Footnotes

  • Bartholomew Seman (or Goldbeter) was made Master of the Mint of London and Calais. The investiture appointing him is dated February 13, 1422. The terms were not good enough for him, and in November 1422, he was granted the profits of the mint of York and later that of Bristol. No Bristol-minted coins of this period are known. Gold coins of Henry VI engraved by Gilbert Vanbranburgh are annulet types with pierced cross mintmarks.
