Higgler's Licences

July 1758 - April 1772

This is an index of 289 licences registered at the West Kent Quarter Sessions. The last licence was in April 1772.
Most say that the higgler "qualified for a common badger, lader, kidder, carrier, buyer and seller of fowls, butter, cheese, eggs, fish and other dead victuals (except game of the Kingdom) at any fair or market in the County for one year".
However, eleven of them specified that they were for the selling and buying of corn and grain instead and this is noted in the last column.
