Woolmer, Edward

Edward was described, in 1680, as being a ‘dapper apothecary’ and a firm royalist. He leased a house next to the White Hart and also the Golden Lion, both in Stall Street. In 1703 he leased the Town Common (‘laying the hills at his own charge’) until 1713 or possibly later, and this included the riding area known as ‘The Ring’. He was involved with others in paving the Churchyard. His association with the city council includes being a councilman (April 1678 – 1684, August 1688, displaced in September 1688, but in office again from (?) – 1705), constable (1683 – 1684, 1688, and 1695 – 1696), bailiff (1680 – 1681), chamberlain (1703 – 1705), alderman (October 1705 – 1721), mayor (1706 – 1707 and 1720 – May 1721), and JP (1707 – 1708, December 1710 – 1711, and 1714 – 1715).
