  1. I am researching the Goxhill Church Wardens accounts for All Saints Church, Goxhill, North Lincolnshire.
    In 1734 two payments ,12.12.0 pence and 5.8. 0 pence were made in respect of the Kings Coat of Arms.
    In our copy of your publication” Royal Arms in Lincolnshire Churches ” there is no mention of Goxhill. Does such a copy exist?

  2. Thanks for your post, Dave. We have similar in the small Saxon church of Stragglethorpe, nr Brant Broughton and have recorded several during my recent visit to Somerset. The theme is always the same but everyone is slightly different. Does your Churchwarden accounts say who/where the payment was sent to…? William
