Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

‘Beginning of June (<16>76) John Nourse, lord of Wood-eaton, rebuilding his house and digging up an old seller, found many old coins (brass, as was supposed) which they looking on a<s> useless, throw’d them as useless aside, which rubbish with other help<ed> to levell his court. But one of these comming into the hands of Dr. (Robert) Plot, he found that they were gold, and that that which he had was a Brittish peice, having Cunobiline on one side and Tastia <on> another. Mr. <Obadiah?> Walker also hath another. But the court and yard being finisht and paved, ’tis not yet pluck’d up againe for the gold. Brittish money hid from the Romanes. (In) Stow Wood were found Roman coines about 1651.’
