17th-Century Farthing Trade Tokens
By the revision of this county the total number of tokens has been increased from 144 in the original edition of this
work to 191. Two tokens are now omitted, viz., that of Nathaniel Sweet, Austrey; and one of Kineton, John Whitroe's,
both having been assigned to Devonshire. Three additional places which issued tokens in the seventeenth century
have to be added, viz., Griff, Lapworth, and Tysoe. For the interesting notes on the Birmingham families we have
been indebted to the very great kindness of Mr. Joseph Hill, of that town. The Vicar of Tanworth (the Rev. W.
Macgregor) and the Rector of Rugby (the Rev. J. Murray) also very kindly searched their respective registers, and
sent us the results.
