This society was incorporated by king Edward IV. in the year 1463, by the name of The master and keepers of the art and mystery of tallow-chandlers of the city of London.

This company in former times dealt not only in candles, but in oil, vinegar, butter, hops, soap, &c. They were, in the 3rd of Henry VIII. authorised to search for and destroy all corrupt oil.

In the reign of Edward VI. anno 1551, the tallow chandlers of London, upon some disgust (perhaps upon the city's setting too low a price on their commodities) refused to sell any, by an universal consent. Orders upon this were taken by the king and council, commanding them to sell their candles, and some of them were sent to prison.

It is a livery company, and is governed by a master, four wardens and court of assistants. The hall of this company is in Dowgate hill.
