‘Civil War’ Silver Found in Pot

Posted by admin on May 15, 2009

An earthenware pot containing silver items thought to have been buried for safekeeping during the Civil War has been discovered in a Somerset garden.

It was found 18in (46cm) below the surface of the garden of a cottage in Nether Stowey, near Bridgwater.

The items bear the letters CGA, which are thought to stand for the initials of Angel Grey, the then owner of Stowey Court, and his wife, Catherine.

A treasure inquest has been adjourned to see if there is any claim on it.
