The Real Dick Whittington
Showing painter Carol’s love of cats and stories, the cat here has its work cut out! Richard Whittingdon lived c1350-1423 with 1398 on the ceramic. Moving to London, he became a mercer of velvets and silks, married Alice Fitzwarren, was Lord Mayor under three Kings and lent money to them all! He also became Sir Richard, an MP and Sheriff of London. His charity gave to the needy then and amazingly still gives now, with funds distributed by the Mercers Livery Company - a ceramic in 2015!
