About Adam White

Adam White, a "walker" (another name for a Fuller, who cleaned cloth) who became freeman of York in 1365. Resident of the city of York.

"Freedom of the city" in this context is connected to the medieval concept of "free status", when city and town charters drew a distinction between freemen and vassals of a feudal lord. As such, freemen actually pre-date 'boroughs'. Early freedom of the boroughs ceremonies had great importance in affirming that the recipient enjoyed privileges such as the right to trade and own property, and protection within the town.
