This book tells the story not only of the trade of the joiners, but of the people involved in it, both men and women; from Lewis Stockett, the Master of Works to Elizabeth I who was responsible for securing the Company's Royal Charter in 1571, to John Wilkes, the radical activist who became the Lord Mayor of London, to Mary Wyan, an orphan apprenticed to female joiner Elizabeth Storey in 1738 but who went on to marry the son of an American senator and relocated to Virginia. This livery company has a long, varied, and colourful history, and is still active in promoting and sponsoring the crafts of joinery and wood carving today.
