Late Sixteenth Century English Given Names

Notes on the name Maurice

Maurice: Maurice Tymmerman, alderman of the Styllyard (i.e., the Steelyard), London, was probably not English in view of his position and his Low German or Netherlandish surname; the Steelyard was where the Merchants of the Hanse (Hanseatic League) had their London trading establishment.
