The family of Bicknell was connected with the town of Wellington at an early period. Master William Biconyll, or Bicknell, priest, of Wells Cathedral, by his will, dated November 3, 1448, makes bequests to the church at Wellington, to his brother John, the Vicar, and the poor. The surname of Bicknell is supposed to be derived from the parish of Bickenhall, in the county of Somerset, which was formerly written Bicknell and Bycknell.

It is singular that the third initial does not occur on any of the Wells tokens. Were the issuers all bachelors, or did they not believe in "women's rights"?
