It appears that Mr. Anstie did not avail himself of the privileges conveyed by his certificate, for the year following he disposed of it by deed of assignment, duly stamped, to John Rose, of Devizes, Baker. The consideration money paid by Rose was ten pounds, and the costs of "Drawing, Ingrossing, Assignment, Stamps and Paper," paid to the lawyer in the case, Mr. E. Joye, amounted to one pound, one shilling. The money value of a "Tyburn Ticket" in those days is thus fairly shown.

The last of these certificates issued in Wiltshire was to the late John Drewe, of Bishops Cannings, in July, 1818.
