Henry II of England:

Grant of a Gild to the Tanners of Rouen, 1170

Henry, by the grace of God, King of England, Duke of Normandy and Aquitaine, and Count of Anjou, to his earls, barons, justiciars, sheriffs, ministers, and all his faithful followers, greeting.

Be it known that I have granted and confirmed with this my charter to my tanners of Rouen their gild and tan and oil, and all the gild's customs and duties, freely and quietly, fully and honorably; and (I have commanded) for the sake of the service which those tanners do me that no one shall ply their craft in Rouen, nor within the district of Rouen except with their permission. Wherefore, I wish and firmly command that no one molest nor disturb them, nor take action against their craft except before me.
