1) A dealer in small wares.
1413 Johanna Calthorn, uphalder, York
1417 that na upphalder wyrk in girdelercrafte, York. Elspeth Veale said the word was used of those who traded in used skins and furs and this close link is confirmed in early but undated ordinances of the skinners: Item que tous gentz uphalders qi vendent fururers deiez la dite cite ou les suburbes soient contributours appaier a lour pagyne de Corpore Christi, York. In a later version of this ordinance, probably from the early fifteenth century, is a reference to every uphaldster that sellis eny furrez.
