More names were formerly visible and Sympson who was clerk of works in the 1730s & 40s recorded those of Helias Pictor, Walterus Brand, Wilhelmus Baldwin, Ricardus De Ponte, Robert Saris and Wilhemus Paris.
Brand was at several times in the mid 13C one of the two keepers of the fabric.
Richard De Ponte and William De Paris were both mayors of Lincoln.
Helias Pictor was presumably one of the painters at work in the Cathedral.
