Description: Burton-on-Trent & London.- William de Naples (merchant, of London, fl. 1355-60) Charter, William de Naples, citizen of London, grant to Henry de Leek of Burton-on-Trent and Cecily his wife, a half burgage with tenement on it, in Burton, abutting land of William de Burton and others, witnesses: William de Stapenhall, Robert de Lichfield and others, Stephen de ?Dyderden clerk [?scribe], manuscript in Latin, on vellum, 12 lines, folds, slightly creased and browned, lacks seal, 125 x 230mm., Burton-on-Trent, Wednesday, day after the Feast of St Oswald King and Martyr, [August], 1355. ⁂ On 8 May 1360 William de Naples was the debtor in a case held in front of John Pyel, Mayor of the Westminster Staple, against the creditor John Rayner [Reyner], a citizen and merchant of London for the amount of 40 marks. The case was settled in Rayner's favour and the writ was executed, "We, John Deynes and Walter de Berney {Berneye}, Sheriffs of London, signify that we have delivered to John Rayner all the messuages and shops listed in the writ." The writ refers to a previous one, returnable to Chancery by 01/07/1360, to which the sheriffs had replied that William was not found in their bailiwick and had no goods or chattels there, but he held in the Parish of St Martin within Ludgate and in [the Parish of] St Sepulchre in the Ward of Farringdon [Without] in the suburb of London two messuages and 26 shops for a number of years from the Mayor & Commonalty of the City, and a messuage for his life, which are worth £16 after expenses.
