5 September 1363

Whereas previously the election of mayor, chamberlains, clerk and bailiff was held each Michaelmas [September 29], henceforth elections shall be held on the Friday following the Decollation of St. John [August 29], or on that feast-day if it falls on a Friday. The officers elected shall take up office on Michaelmas. On which days every burgess is expected to attend without being summoned.

[This ordinance, which is recorded immediately following those of September 1358, on a similar subject, is deleted, suggesting its repeal at some point.]
