List of Mayors

The Chairman of the Company. In modern times the mayor has been appointed for one year only, but historically there have been a number of individuals who served as Mayor on two, three or four times. There are a small number of families where fathers, brothers and sons have become mayors. (The Legg, Goodhart and Drew families are prominent, with a Goodhart still a freeman of the Company in 2018). With the Upper Clerk and the Court of Assistants, the mayor runs the Company.
