    Wickham

    The British Numismatic Journal and Proceedings of the British Numismatic Society

    /1945

    Highlight: William Wickhamwas working, from Switzerland as a basis, to support anti-revolutionary movements in the interior of France. His intrigues with the French royalists were so extensive that when, after the coup d’etat of 18 Fructidor, 1797, the French Directory prepared to open relations with Switzerland, it demanded, as the first condition, the expulsion of the British envoy from Switzerland. But, when Wickham was persuaded by the Mayor of Bern, Steiger, to quit Switzerland of his own accord, the Directory of course at once made fresh demands. "In 1798 Switzerland succumbed to the attack of France — a misfortune which England was unable to prevent. On the other hand, English gold and English advice played a great r61e in the Second

Townsend, of Bath, cashier, these two officers being all who were necessary to conduct the business at that time. The first business, after organization, was transacted in the house now owned by Charles J. Everett, adjoining the residence of George M. Sayer, on Main street, but the location was soon changed, the bank having erected the house now occupied by Mrs. A. S. Murray, mother of the present president, G. W.

    Financial History

    Highlight: This is the story of how Henry Wickham seedlings that sprouted were transplanted to the far reaches of the Empire, breaking forever the Bra- zilian monopoly on rubber. It is a story filled with swashbuckling adventure and bureaucratic bungling on all sides. Jackson has done a magnificent job of research. The notes and citations run for almost 100 pages, or a quarter of the book. And Jackson clearly cre- ates in Wickham a sympathetic char- acter, detailing even his flaws, and they were many, in notes of Greek tragedy. Extensive research and a resonant main character would usually be strong points for a book, especially a business history. But in

In the Derbyshire series, on the contrary, less than half of them show the initials of the tokeners apart from their names, and less than twelve per cent,

    Highlight: Wickham Mine, Wickham, Lot 15, Range 10. — The ore occurs in masses, disseminated in what appears to be a bed, of uncertain thickness, in the same band of dolomite as that of the Acton mine. An experi- mental shaft has recently been sunk on it to a depth of about five fathoms, in which good bunches of ore have been met with. About four tons of 30 per cent, ore have been obtained from the excavation. Yales Mine, Durham, Lot 21, Range 7. — At this mine several veins, carrying more or less copper, intersect a mass of magnesian limestone, which is supposed to belong to the same band as that of the Acton mine. The veins have a general bearing northeastward, and trial shafts have been sunk on three of them, the thicknesses of which vary from 6 to 30 inches. The vein stone is calcspar, with a

    Could our readers please check their copies of the
    Raymond sales for Nov. 26, Nov. 27, and also May
    1928 to verify if specimens of this token were indeed in
    those sales? It seems incredible that Wilson could have
    had as many as 50% of the suspected population of these
    tokens.

    Also, if anyone has information on the Wickham sale I would
    be pleased to hear from them.

    Just to be absolutely sure of ourselves, I am talking about
    Breton 956 which is the McAuslane token from Newfoundland
    and not the McAusland token which is from Prince Edward
    Island. Thank you, once again for your assistance."

The existence of this token has been known for some years past, but it was so jealously guarded that it was not possible to obtain a description of it until its recent acquisition by Mr. A. E. Taplin, who occupied offices, 12, Oxford Street, on the site of “ a long-ago hostelry, ‘ The King’s Head.’ ” The Bowdrey family were prominent in the tokenage period in High Wycombe and old deeds in the possession of Mr. Taplin point to the fact that the “ King’s Head ” and other adjacent property belonged to a Robert Bowdrey, who was Churchwarden in 1671 and Overseer in 1680, and rated in 1674 for “ Bowdray’s Mill,” or “ St. John’s Mill,” at the old borough boundary, and Crab Tree Mead.

Taplin, who occupied offices, 12, Oxford Street, on the site of “ a long-ago hostelry, ‘ The King’s Head.’ ” The Bowdrey family were prominent in the tokenage period in High Wycombe and old deeds in the possession of Mr. Taplin point to the fact that the “ King’s Head ” and other adjacent property belonged to a Robert Bowdrey, who was Churchwarden in 1671 and Overseer in 1680, and rated in 1674 for “ Bowdray’s Mill,” or “ St. John’s Mill,” at the old borough boundary, and Crab Tree Mead.

In one of the packets there were as many as 500 of these interesting relics of bygone days ; and there were several others smaller, making in all about 700. Unacquainted with their value as antiquarian curiosities, the man took them to the chandler’s shop ; and, finding that they would not purchase any of those necessaries of which he stood most in need, he liberally distributed them by handfuls to any one that would have them. A gentleman of Colchester, being in the neighbourhood shortly after the discovery procured six of them, all different. An adept in antiquities here has pronounced them to have been coined previous to the Conquest. One of them bears the
