  • Atherstone was an important centre for weaving and clothmaking.
    List of 16th Century Mancetter Parish Inventories compiled by M.J. Alexander
    William Reppington, 1545, weaver
    By the date it would seem most likely that this record ought to be associated with the predicted son of this William,
    but that William appears to be dispositioned closer to London and on more than one occasion his trade was referred to as a Salter.
    On the other hand this William still had closer ties to Amington and his brother Thomas was known to have been a Mercer (a dealer in expensive clothing).
    There are no William Repingtons alive in the peerage family at this time so this William, although he would have been in his 80s, seems most likely to have have been the Weaver in Atherstone.
