The origins of the London Livery Companies are thought to go back to the time of the Norman invasion of Britain in 1066 but the earliest record of a Livery Company existing is 1130 when the Weavers were mentioned in the Pipe Roll (financial records of England) and gained their Charter from King Henry II in 1155. These early Livery Companies were similar to the fraternities and guilds or mysteries that flourished throughout Europe for many centuries. The term 'mystery' is still in use today and derives from the Latin 'misterium' meaning 'professional skill'.
