William Gardner Warton b 1838 in Lambeth FREEDOM papers residence croydon

London, England, Freedom of the City Admission Papers. The three meanings of the word Freeman are: a man who did not have to pay trade taxes and shared in the profits of his borough, a person free of feudal service who had served their apprenticeship and could trade in their own right, and anyone who was a member of a City Guild. "Freedom of the Company" meant that a person had earned freemen status within the company or guild and could then apply for Freedom of the City. The tradition of becoming a Freeman is still practised today and is a point of pride for both men and women though the practical reasons for membership are no longer necessary.
