Guy Southwell discovered a silver vervel hawking ring while he was metal detecting on Denmead Farm, Edneys Lane, Denmead, on March 10 last year. The disc-shaped item has a central perforation and dates back to the 1650s-1700s. Such objects were used to denote the ownership of falcons and were attached to birds legs via jesses.

The rings carried the name or crest of the owner and this item, found near Hambledon, was engraved with the name Edmund Bruning. The National Archives contain the will of a Mr Edmund Bruning, of Hambledon, and showed his family were major landowners in the parish from the 16th century to the 18th century. The coroner said it seems that Edmund Bruning is the same Edmund Bruning whose name is on the vervel, and so the item is thought to have belonged to him.
