The company of leathersellers was a brotherhood of ancient standing, having been incorporated in the 6th year of Richard II. They were subsequently re-incorporated by a charter from king Henry VI. in 1442, by the style of The wardens and society of the mystery or art of leathersellers of the city of London. And, by a grant from king Henry VII. the wardens of this company were empowered to inspect sheep, lamb, and calf leather, throughout the kingdom, in order to prevent frauds in those commodities. It is a livery company. The corporation is governed by a prime and three wardens, and twenty-six assistants. Since their hall has been pulled down, this company meets in a house in Little St. Helen's, belonging to themselves, but at present let on lease.
