The Innholders are one of about a hundred livery companies in the city. Their origins lie in the mediaeval guilds, which where formed under licence of the crown and the corporation to regulate their crafts, trades or services within the square mile.
Many are incorporated by Royal Charter and together they comprise the electorate from which the Lord Mayor, the two Sheriffs, and some other Officers of the city are chosen. The Innholders stand 32nd in the precedence of livery companies and have provided five Lord Mayors.
