Full Description

Quarterly meeting, Bury St Edmunds, December 14, 1848. The following presents were announced ... An impression in gutta percha, of the seal of Mettingham College, by the Rev C R Manning of Tilney St Lawrence Lynn. The seal of Mettingham College is additionally interesting because in the MS accounts of the college for the year 1405-1406 is the entry of a sum of 20s paid for its fabrication. The deed from which the impression was copied is of the time of Henry VIII. There is no indication of the history of the seal during the intervening period so it has been included as MTT 003.
