  • ID: I04982
  • Name: John le CHAUCER , Vintner of London 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1312 in Ipswich, Suffolk, England 1
  • Death: 1366 in London, Middlesex, England 1
  • Note: John Chaucer himself was a citizen and vinter of London, the son of Robert le Chaucer, who, in 1310, was collector of the customs on wine, and who had property at Ipswich and elsewhere in Suffolk. In 1349, John was certainly married to an Agnes whose maiden surname is unknown, who survived him and, in 1367, married again: therefore, unless she was the vintnerís second wife, she must have been Chaucerís mother. The father seems to have had some link of service with the royal household, and the poet was connected with it more or less all his days. Probably he was born in Thames Street, London, where his father had a house at the time of his death in 1366.
