  • The crest on the George IV spoons and forks is that of Adam augmented by insignia of the Orders of Bath and St Michael and St George for General Sir Frederick Adam (1781-1853).
    Son of William Blair Adam, he was commissioned into the Artillery at the age of 12 and rose to command the 3rd (Light) Brigade at the Battle of Waterloo where 698 of the 2937 men under his command were casualties.
    General Adam subsequently served as Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands (1824-32) and as Governor of Madras (1832-37).
