Richard and Ruth Hindmoor found the coins during building work on their Maryport property http://www.jah-jireh-maryport.co.uk/index.html . They had to wait three years before a coroner’s hearing, held in Carlisle last week, ruled that they had unearthed a treasure trove. The find was uncovered in the foundations of an old wall by workers using a digger. The bulk of the coins were 300 silver pennies of a type introduced by Edward I, (king of England 1272–1307 son of and successor to Henry III) in the national recoinage of 1279, a series that runs through to Edward III’s reign. There are also coins from Ireland, from the Berwick mint and coins of King Alexander of Scotland (reigned in Scotland 1264-84), although all of them are known to have circulated in England. Dr Barrie Cook, curator of medieval and early modern coinage at the British Museum, London said that the coins were part of a single group deposited on one occasion, possibly in the early 1300s. It was one of three discoveries from Cumbria declared treasure in separate cases dealt with by David Roberts, HM Coroner for North and West Cumbria. When treasure has vested in the Crown and is to be transferred to a museum, the Secretary of State is required to determine whether a reward should be paid by the museum before the transfer[62] to the finder/the occupier of the land at the time of the find. If the Secretary of State determines that a reward should be paid, he or she must also determine the market value of the treasure (assisted by the Treasure Valuation Committee at the British Museum the amount of the reward (which cannot exceed the market value), to whom the reward should be paid and, if more than one person should be paid, how much each person should receive. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treasure_trove http://www.newsandstar.co.uk/news/medieval-coins-found-in-cumbrian-garden-declared-as-treasure-1.921408?referrerPath=news http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Medieval+treasure+stash+unearthed.-a0278919765

81753=4565-Jah-jireh.jpg The Jar Jireh Residential Home for Jehovah's Witnesses is built around and made up of an ancient renovated farm and cottages surrounded by ancient farmland walls, with the Kingdom Hall for Maryport on the land to the left side of all the buildings. We actually know the 'Richard' of the article as Brother Jeremy Hindmoor because his dear late zealous Dad was the Richard or Brother Dick Hindmoor, who was the first Jehovah's Witness in Cumberland, just before the First World War, so Jeremy always went by his second name, so we wouldn't confuse him with his Dad.
