After reading thru' Richard Hayes "Negociator's Magazine" and Sir John Comyns' "A digest of the laws of England"(covers the development of the coinage tho' not available on Google Books) re. "nobles", I was none the wiser.

Checking out "hatlings" and it's Welsh connection was a welcome relief!!

 The newspaper article I referred to includes " .... summoned for playing at toss .... each fined half a crown".

William Morgan's 1588 translation of the Bible refers to "ddwy hatling" ("two mites" - Luke, Chapter 21, verse 2).

"Mites" were biblical - Mark mentions 2 mites = 1 quadrans.

The earliest mention I spotted was 1531 and the latest 1803 - need to backtrack and check.

"hatling" - Welsh, noun, female
meaning = mite; half farthing; modest contribution; all that a poor person can afford"

A searchable, google books version of Richard Hayes' "The Negociator's Magazine of Monies and Exchanges in Three parts", published 1730, is available on line. Covers the development of the coinage up to date of publication.

I searched under "nobles" - covered by pages 111-121.
