This was discovered during the recent [1891] excavations in Duke Street, Richmond, Surrey, at a depth of eight feet, together with some pottery, and is in the possession of Mr Cockburn.

"One Luke Shynnel occupied a seat in the church in 1650," according to "Richmond Notes," March, 1865.

The following entry appears in the parish registers of Isleworth:

"Buried at Isleworth, Dec. 27, 1642, Katherine, wife of Luke Chinar."
"Married at same, Feb. 6, 1644-5, Luke Chinar and Rose -----."

Obviously Robert King kept the King's Head Inn at the Ferry, perhaps on the site of the persent inn of the same sign. About twenty years previously one William Kinge occupied the Richmond Ferry under the Protector's commissioners at an annual rent of one mark.

He died October 19, 1688.

In the Will Office is the will of Robert King, dated September 5, 1668, of Richmod, victualler:

"He bequeaths to his wife, Mary, all that messuage now in the occupation of Thos. Barnes, commonly called by the name or sign of the Waterman Arms. To his brother John's four children, John, Mary, Elizabeth, and William, £5 each. To his sister, Margaret Silver, £10. To his cousin, Elizabeth Coydell, £4. To his cousin, Anne Buckwell, £5, all the premises in Richmond to Mary his wife, for her life, and at her death to his brother, John King, and Elizabeth his wife. Executrix, Mary, his wife. Witnesses, Thos. Hallowell, William Farley, and Walter Smith."

In the Hearth-tax of 15th Charles II, No. 188-481, is the charge of: "Robert King, of Richmond, eight hearths."

The three tokens [one a halfpenny] of Garforth are very extraordinary. We cannot understand why a man in so small a village as Ripley should have issued three tokens, each bearing a different coat of arms. We presume when he issued No. 236 [the halfpenny] he was a bachelor, but Nos. 237, 238 point to two marriages, one with a wife whose initial is A, and the other whose initial is E. Neither of the three tokens is dated, and No. 238 stands in an absolute unique position in bearing the coat of armour of Christ's Hospital, leading us to surmise that the issuer was educated at that magnificent foundation, and gratefully adopted on his token its armorial bearings.
