Footnotes

  • The plaque to the reverse of the locket must have been applied post 1912, when Guy Paget purchased Sulby Hall.

    George Ashby (1656–1728) was the son of George Ashby of Quenby and Mary Shuckburgh of Naseby. He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, gaining his MA in 1675. He married in November 1681 Hannah Waring. Ashby was a Whig politician, sitting at various periods from 1695 to 1708. His funerary monument describes him as 'honest George Ashby the Planter' on account of his arboreal interests at Quenby, where he successfully cultivated a rare genus of cedar tree from the Lebanon.

    Ashby was appointed High Sheriff of Leicester by Charles II's brother James, in around 1688-9. The High Sheriff was traditionally the King's man and representative for the county. He customarily received a personal gift in addition to the title, for services rendered to the King.
