Should King ueorg-e or England de
cide to adopt ancient customs at his
coming- coronation there will be soma
qnaint and medieval ceremonies on
that occasion. A nobleman of the
manor of Heydon. in Essex, is entitled
to the honor of bearing a towel for the
king when the monarch wasbjfea for the
banquet The holder of tja manor of
Addington, In Surrey, I5, charged rith
the dnty of serving y mens of gerout
or dlUegrout to tfca sovereign before
the Immediate fotaalities of the ban
quet ar began.
The chief tyftler of England, a post ;
of no mean,fconor In spite of the title, '
has. according to a well established ;
claim, tile right to call upon the lord j
mayor and twelve citizens of London j
for Jich aid as is necessary on the :
treat dar. j
There were two dlstlngnished claim- i
cmts for the post of chief butler at the !
coronation of King Edward In 1002. !
One was the Duke of Norfolk and the
other Lord Mowbray and Stourton. In
presenting their claims to the office
these men quoted the records of pre
vious coronations for several centuries
and produced musty court documents
of great antiquity, which were submit
ted in proof of the righteousness of
their contentions. The Duke of Nor
folk Is the premier duke of England
and the moat prominent Roman Catho
lic. He is also very wealthy.
The court of claims, which has to do
with the settlement of procedure at
the coronation function, is now in ses
sion. It Is guided in Its decisions by
established precedent. The court dates
hack to the reign of Richard II, 1377.
when John Gaunt, duke of Lancaster,
the lord high steward, kept his court
In Whitehall. Beginning with the cor
onation of Henry VIII.. commissioners
were appointed to decide the questions,
and these commissioners were later
succeeded by the court of claims. The
only record of the court i the corona
tion rolls, on which the claims are set
down in some detail.
At the coronation of King Edward
there were three claimants for the hon
or of carrying the great spurs. The
court refused to allow the claims of
any of the three, leaving It open for
the present court to restore the right
to a claimant. Carrying the spurs
meant more in the days when English
kings were fighters than it does now.
The king has plenty of spnrs. but they
are without the glamour which cornea
with victories in the field.
M4IVY RIVAL CLAIMANTS.
Most of the claims of riarit were al
lowed subject to the king's approval,
but In some cases there were rival
claimants. For Instance, both the
Duke of Newcastle and the Uart of
Shrewsbury claimed the right of sup
plying the glore for the king's right
band and supporting his majesty's
right arm while he Is holding the scep
ter, and the first named claim was al
lowed. Three claims were mads to the office
of hereditary ctandard bearer of Scot
land, the petitioners be Leg the Earl of
Lauderdale. Henry Scrymgeour Wed
derbum and the Rev. R. C. Wedder
hurn. Mr. Wedderburn's claim was al
lowed, and he was commanded to at
tend the coronation and did so. The
Earl of Lauderdale, however, chal-.
lenged the decision by bringing an ac
tion against the successful petitioner
In the court of session. Scotland. He
succeeded there, but on appeal to the
house of lords the question wis decid
ed against him.
Another interesting claim was that
of the Walker trustees to exercise the
office of usher of the white rod, which
was bequeathed by Fir Tatrick Walker,
a former holder, and held by trustees
Incorporated by act of parliament.
They were allowed to be present by
deputy to be appro red by his majesty.
A partial revlral of an ancient prlr- ,
ilege was seen in the decision by which I
the barons of the Cinque Ports were j
allowed to carry a canopy over the ;
king should his majesty be pleased to I
hare a canopy. i
