The History of Lincoln Waites

Livery

Lincoln Waits' Livery is an interesting but poorly documented topic. Cloaks, Hats and other clothing for Corporation Officers is mentioned often, but entries specifically mentioning Waits clothing are far less frequent. A likely explanation is that the Chamberlains' and Recorders' intentions may have been to include Waits in the general term "Officers", when recording entries about the provision of clothing.

The following list includes only those entries when Waits are specifically mentioned.
