Pearly Kings and Queens, known as pearlies, are an organised charitable tradition of working class culture in London, England

Pearly Kings and Queens, known as pearlies, are an organised charitable tradition of working class culture in London, England. The practice of wearing clothes decorated with mother-of-pearl buttons is first associated with Henry Croft (1861-1930), an orphan street sweeper who collected money for charity. At the time, London costermongers (street traders) were in the habit of wearing trousers decorated at the seams with pearl buttons that had been found by market traders.

Pearly Kings and Queens. Scotland’s symbols and traditions. The Night of Hogmanay. Nowhere else in Britain is the arrival of the New Year celebrated so wholeheartedly as in Scotland. New Year, or Hogmanay, celebrations in Scotland rival Christmas for their gaiety. Hogmanay is the survival of the festivities, which, in medieval times, centred on the Twelfth Night (January 6th), which the Scottish people called Uphalieday. In addition, all outstanding bills are paid, overdue letters written and borrowed books returned. At least, that is the idea! Most important of all, there must be plenty of good things to eat.

The kings, including the King of Scots, King of Strathclyde and various princes of Wales, are said to have signalled their allegiance to Edgar by rowing him in his state barge across the River Dee. EDWARD THE MARTYR 975 – 978 Eldest son of Edgar, Edward was crowned king when aged just 12. Although supported by Archbishop Dunstan, his claim to the throne was contested by supporters of his much younger half-brother Aethelred.

The Pearly Kings and Queens were started by Henry Croft in 1875. Croft was an orphan born in a St. Pancras workhouse and raised in an orphanage in Somers Town, London, which he left at the age of 13 to start making his own way in the world. The longest continually-active organisation is Pearly Guild, which has existed since 1902.
