Did you know...

Ed Balls’ ancestors were Norwich Freemen between 1404 and 1913, but the succession has lapsed and he is no longer eligible.

It’s an old tradition that freemen had the right to be hanged with a silk noose!

In 1289 Hugh de London was fined 12d ‘because he buys and sells in the city and is not of the freedom’

New freemen have to swear an oath to be ‘buxom’ to the mayor. This is a medieval way of declaring obedience and loyalty to the mayor.
