Footnotes

  • The presentation inscription reads;
    Louth Coursing Meeting November 1832.
    Louth (Lincolnshire) Coursing Society was one of the most celebrated coursing clubs; they held their meeting on the third Monday in November

    The shield and crest are those of a Liverpool surgeon, Dr James Dawson JP, who died in 1875 aged 96. In 1840-47 he famously built Wray Castle near Hawkshead in the Lake District. The arms were originally granted to James Dawson of Sutterby, Lincolnshire on 12 June 1664.
