Merchant Taylors, Worshipful Company of
- This company was granted its first charter in 1327. Its early wealth came from the making of tents and *acton. In time its power and influence increased as it acquired the authority to check measures of cloth at fairs and at places like Cheapside in the city of London. In its earlier days the company was less respectable and worthy. A dispute with the Goldsmiths in 1267 got out of control and a number of people were killed: the leaders were arrested, tried and executed.
