  • About The Book

    The story of The Bossall Treasure dates from around 1300 following the aftermath of the Crusades. There are strong links to the Knights Templar leading to later connections with the Freemasons. Many characters, forgotten through the passage of time, but important during their day, are portrayed casting a new and sometimes shocking account of power, deceit, murder, ambition, political and religious differences and closely guarded family secrets.

    The story trails John Pearson, steward to Sir Robert Belt in the early 1600’s, along with his family before him and those that followed, who were all in pursuit of the status they believed they had been unfairly denied, that of gentry.

    Amongst the many lives touched upon are those of Jaques de Molay the last Master of the Knights Templar, Elias Ashmole, a man with ambition who stopped at nothing and who’s enduring legacy is The Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology in Oxford.

    Others include the Darley’s of Buttercrambe who became well known in the horse racing fraternity, the Read family of Sand Hutton Hall and the Bawtry family. Charles I also features not only with events concerning the Civil War but some rather less salubrious connections, as does Charles II.

    The large following of the Belt family around the world, particularly in America, may find the story of the elusive Humphrey Belt interesting.

    Suitable for readers of most ages it provides an exiting opportunity to join other treasure hunters from the comfort of your armchair. Or why not visit the various locations and relive the history first hand.

    Either way no additional research is needed to find the treasure. All the clues to reach the solution of where the treasure is hidden are contained in the book.

    Can you be the first to solve the mystery and find the lost treasure? If you can the treasure is yours to keep.

    I wish you good hunting.
