John Gilbert wrote of this stone in 1886:
“A City stone, bearing the same inscription [as this stone] is also built into the wall on the north side of the road just before it winds round into Lower Wolvercote; but this has been removed from some other position and erroneously placed there, as it is not on the boundary at all; (it is a pity this stone should be allowed to remain where it is).”
