John Simeon (c.1822-1895) of Lindley was the farmer from at least the 1860s to early 1890s.
In January 1862, a labourer named Edwards was digging in a field at Storth when he uncovered a large iron posnet which contained around £500 in spade guineas. The Huddersfield Chronicle speculated that the hidden hoard might be "part of the plunder taken out of the strong iron-bound chest by the thieves who robbed 'Johnny Steele's' house at Blackhouse, some 15 or 20 years ago".
