Orders of the leet held at Coventry on Thursday in the feast of St. Dionysius, 17 Edward IV before John Seman', mayor, and Henry Marler and William Tailler, sheriffs and bailiffs. The main business was to make provision for the election from thenceforth in every ward of a suitable man to be called Alderman of the Ward. [See Warws. V.C.H. viii, p.263].
