Barron Haire (b. 1627), freeman 1647, chandler, first wife Naomi, second wife Mary; William Hobson (†1668), freeman 1650, brewer, wife’s name Mary. Barron Haire’s second issue of farthings with the altered wife’s initial must have been made after his second marriage to Mary Murfin in September 1665 and their existence shows that the issuer retained, or had access to, the original dies made at least 9 years earlier
