Any 16th century army relied heavily on civilian providers of essential goods and services for many critical needs. These victualers or “sutlers” (a term which actually originated in the Lowe Countries as soetelaar) included brewers, merchants, crafts persons, cooks, laundresses, armourers and much more.
