(unless otherwise stated)

"PULLOXHILL, (Bedfordshire) near Silsoe. About 40 years ago a gold mine was discovered here, which was seized for the K. by the society of royal mine-adventurers; but the refiners finding what gold they extracted from the ore did not always answer the charge of separation, did not go on with it."
