Apparently there was a Merchants' Company in Darlington, which prevented all persons trading there who had not served a seven years' apprenticeship. Henry Shaw not having served such apprenticeship, had a special license granted him, in 1661, to trade there, by the Bishop of Durham, "being informed that Shaw was a free Boroughman of Darlington, where he and his ancestors had sold groceries and other wares, that he was of good fame amongst his neighbours, and had no other trade to support his wife and many children, having only one small house at Darlington."
