Clothes Pegs in Cardiff

I’ve been contacted by Stuart from Cardiff who, whilst renovating his Victorian house, came across a dozen old wooden clothes pegs under the floorboards. Has anyone come across pegs used apotropaically (is that a word?) before? They’re not the most obvious items for deliberate concealment, but I can’t think of another reason why 12 clothes pegs wood find themselves underneath floorboards. Theories and ideas welcome!
