  • .... Agnes Wyman was a considerable York heiress, being the only child of John de Barden, who was mayor of York in 1378. Her mother was daughter and heiress of Thomas Thirkell, another wealthy York citizen. Her husband, Henry Wyman, ᵈ was an eminent citizen and goldsmith of York in the reigns of Richard II. and Henry IV. He was senior bailiff of the city in the twelfth year of Richard II. was afterwards made an alderman, and in the eighth year of Henry IV. he was elected lord mayor, and discharged the duties of that high municipal office during three consecutive years. At this period York was distinguished for the sumptuous manner in which the several incorporated trades and crafts of the city celebrated the religious festival of Corpus Christi, by the exhibition of pageants and miracle plays, which every year attracted many persons of rank and importance to witness their representation. ᵉ The Wymans appear to have taken great interest in these solemnities. In the year 1399, when an order was made by the civic authorities for limiting the number of places at which the Corpus Christi plays were to be performed in their progress through the city on the day of the festival, "the door of Henry Wyman in Conyng-strete" was one of the twelve places selected. During Henry Wyman's mayoralty in 1408, the guild or fraternity of Corpus Christi, which afterwards acquired an extensive celebrity, was established in York, and both Agnes Wyman and her husband were among its earliest members. Although this was subsequent to the death of Archbishop Scrope ᶠ it is most probable that the project of forming this society, which was instituted for regulating the solemnities and promoting the due observance of a great religious festival, had been commenced in his lifetime, and was carried forward under his sanction. The presentation of the cup by Agnes Wyman must have
  • taken place soon after the formation of the guild. She died in 1413, having survived her husband about two years.ᵍ
