Footnotes

  • Robert Hanson was a successful London merchant and trader and was elected Alderman of the City in 1664. He was knighted 1st February 1665-66, and elected Sheriff in the same year. As Aldermanic Sheriff of the City of London he would have attended closely on the infamous Mayor Bludworth, whose predictions about the seriousness of the Great Fire proved so disastrously inaccurate. He became Master of the Grocers' Company in 1678, and Lord Mayor of London 1672-73. He died in 1680.
