I have the Love Token made by/for Henry to his mother (Elizabeth, on a defaced 2 penny coin.
I have tracked most of his history in Tasmania, his British trial details and would like to search his British history (he was born in the London suburb of Finsbury) with the idea of returning the token to any possible family line. (He did not have any male heirs from the 3 Tasmanian Marriages). I am not related.
