Sheriffs of Nottingham

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2015-07-23. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-11-17.

Among the chief contents of this page are lists of...

  • suggested originals of the traditional Sheriff of Nottingham character
  • records relating to historical sheriffs of Nottinghamshire
  • historical sheriffs of Nottinghamshire.


The latter will in time, it is hoped, become complete for the medieval period. From 1449, if not earlier, to 1834 a sheriff was appointed for each of Nottingham's two boroughs, but since 1835, when the boroughs were abolished, only one sheriff is appointed each year.[1] For most of the medieval period Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire formed one bailiwick. Unless otherwise indicated, sheriffs in office before 1449 can be assumed to have served this larger bailiwick.

I will add more sheriffs to the list as I find them. The list is based on both primary and secondary sources; little attempt having been made to verify the information or resolve apparent conflicts. The year-by-year arrangement makes it possible to list potentially conflicting items of information separately, which should alert the reader to the presence of possible errors in my sources. However, as one sheriff may have been temporarily replaced by another, it cannot in such cases be assumed without further research that one or more of my sources is in error. There are cases where one source has a given sheriff under one year while another source has him under the following year. In such cases one of the sources is probably mistaken and a likley cause could be misreading of the MS source or a slip in the conversion from regnal to calendar year.

A note on terminology

The Old English word 'scīrgerefa', 'shire reeve', developed into the Middle English and Modern English word 'sheriff'. However, within ten years after the Conquest, William I had replaced all English sheriffs with Normans for whom he chose "the title of Vicomte, because there were similarities between the vicomte's office in Normandy and that of the sheriff in England".[2] The Middle Latin term 'vice-comes', the equivalent of Old French 'visconte' (or 'vicomte' as in Modern French), persisted in (Middle) Latin writings produced in Britain but was largely replaced in the English language by the native term, which had reasserted itself within a hundred years or so.[3] 'Viscount', the Modern English reflex of Old French 'visconte', may refer to a person 'acting as the deputy or representative of a count or earl in the administration of a district; in English use spec. a sheriff or high sheriff'.[4] This, of course, is only one of its significations, and nowadays it certainly is not the most common one. The obsolete English word 'vice-count', recorded 1461-1673,[5] meant 'viscount', but apparently it did not mean 'viscount' in the specific sense of 'sheriff'.

Occasionally modern literary scholars choose to translate the Middle Latin word 'vice-comes' occurring in chronicle accounts of Robin Hood as 'viscount' (in quotation marks) even when it manifestly refers to Robin Hood's old foe of Nottingham. I am pretty certain this is good old ignorance at work, but since the English word 'viscount' is now rarely used to refer to a sheriff – and Google did not know a single occurrence of the exact phrase 'Robin Hood and the Viscount of Nottingham' when I wrote this – modern readers are left with the impression that there must be something somewhat wrong or deeply right about the Latin chronicle's 'vice-comes': they will likely begin to think that the chronicler misunderstood something or that, on the contrary, he knew something we don't and Robin Hood's enemy was in fact (originally) a viscount in the current sense of a 'member of the fourth order of the British peerage, ranking between an earl and a baron.'[4] The former is not the case, the latter may be, but the chronicler's use of the term 'viscount' is not a sign of it. As noted by the OED, 'vice-comes' was the usual Middle Latin rendering of the English word "sheriff"[6]. The former should accordingly be translated as the latter unless it manifestly means something else. Incidentally, as the OED notes with regard to the word 'viscount' used in the sense of a 'member of the fourth order of the British peerage':[7] 'This use of the title dates from the reign of Henry VI, when John, Baron Beaumont, was created Viscount Beaumont by letters patent of 12th February, 1440.' It was thus a brand new invention at the time when a Scottish canon far away in an abbey on the Firth of Forth wrote about Robin Hood and a certain 'vice-comes'. He could hardly have heard of it, and it certainly was not what he meant by the Latin term.

Suggested originals of the traditional character

The following historical officials have been suggested as the inspiration for the traditional character:

  • Philip Mark, sheriff of Nottingham 1209-24, had the custody of Sherwood forest 1212-17.[8]
  • Brian de Lisle, sheriff of Yorkshire 1233-34, chief forester of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire 1207-17.[8]
  • John de Segrave, keeper of Nottingham castle from 1308 to 1325, justice of the forest beyond the Trent from 1308 to 1315.[9]
  • Robert Ingram, sheriff of Nottingham from 26 November 1322 to 27 March or 1 June 1323, from 16 February 1327 to 16 November 1328 and from 10 January to 24 February 1334.[10]
  • Sir Henry de Faucumberg, sheriff of Nottingham from 29 November 1318 to 5 November 1319 and from 27 March or 1 June 1323 to the Easter of 1325,[10] sheriff of Yorkshire from April 1325 to 30 September 1327 and from 16 August 1328 to 5 December 1330, keeper of Nottingham castle from 4 October 1325 to mid-December of that year, keeper of York castle from 1327 to 5 December 1330.[11]Also see next section.
  • John de Oxenford, sheriff of Nottinghamshire from February to March 1334, from July 1334 to June 1335, and from March 1336 to March 1339.[12]

  3. Gladwin, ibid., implies that the Latin term was also replaced in the Latin vocabulary by (a latinized form of the ME reflex of the OE word) 'scīrgerefa' after the reign of Henry II (1154-89). Presumably what she meant was that it was replaced by the English term in the English language. It demonstrably persisted in Latin as written in Britain during the Middle English period. OED notes, s.n. 'sheriff': 'After the Conquest, the office of sheriff was continued, that title being retained in English documents, while in Latin and French the usual term was vice-comes, viscounte, which had been applied to similar functionaries in Normandy.'
