Database of London's Livery Companies




The project began in 2008 with creating the database of the Clothworkers' Company, Apprenticeship and Freeman records, and has since added ten other companies. 




Most worshipful companies of trades started as an association of artisans that set regulations for the trade, kept track of the doings of apprenticeships and masters, and paid for funerals. Many are now social and charitable associations.
