Other information

John Cremer consistently spelled his surname "Cremer", not "Creamer", when signing three separate depositions in the High Court of Admiralty.

He was the apprentice of James Bartram, fishmonger, who had a shop in Thamestreete.[17] His deposition in 1655 makes reference to events in 1644, when he was ca. 15 years old and apprenticed to James Bartram.[18]

James Bartram appears in a listing of inhabitants of London in 1638 for the parish of Saint Magnus by London Bridge. The listing shows multiple houses and shops under the name James Bartram. One house and shop is recorded as being on Thames Street Westward on the South Side, with a rent of £14. Another house and shop, separated by entries for four other men, is shown at the same location, with a rent of £8. A third shop is shown on New Fish Street, Westside, with a rent of £4.[19]

Neither John Cremer [alt. Creamer] nor James Bartram appear in the 1666 hearth tax for the parish of Saint Magnus by London Bridge.

The archive of the Fishmongers' Company is held at the Guildhall Library site, but under London Metropolitan Archives administration. It contains a series of apprenticeship registers (GL Mss 5576). The first volume covers the period 1614-1650.[20][21]
