Loriners' Company apprenticeships

Loriners made bits, stirrups and other harness for horses. The Company is of medieval origins and its records are deposited at the Guildhall Library. However, apart from a list of members dating from 1424, no pre-eighteenth century records appear to survive for this company. The first volume of court minutes covers 1722 to 1731 (Guildhall Library Ms 15,835/1), the next does not begin until 1759 (GL Ms 15,835/2) and ends in 1794. The final volume of court minutes used in this work (GL Ms 15,835/3) continues from 1794 to 1811, after which there is a gap in the records until 1940.

The records of 470 Loriners' apprenticeships have been abstracted.
