Claude Martin, a French adventurer, was born at Lyons in
January 1732, and died near Lucknow, 13. September 1800.

524 -

He distinguished himself first under Count de Lally, the French
commander in India and Governor of Pondicherry, then he enlisted
in the service of the East India Company, as chief of a company of
French deserters. Later, he became a favourite ot Sidi-ed-Daulah,
king of Oudh, and amassed a colossal fortune. The splendour of
his palace at Constantia, near Lucknow, was proverbial. In 1796 he
was appointed Major General in the East India Co. He founded
several schools, known under the name of Martiniere Schools, at
Lyons, Calcutta, Chandernagor, and Lucknow, some of which still
exist. The medals above-described were intended as Prizes for the
encouragement of study and diligence at those schools.

Tradition has ascribed to General Martin the issue of a number
of imitation zodiacal half Rupees, which were evidently not
intended to pass as counterfeit money, but merely struck as orna-
ments. Marsden however denies the General's connection with
these forgeries, on the authority of Martin's personal friends

MACKWORTH, SIR HUMPHREY (Brit). Owner of silver mines in
Wales, temp. Anne. Some of the current money of that reign, with
plumes on the }$L., was struck from silver derived from the Welsh
mines of Sir Carberry Price and Sir Humphrey Mackworth. " An
order of Council of 5 th of April, 1706, directed that money coined
from silver brought into the mint by the Governor and Company
for melting down lead with Pitcoale and Seacoale should have the
mark of distinction on each piece as represented in their petition,
i. e., roses and plumes alternately. The coins with the plumes
were frequently called Quakers' money, because the company by
which the mines were worked comprised among its members many
persons of that denomination. "
