The Incorporated Company of Tanners Newcastle Upon Tyne

  • Description

    "....Tanning is the ancient craft of converting animal skins into wearable garments. The Ordinary of the Tanners Guild, anciently called Barkers, and dated 1532, ordered the society to come in their best apparel, at the feast of Corpus Christi, and go in procession to set forth their pageants, on pain of forfeiting a pound of wax. Other company rules include a promise not to take any Scot by birth as an apprentice, under a penalty of twenty shillings, that each brother should have but one butcher to buy and slaughter on pain of 10 shillings...."
