Company Archives

The Company’s historical records are stored at the Guildhall Library. These include a copy of an order by the Court of Aldermen requesting the farriers of London to form a guild to regulate the craft and the Charter granted by Charles II in 1674. 

Lists of apprentices, freemen, and Liverymen from 1610 onwards may be of assistance to anyone trying to trace their ancestors, and application may be made to the Library to view these.

The library is open Monday - Saturday, 9.30 - 5pm; telephone number 020 7332 1862.
