14 December 1446

Elections of churchwardens of St. Margaret's, which may be held every year if necessary, are to be made by 8 persons, with the mayor nominating the first 2 electors who shall choose the remaining 6. Anyone elected and refusing office shall pay 13s.4d.

[The borough had long been appointing churchwardens, so the principal issue here seems more with affirming that right and setting out the practice, perhaps in the face of some discord on the matter.]
