I never knew it had been lost, but: link

One of only two known ceremonial parchment copies of the Declaration of Independence has been found – in the archives of West Sussex County Council in Chichester. Nobody seems to know how it got there.

The village of Washington is 20-odd miles from Chichester
Just sayin'

Although apparently evidence points to Charlie Lennox, the 'Radical' 3rd Duke of Richmond, supporter of the colonists' cause, who confusingly lived at Goodwood, just outside Chichester. (As Master of Ordinance from 1782, he pioneered reforms in the Royal Artillery; most importantly trials that led to the creation of the Royal Horse Artillery).
