I`m pretty sure I`ve only ever found One. It was as a " Her Penny " Token from Chester.

Yes, Kingswood Gloucestershire .... on your door step

Confirmation here https://www.britishmuseum.org/collectio ... t/C_T-1244

A nice find and all the better with the local connection.

I have just had a look on Ancestry and "Edward Tanner" was a very popular name in Kingswood ! - probably a "family name" where the first son was consistently called Edward - so unable to give any more information.

This is a useful resource for tokens

https://archive.org/stream/tradetokensi ... 0/mode/2up

Its broken down by county and some interesting comments about Gloucestershire (although it does not contain this one)

Here is another site for the county (again less yours)
