A token was issued by Mary Kent, at Soham, in Cambridgeshire, in 1666, and by John Kent of Hornswell. As no Hornswell is to be found in any part of England, it is presumed that Herringswell, in Suffolk, was the intended place. The token is, therefore, here given, as well as under Soham. The Kent family is still residing in Herringswell.

This token, although placed in Ackerman's "London Tradesmen's Tokens", p. 112, to Hoxton, near London, is, I think, more correctly a Suffolk one.
