Rose de Burford

Woman of the day: Rose de Burford ?-1329 was married to a wool and spice merchant. She helped her husband with the business and took it over when he died. (It was common in the Middle Ages for a merchant's wife to help her husband run the business and it was common for him to leave it to her in his will as she would know how to run it). Rose died a very wealthy woman. http://www.localhistories.org/middleageswomen.html
