Oldham, Nathaniel N/A
Probably the stamp of Nathaniel Oldham (ca 1700 1740), son of a dissenting minister. He inherited a large fortune from a near relative and was a zealous collector of various kinds of curiosities. He was a friend of Sir Hans Sloane, Dr Mead and other collectors of the time. He was very extravagant and is supposed to have died a debtor in the King's Bench Prison.
