Mainly, he was a "whittawer", or, dresser of white leather. He would"tawes" the hides of deer
and horses, and also goats and sheep and hounds, by imbuing the pelts in Alum and salt. A whittawer appears in "The Merry Wives of Windsor". John Shakespeare was also the town's bailiff from1569, but we are indebted to the Shakesperean scholar Edmund Malone, for "Sorting out" the Shakespeares in the 15th-16th centuries as they lay thick on the ground!>
thanked the writer.
