made between the king and Sir Robert, for coining
the monies of silver and gold, according to his let-
ters patent. To this office was annexed a salary
of four thousand pounds per annum. After the
king's murder, the parliament having ordered a
new coin to be stamped, Sir Robert Harley refused
to coin with any other stamp than that of the king :
whereupon the parliament ordered a trial of the
pixe to be made at Sir Robert's expense, and re-
moved him from his place. While he had enjoyed
it, to the great improvement of our coin, he intro-
duced the famous artist, Thomas Symonds, to be

reigns champions to the kings of England,
and were sheriffs of the county of Hereford

Camden, in his Britannica, in the account
of Herefordshire, observes: " Erdesley,
where the famous and ancient family of
Baskerville have long inhabited, which
bred in old time, so many noble knights;
they deduce their original from a niece of
Gunora, that most celebrated Norman lady,
who long ago flourished in this county and
its neighbour Shropshire ; and held the ham-
let of Lanton in capite, as of the honour of
Montgomery by the service of giving the
king one barbed arrow as often as he came
into those parts to hunt in Cornedon Chase."
Sir Robert Baskerville, knt. of Erdes-
ley Castle, in the county of Hereford, to.
the daughter of Rees, of Wallia, and was s.
