Biography

Little is known of Man before June 1414, when he sold a house in Salisbury. In March 1415 he contributed £1 towards the £100 loan made by the city to Henry V. Then, during his term of office as reeve, he was twice returned to Parliament, in November 1415 and March 1416. However, as regards the second occasion, he apparently did not attend the full session, for his expenses were paid for only 31 of the 44 days the Parliament lasted.4 In September the same year he was appointed an executor of a fellow citizen, John Becket*. By the end of 1417 he was a member of the convocation of Salisbury, and regularly attended meetings thereafter for the next 25 years.
