Excerpt from The Historical Charters and Constitutional Documents of the City of London

This Charter2 not only confirmed to the citizens of London their ancient customs and immunities, but added to their jurisdiction in fee-farm the county of Middlesex, without homage, fealty, or service, on paying a yearly quit-rent of three hundred pounds. It gave them likewise the power of choosing a Sheriff and Justiciary from their own body, and of holding the Pleas of the Crown.

Prior to this grant, the citizens appear to have been wholly dependent on the will of the king; but their privilege being now in a great measure guarded, they aimed at further securing their customs by converting them into written laws; and their arts and mysteries, which had heretofore been kept up by prescription only, were now established into companies.
