Footnotes

  • The crest is of THACKERAY of Harrow. The crest was granted in 1755 to Dr Thomas Thackeray and among those of his descendents who used it legitimately was the famous writer William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863).

    By family repute, the tea service belonged to W M Thackeray and thence by descent to the late Brigadier K R S Trevor CBE DSO, father of the current owner.
