
Kings Bench. 

Edward Wilmot Council for the Pansh of Arnold 
John Clay : for the parish of St Mary. 
Answer 

20 Two Questions are made by this Case. Ye ist whether Barnes 
has gained a Settlement by ye IndentuYe and service as above stated. 
The 2d whether Church wardens and Overseers of a parish in ye 
County of Nottingham have w/th ye Consent of 2 Justices of that 
County power to bind any poor person into a parish within ye Town 

25 and County of ye Town of Nottinghawi 

As to the 2d Question the Law is clear That ye Church wardens 
and Overseers of a Parish in the County of Nottingham with ye 
Consent of 2 Justices of that County have no power nor authority 
whatsoever to bind any poor person into any parish within the 

30 Town or County of the Town of Nottingham but are expresly 
restrained from intermedling out of their own County or division by 
the Stdittde of the 43d of Ehzabeth : as appear by ye 8 and 9 Sections 
of that Act. 

As to ye first Question Whether as this Case is Stated Barnes has 

35 gained a Settlement in ye Parish of St Marys I am of Opinion That 
if Barnes was a party to that Indenture and served his Time accor- 
ding to the Terms thereof, that whether he was an Infant or of Age 
he has by his Service and acquiescence under that Indenture gained 



250 RECORDS OF THE BOROUGH OF NOTTINGHAM, [l752 

a Settlement in St Marys Though the Indenture so far as it is consi- 
dered as Act of ye Overseers and Justices is absolutely void : If the 
Indentures were given up, and made void before the Service was 
performed and the Child not a party to the Inderiture, I think he 
has no Settlement thereby. 5

28 ; 183, 24 ; 211, 6 ; 219, 5 ; 
219,10. It is difficult to define 
the exact boundaries of this part 
of the Common fields of the town, 
because no street formed the 
exact boundary line. The nearest 
dividing line between the Clay 
and the Sand fields is Mansfield 
Road and Sandy Lane (now 
divided into Huntingdon Street, 
Windsor Street, St. Michael's 
Street, and Millstone Lane), 
though it must be remembered 
that some acres of the Sand field 
were on the east of this hne. 
With this reservation it may be 
roughly stated that the Clay 
Field comprised the common 
fields of the town to the east of 
the line above described.

Coll VERS Lane, 60, 22. The same 
as Coalpit Lane. 

Common Barrs, 190, 18. The 
gaol. Perhaps the use of the 
name Bar in this connection may 
be due to the frequent employ- 
ment of town gates or bars as 
prisons. 

Coppice, The, 41, 12 ; 48, 15 ;

10 ; 161, 5. There were really 
two Coppices, a Near and a Far

the Mapperley Hills. A short 
account of them will be found in 
Deering's History, p. 2. See 
also Farr Coppice and Rough

at the east end of Cuck Stool 
Row and Rotten Row, now 
the Poultry and Cheapside, 
where High Street and Bridle-

Victoria Street being quite 
modern. 

High, 96, 17 ; 179, 28. The site 
of this cross is now covered by

Cross Teys. 

High Hill, 88, 18. Presumably 
the same as High Cross. From 
the terrier accompanying 
Wood's map of the Corpora- 
tion estates, 1848, we learn 
that the gardens bounded by 
Sandy Lane (Huntingdon 
Street), Fox Lane (Wood- 
borough Road), and Mansfield 
Road were known as High 
Hill Cross.
