......Daniel James . On the 30th of March I sent a parcel of goods by my wife for Mr. Neal Campbell of Alesbury; the silver had been sent for me to work up for him into rims for buckles; there were rims for eleven pair. They were directed for him, to go by Mr. Rogers's waggon. The same buckles were brought to me by Mr. Nash, and a constable, who asked me if I had been rob'd. Upon seeing them, I knew them to be the same (produced in court, and deposed to be the property of Neal Campbell , of Alesbury.) [Neil Campbell of Aylesbury ].....
Q. Where do you live?
James. I live in Monkwell street.........
[Monkwell Street had several silver bucklemakers with registered marks in the second half of the 18th century ]
