Newmarket

The tokens bearing the name of this town are placed by Boyne among the Suffolk tokens; however, as one of the two parishes of Newmarket is in this county, and the portion of Suffolk in which the other parish stands is surrounded by Cambridgeshire, they are all placed here.

As Clare Market, London, is called New Market on the tokens, it is doubtful whether all the above belong to this town. (See also Boyne, London, Clare Market, Nos. 513 and 518.)
