The Beadles of London
is a new web site dedicated to acknowledging and recording the contributions of the Beadles to the Livery Companies of the City of London.
We want to tell the history of the Beadle across the years and to give examples of the work of the Beadle in the 21st century in words and pictures.
If you have any documents or images which would help tell the story of the Livery Company Beadle please get in touch.
All of the Livery Companies have detailed records of past Masters, Wardens and Clerks but the role of the Beadles has received less attention. We would like to include names and dates of holders of the posts through the ages (see Rolls of Honour)
Any information would be appreciated as we try to construct a lasting record of the unsung, and usually under-paid stalwarts of the Livery Companies.
We are also pleased to include details of the work of The Ward Beadles and the activities of The Guild of Freemen
If you would like to contribute material or a link please contact
