Aldermen et al. in Westminster, and St Paul's churchyard, London - 29 October, 1557

from A London Provisioner's Chronicle, 1550-1563:

The twenty-ninth day of October did my new lord mayor [Thomas Curtes] take his oath at Westminster, and all the crafts of London in their barges and the aldermen. And afterward, landed at Paul's wharf and at the Paul's churchyard where the pageant stood and the bachelors with their satin hoods and a sixty poor men in gowns and targets and javelins in their hands and the trumpets and the waits playing unto Guildhall. And there dined.
