Mr. H. S. Gill says: "It is believed by some that this uncertain token" (Boyne, p. 526, No. 7) "may belong to Sedbergh, Sed-brig (the local name for bridge) being similar in sound; moreover, the above has the same device on the obverse and date on the reverse as another Sedbergh farthing. There is no Sedbridge in the kingdom."

In the "History of Selby" is the following curious extract from the records of Wakefield Sessions. The name as given may be a mistake, for Farrett might easily be copied instead of Pvrratt:

"Forasmuch as Jane, the wife of William Farrett of Selby, shoemaker, stands indicted at this sessions for a common scold, to the great annoyance and disturbance of her neighbours, and breach of His Majesty's Peace: it is therefore ordered that the said Jane Farrett, for the said offence, be openly ducked, and ducked three times over head and ears by the Constables of Selby aforesaid, for which this shall be their warrant--October 5, 1671."
