The hoard comprises four silver spoons, two sections of a silver goblet and a silver bell salt. These items were all found in 2008 only a few hundred yards from the Stowey Court in Somerset, a local which say action during the English Civil War (1642-51). The silverware is hall marked and dates to the early 1600s, and bears the initials 'CGA' which may indicate a connection with one of the residents of the Stowey Court, Charles Angell Gray. The hoard is likely to have been buried during a time of crisis during the war, and unfortunately for its owner, it was never recovered. The hoard now resides in the Museum of Somerset.
