Origins and Name
The Merchant Taylors’ Company is one of the ‘Great Twelve’ livery companies of the City of London. Its origins can be traced back to 1300 or earlier, and it has occupied its present site in Threadneedle Street since around 1347. Originally known as the Company of Taylors and Linen-Armourers, it was renamed by a Royal Charter of 1503 as the Guild of Merchant Taylors of the Fraternity of St John the Baptist of the City of London. It has spelt ‘Tailors’ as ‘Taylors’ ever since.
