This is in copper, and was no doubt issued for a farthing, though it is of the same size as the preceding halfpenny [32], which is in brass.

William Wilberforce, mercer and grocer, was made a Governor of Beverley in 1642; the following year he was chosen Mayor, and was again elected in 1674.

FRANCIS CALVERT

Boroughbridge was formerly a chapelry in the ancient parish of Aldborough, and the Boroughbridge registers, therefore, are mondern; but in the Aldborough registers under burials, occurs:

"Cath., daughter of Mr. Francis Calvert, buried April 8, 1656."

"Mr." is unusual at that date, and shows that Francis Calvert was a man of some note. In 1657 and 1658 there are also entries of baptisms of Elizabeth and Frances Calvert, daughters of Mr. F. Calvert. The Rev. R. M. Marriott, M.A. kindly sends this information.
