Biography

From 1382 to 1415 Marchaunt paid to the bishop of Winchester’s receiver 4d. a year for a plot of wasteland next to his own property in Fore Street, Taunton, and from 1384 a further 6d. for a second plot opposite John Northmore’s* house, on the understanding that he did not build on it, although he was licensed to do just this in 1387.
