Ex Taffs, Nott and Norweb collections (illustrated in the Norweb Sylloge)

There is no record of a Daniel Pease in the surviving Hearth Tax Returns, so it is unclear whether the issuer came from the (smaller) Rosemary Lane near St Bartholomew's Hospital, or the Rosemary Lane which lay mostly outside the City in Stepney.  The latter seems more likely.
