The Worshipful Company of Scriveners
The present Company of Scriveners is forty-fourth in order of precedence of the Livery Companies of the City of London. Its formal establishment as a corporate body governed by ordinances granted by the Mayor and Aldermen of London dates from 26 September 1373. These mediaeval regulations and ordinances for the governance of the Scriveners Company (as for all other Livery Companies) were to ensure the integrity in business, and the competence in practice, of those engaged in the craft thus strengthening their position and enhancing the confidence of members of the public using their services. Notaries appear as members of the Company from 1392 onwards, when it issued new ordinances to coincide with the appointment by the Archbishop of Canterbury as Papal Legate of laymen as papal and imperial notaries.
