      Maye 9 Mr Richard Barne alias Baron of the Worshipfull Companye of the Mercers, dyed 24 of Aprill & was buryed 9 of Maye in ye Mercers chapell. [In the margin : to ye church 5^]


      Description Will of Richard Barne or Barnes, Mercer of All Hallows Honey Lane, City of London
      Date 25 April 1598 PROB 11/91



      William Marche was succeeded as tenant by Richard Barnes in 1554; he paid the 6 rent until 1597. Barnes probably held on a lease to repair, but in 1565-6 the Drapers paid 1. 13s. 8 1/2/d. and contributed the materials for digging up and re-laying the watercourse running through the stables of Blossoms Inn to St. Lawrence Lane, partly in hard stone and partly planked. No further works at the company's cost are recorded. No renewals of Richard Barnes' lease are noted and it may have been a very long one, possibly that granted in 1537- 8. In his will of 1597, proved 1598, Richard Barne, citizen and mercer, parishioner of All Saints parish, left his messuage and buildings in Westcheap known as the Swan and the Harp, in which he carried on his trade of mercery, to his son Edward and his heirs. Edward Barnes paid the rent from 1597 to 1640. In 1611 he was granted a new lease of 21 years on the expiry of his old one, for the old rent of 6 and a fine of 200; the term was extended to 24 years in 1613 on his promise to spend money in repairs. The fine was paid by Michaelmas 1614. (fn. 126)
      In 1634 Edward Barnes was granted another 21-year lease of the messuage in Honey Lane from 1637, at 6 rent and 200 fine, which he paid in instalments in 1634-5 and 1636-7. In 1638 Mr. Barne paid tithe for a house in Honey Lane worth 16 p.a., and Mr. Nicholson, named immediately after him, paid tithe for a house worth 13 p.a. It is probable that these 2 houses together comprised 8C, which a few years later was known to have been divided. Two warehouses, valued at 4 p.a. each, may have belonged either to 8C or to 5. Edward Barnes was succeeded as rent-payer by Mrs. Katharine Barnes, widow, from 1640 to 1643. In 1643 William Daw succeeded, and the property was now described as one tenement now made 2. He paid the rent until 1649-50, when he assigned the lease to Margaret Nicon, who paid the rent until 1658.
