bullet  General Notes:

The Grosvener Museum in Chester has two plaques bearing the name of Robert Crossfield , who appears to have held the post of sherriff in 1878 and the post of mayor in 1880, These positions related not to the official city council but to a society entitled the honorable incorporation of the KIngs Arms Kitchen which was founded around 1770 . A group of prominent citizens who were dissatisfied with the effectiveness of the real city council, established this society to parody the existing city assembly, electing their own mayor , 2 sherriffs , recorder ,alderman and town clerk. Meetings involved debates, drinking and betting and were held in the mayor's parlour in the Kings Arms Kitchen of East Gate , Chester. The interior of the parlour is now displayed in the Grosvenor Museum , complete with the Mayor seat and plaques commemorating terms of office.
Occupation was confectioner
