M (Prescriptive: borough, mint) recorded 1086, mercatum (Darby, p. 369). The Domesday entry for Eaton Bishop (four and a half miles west of Hereford) refers to an exchange for land ‘in which the market now is’.

In 1230, the citizens of Hereford claimed that the town was being damaged by the market at Leominster, Herefordshire (q.v.) (CRR, xiiii, no. 595). In 1231, K Hen III prohibited the market at Hereford as a result of the Welsh campaign (CR, 1227–31, p. 537).

The hide market (mercatum cororium) was to be moved in Nov 1262 (Rev. R.G. Griffiths trans, Registrum Thome de Cantilupo, episcopi Herefordensis (Cant. and York Soc, London, 1907), p. 93).

Capes trans., The Register of Richard de Swinfield, bishop of Hereford (A.D. 1283–1317) (Hereford, 1909) p. 48). A fair was recorded in 1167, 1168, 1169 and 1171 (PR, 13 Hen II, p. 76; PR, 14 Hen II, p. 117; PR, 15 Hen II, p. 142; PR, 17 Hen II, p. 98; PR, 18 Hen II, p. 3). An unspecified number of fairs were recorded in 1170 (PR, 16 Hen II, p. 59). On 6 May 1241, K Hen III extended the fair of Ethelbert, held by P[eter] bp of Hereford, which had previously been held on the vigil of Ethelbert from noon until the evening, on the day of Ethelbert and on the three days following, granting that the length of the fair be extended for three more days and that if any of the six [sic] days of the fair was a feast day, that day should not be reckoned. Mandate in pursuance to the sh of Hereford (CChR, 1226–57, p. 259).

Griffiths trans, Registrum Thome de Cantilupo, episcopi Herefordensis (Cant. and York Soc, London, 1907), p. 93).

On 23 Mar 1227, K Hen III granted the citizens of Hereford a fair on f+2 Denys (CChR, 1226–57, p. 25). Letter to sh of Herefordshire regarding the fair, 26 Mar 1227 (RLC, ii, p. 178b). In the summer of 1284, a jury stated that the king’s fair on the feast of Dionisius at Hereford was being damaged by the A of Reading’s fair on v+3 Michael (29 Sept) at Leominster, Herefordshire (q.v.). The fair at Leominster was therefore quashed (Abb Plac, p. 206b).
