    Since Crook was neither a new member nor a warden in the three years in which he is reimbursed for dinner, he may have been involved in providing food and drink for the occasion.

    The officers of the guild include the elected warden and underwarden, who served for a year but were eligible for reelection, and a number of 'searchers' (that is, inspectors). Most of the payments recorded in the guild's minute book concern the twice yearly warden's dinners, though dinners were also held to welcome new guild members. The accounting of disbursements ends in 1619.
