      Date 08 May 1629
      PROB 11/155

      1525 to 1565
      .... In 1524 Bartholomew Baron, mercer, obtained a lease from the company of the tenement and seld called the Crown for a term of 50 years from 1525 at 6 rent. Baron was to be responsible for repairs and within 3 years was to pay 100 towards the cost of new tenements, shops, and warehouses there; he was only to let or grant parts of the property to freemen of the Mercers' Company. His rent was said to have been reduced from 7. 14s., which had been the annual total received from tenants between 1517 and 1519, ...In 1529 this lease was assigned to John Hare, mercer, who was probably living there in 1541 and 1544. .... 33 was sold to John Hare and John Blundell, mercers, and their heirs and assigns for 120, a sum which was presumably calculated as 20 years' purchase,.... At the time of this grant John Hare occupied the property. He continued to live there until his death in 1565, when he left his dwelling house called the Crown with its shops, cellars, yards, and warehouses to his son Richard Hare and his male heirs, with successive remainders to his younger sons Hugh, John, and Thomas and their male heirs, and then to his eldest son Ralph Hare and his heirs. (fn. 18)
