It is probable this may be a corruption of Hawkins, which is a common Devonshire name. This hitherto unknown token was presented to the writer by a gentleman of Guildford, who cannot remember how or when it came into his possession. It is the only specimen known to exist.

The village of Exebridge, to which Mr. Boyne assigned this token, is but a small hamlet, belonging to the parish of Morebath, with scarcely a shop in it; whilst it is well known that before the present bridge of Exeter was built, in 1770, the previous one had houses upon it, overhanging the river; and from the word "on" Exbridge, used by "Thomas Hitche," I believe this token certainly belongs to the old city.
