The cross and crosslets type coinage of King Henry II is more often called "Tealby" because of the enourmous find of a hoard of this coinage in late 1807 which amounted to over 5,700 pieces. They were found at Bayons Manor farm near Tealby in Lincolnshire, and the first report was written in the Stamford Mercury of the 6thNovember 1807. From this hoard alone, 17 new mint towns for the coinage were added to what was known as of 1807, however only some 600 + pieces were saved for the national and other important private collections with 5,127 pieces deemed unworthy and sent to bemelted at the Tower of London.
