Gilds and companies of craftsmen were a great feature of late medieval and early modern life. Outside the city of London few of them lasted beyond the seventeenth century. At Exeter, however, the Company of Weavers, Fullers (Tuckers) and Shearmen, though much changed, still survives today. The Company's records, together with those of the city of Exeter, made it possible to tell the story of the progress of this body of men, and to place them in their social, economic and political context, from the medieval fraternity which built the Chapel of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (later Tuckers Hall), through the Tudor craft gild and its emergence from the Reformation crisis, to the Stuart incorporation, and so finally to the Victorian and twentieth-century charitable trust. As such, Tuckers Hall represents a continuous and significant thread in the history of this provincial capital over a period of over five hundred years.
