North-west London families at the Royal Mint

K J Valentine

The Company of the Moneyers at the Royal Mint was responsible for manufacturing the coin of the realm. In the first half of the 19th century, membership of the Company averaged seven Fellows, including the Provost. Appointments were made on the strength of personal recommendation and, because of the high standards of probity required, membership tended to run in families. One such family was the Haleys and Nicolls – with their relatives by marriage – who were resident in north-west London (Willesden, Neasden) and were active in the period c. 1700 – 1850.
