Nottingham Mayors

This list of mayors of Nottingham was compiled in 1751 by Charles Deering M.D. in his book Nottinghamia Vetus et Nova, or an Historical Account of the Ancient and present State of the Town of Nottingham. He describes the list up to the year 1598 as being 'imperfect' and that from 1600 forwards as being 'more perfect' - presumably an indication of his confidence in its accuracy.
