Going through my finds boxes and found this one lurking, it's a bit basic so probably why I didn't post it before but as it's quiet I'm getting round to these little jobs.

Birmingham maker Henry Edwards, gold gilt with simple fleur-de-lis.

Found Gloucestershire, thanks in advance.
The fleur-de-lis crest was used by many families.
Click the names in this list to see the details... Click Here
ROGERS and COXWELL-ROGERS are shown as being in Gloucestershire.

Hi Dave,

Thanks again for the ID above, for the benefit of all, the landowner confirmed he still knows that Coxwell-Rogers are local to the area and will be contacting them to tell them of this small but exciting button find.

Here are a few more buttons dug out of various finds boxes, which I hope you'll be able to ID, all found N Glos (the one with the lady skipping I'm sure I've posted previously but can't find it so apologies for asking again).

Andy.

This is a WOOD family livery button.
Wood families had lots of similar crests, as can be seen here... Click Here
The crest on the button is probably the same as the one shown here...

Hi Dave,

Thanks yet again, and as I suspected at least one I've previously posted so apologies for my rubbish admin.

Tonight I will look at the names in more detail to work out if any still have local connections - and label them up!!

Brilliant work, much appreciated :g50:
