"Hugh Parrye"

Edmund Peckover, after the last-mentioned date, settled at Fakenham, where he joined the Society of Friends, and, owing to the persecuting spirit of the times, he suffered frequently for his religious principles.

Some of his family are buried in Norwich at the churches of St George of Colegate and St Martin-at-Palace, where there are tablets to them. Edmond Peckover, grocer, sone of Matthew Peckover, esquire, was sworn a freeman of Norwich in 1654. The house in which the issuer of this token resided is still a grocer's shop.
