Merchant's Guilds (or Companies) were established primarily for the purpose of obtaining and maintaining the privilege of carrying on trade. Having secured this privilege the guilds guarded their monopoly jealously. The organization of the merchant guilds is known from the constitutions or guild rolls that have survived. These documents are only four in number, but fortunately refer to towns in four different parts of England. They are the guild statutes of Berwick and of Southampton, and the guild rolls for Leicester and Totnes. This paper provides a wealth of information on the Totnes Guild.
