The Calendar of Letter Books of the City of London tell us that Henry de Gloucester was an Alderman in 1312. Extra biographical information is given in "Two Early London Subsidy Rolls", which states that he held a shop in the Goldsmithery in 1305, was son of William and Willelma,
owned shops and rents in St Vedast Foster and St Michael, and was alderman for Lime Street ward from 1300 to 1318. It also suggests that his father was William de Gloucester, goldsmith ff 1252.
