Sir William Appleyard was thought of as a man of principal figure and fortune. He was, like his father Sir Bartholomew Appleyard, the Lord and patron of several Manors and Advowsons, respectively. He was eleven times Burgess in Parliment, three times Baliff of Norwich (1386, 1395, 1401), and six times Mayor (1403, 1404, 1405, 1411, 1412 and 1418); he being the first Mayor of Norwich (1403). In 1402, he was Escheator (tax collector) of Norfolk during the reign of Henry IV..
