I made false money in England for severall persons whose names are or followeth

Madam Iackson and I wrought at the sign of the George near the Church for one mr Kircher in Grace Church street near the Monument and delivered him severall Guineas at the sign of the Cross Keyes in the same street

Wee wrought h{illeg} wire for Mr Hesine who sells all sorts of Copper Wares and Iron and lives in Fleet street near Temple Barr

Wee wrought like wise for Mr Levele Lawman on Ludgate hill

as abov for Adams a Bancker Goldsmith that lives in the strand her father was present when we delivered them to him at an house near the Litle Exchange about 4 months before I left England


There is one Mr {Perce} a Merchant who lives near the Maypole in the Strand that keeps some Workmen at his brothers at the sign of the maggpy at Chelsea who makes money

There is also one Named {Kater} a merchant and Banker who lives in the strand near the Little Exchange He has a place three or 4 {lengths} out of the City whereas there is a Wand Mill I cannot yet think of the name of the place but I remember the name of the Village in Harrow on the Hill and the House and the House is called Northall and the monyer Keeps the house his name is {Goldin}

The same thing may be found at Mr Williams's a Goldsmith in the Pall mall and one of his apprentices told me he had seen it signed Maxmi Laleue

I suspect Mr Rigeley on Suffolk street in the Hay market and mr Barton Goldsmith at Charing Cross and mr Perigade in St. Albans street at the sign of the duke of St. Albans I suspect them for dealing with those who coyn false money

Hely the Forger of money had correspondence at the Hague with the English Embassadors Coach man a litle man called William and with another named ardson alias adson an Englishman that deals in {Legnors}

Hely has told me that above 4 months since he had {illeg} at Rotterdam with one Named Calin an English Factor but I doe not know where he lives and with another named Stratman who lives at the sign of the Crown and two Scepters near the post there is still another person at the Hague that I will name but at the present I cannot remember it but I hope to do it to morrow and give you a Generall account

Estige in Hartshorn Lane at Charing Cross a Wood monger

Further and {illeg} Examination of Maxmilian Laleu by Fabricius {Hooftaffi} in presence of all the {likepers} except Baker of the City of Harlem in the Prison there 8 January 1699

Maximilian Laleue acknowledges the false money found about him consisting in Sikellens and Gilders was made by him three or four dayes before he came hither from the Hague
