CAP. 2

Sr William Holles, the sonne of Thomas Holles of Stoke in the county of Warwicke, was borne in the raigne of K. Edward the 4th at Stoke aforesaid wch is a village wthin a mile of Coventry. That he was borne there hath beene the constant tradition from father to sonne; and yt he was borne in King Edward the 4ths raigne must be necessarily concluded from a letter of the first Earle of Clare (wch I have seene) to the Ld Burlegh, then Treasurer, in wch he sayes yt he died aged 71 yeares, so yt accounting backward from the yeare 1542 in wch he died he must be borne in or about the yeare 1471, a011 Ed. 4 ; and it seemes was at man's estate before he was bound apprentice, wch was not unusuall in those dayes. He was bound apprentice (as appeares by the record before cited) to Robert Kervile, Mercer of London for ten yeares; but it seemes he demeaned himselfe so well that he purchased his Freedome by the way of redemption (as they call it in the city) at seaven yeares end. For thus wee finde it recorded in the Booke of Freedomes.

' Willūs Holles de London, Mercerus, admissus fuit (p. 5) in libertatem civitatis London. Juratus coram Camerariis 17 die Septembris 15 Hen. 7 [a0 1499] et Rogerus Bansford [et quinque alii] manuceperunt pro praedicto Willī; et dat, etc., 40s.'au

It appeares by the praemisses that he had the good fortune both to serve in and be free of the society of the Mercers, wch is the prime company of the City of London and enjoyes beyond all the rest the greatest priveledges. He was chosen Warden of yt company in the 11th yeare of K. Hen. 8 1519, 1 and Maister Warden of the same company (wch last office they call Maister of the company) a0 21 Hen. 8, 1529. Theis are extant amongst the recordes in Mercers Hall, as I have receaved it from my worthy good freind Mr Wm Dugdale who was pleased to take the paynes to make search for me (wch favour I likewise ow him for severall other things
