Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Haughley Park, Suffolk (up to 1956).

    Haughley Park is a privately owned Grade I listed Jacobean manor house. It was built by Sir John Sulyard in 1620 and since had various owners. From 1918 to 1924 the house remained empty, from 1924 to 1956 it was bought by Turner Henderson, a retired tea planter.

    The Lancaster branch of Gillows used a serial number preceded by the prefix 'L' in around 1870. In 1877 they started at 4000 reaching 6000 in 1878, therefore the above lot can be accurately dated to the early part of 1877.
