The Common-crier.

 

It belongs to the common-crier as serjeant at arms, (which office is united to the other,) to summon all executors and administrators of freemen to appear, and to bring in inventories of the personal estates of freemen, within months after their decease; and he is to have notice of the appraisements. He is also to attend the lord mayor with the mace on those days on which his lordship wears scarlet robes, and also at the courts of aldermen. He had his dwelling allowed him in Aldersgate. This office is executed by Samuel Beddome, esq.

[] As freemen's wills are now proved in the Consistory or Prerogative courts, this part of the duty has become obsolete.
