    Exclamation Liverpool's Charters since 1207

    King John 1207 Charter:

    The attached images contain the actual charter and various seals.


    ADVERTISING




    John, by the grace of God, King of England, Lord of Ireland, Duke of Normandy and Aquitaine, Count of Anjou, to all his faithful people who have desired to have Burgages in the township of Liverpool, greeting. Know ye that we have granted to all our faithful people who have taken Burgages in Liverpool that they may have all the liberties and free customs in the township of Liverpool which any Free Borough on the sea has in our land. And therefore we command you that securely and in our peace you come there to receive and inhabit our Burgages. And in witness hereof we transmit to you these our Letters Patent. Witness Simon dePateshill at Winchester on the twenty-eighth day of August in the ninth year of our reign.

    Hi Kev

    Nice to see these full colour images of the charter given to the town of Liverpool in 1207. I am quite used to black and white images of the charter and also enjoyed going to the Public Record Office in the 1960's and seeing some of the Liverpool charters which were then in glass cases. Each succeeding monarch I believe had to renew the charter. You had to pull on a cord to open up curtains to see the charter as I recall since the light would fade them. In 1957, at the time of the 750th celebration, I was given a softback book published on Liverpool history -- I was age nine then. Not sure if I still have the book. I was coming back to the United States on a Cunard liner (I believe the Media or Britannic) with my grandparents and I remember an American lady passenger named Miss Wright borrowed the book and spilled coffee on it! It wasn't irrepairably damaged but had the coffee stain on the edges of some pages.

    Thanks, Kev, I will look foward to seeing them. Some of the calligraphy on those old charters are a work of art in themselves, and the heraldry and pageantry of the seals is interesting as well.

    Default KING HENRY III 1229 CHARTER

    The traders in Liverpool soon wanted greater freedom. It happened in 1229 that King Henry III was in great financial difficulty and he was therefore very willing to sell further privileges. The inhabitants of Liverpool raised ten marks (around £6.50 at prices of that time) to buy a new charter of a very extensive kind.

    This charter was of the greatest importance in the history of the borough for it effectively remained the governing charter until the 17th century. It was much more elaborate and detailed than King John's grant. The rights entailed almost the highest degree of borough privileges. It included:

    · a formal grant to the burgesses (inhabitants of the borough with full municipal rights) of the privileges of a Free Borough for ever - this was a more formal and definite grant of powers than before to an existing body of burgesses

    · establishment of a borough independent of the shire or county especially for judicial purposes

    · increased trading privileges - not only exemption from tolls within the borough but also from all such tolls throughout the kingdom

    · formal empowerment to establish an association or guild merchant with privileges confirmed to members of the guild

    The Crown still had numerous rights and considerable property within the Borough, such as burgage rents, ferry dues and dues paid by 'foreign' merchants. These were substituted for a fixed payment to the King in a document signed the day after the charter, but this was not a permanent arrangement.

    King John in 1207 basically set the foundations for Liverpool to prosper more than most places at the time (we were lucky). The rights and privileges given to Liverpool enabled people to come here in their small groups first, then hundreds, thousands and thousands all adding to Liverpool's unique mix of cultures we know today.

    Default CHARLES I 1626 CHARTER

    CHARLES I 1626 CHARTER

    Liverpool was beginning to be increasingly prosperous. However, the rights of the burgesses were somewhat uncertain and open to challenge, being based on vague medieval formulae which were increasingly open to debate. Various applications for a new charter were made and eventually in 1626 Charles I granted one.

    It was the most important since that of Henry III because:

    · it authorised in more modern terms the powers of the borough

    · it decided the vexed question of incorporation, removing all doubts - Liverpool was made a 'body corporate and politic' with perpetual succession and whatever it had done previously as a body corporate held good

    · it secured all property which had been annexed

    · it settled the constitution of the borough with a mayor, bailiffs and the burgesses as the supreme authority

    · it brought the legal system of the town into order

    · it set up a commercial court for the recovery of mercantile debts

    TIMELINE - CHARLES I CHARTER

    Liverpool

    · population estimated at 1,000
    · ancient deer-park of Toxteth disafforested by Sir Richard Molyneux and divided into about 20 farms 1604.
    · Jeremiah Horrox, astronomer, born in Liverpool, becomes the first to observe the transit of Venus across the sun in 1639

    National

    · William Shakespeare dies 1616

    International

    · Thirty Years War begins in Europe 1618
    · Pilgrim Fathers arrive at Cape Cod on 'Mayflower' 1620
