Bailiff, Northampton Mich. 1406-7.
Very little is known about this shadowy figure, whose trade at the time of his appointment as bailiff of Northampton was that of rope-making. He witnessed the borough elections to the Parliament of 1410, and was himself returned ten years later, but otherwise his career remains undocumented.
