Footnotes

  • Provenance; purchased from J.Kyre Fletcher Ltd., of Newport on the 4th December 1940 for £45.00.

    The armorial is of GRIFFIN of Glamorgan.

    The family resided at Newton Court built on land purchased by Admiral Thomas Griffin in the 18th century, it was left to his third son, George Griffin, after his death.

    Under George, Newton Court was constructed between 1799 and 1802; the three-storey house was built in the neoclassical style, and remained in the Griffin family at least until 1845, when it was recorded as being in possession of Mary Griffin.

    The exuberant engraving on the tray is for TYLER of Monmouth.

    The Revd Endel Tyler, Rector of St Giles in the Fields, London married Elizabeth Ann Griffin (1798-1830), daughter and heiress of George Griffin in 1827. Their son George Griffin Tyler (c.1828 - ?) changed his name to Griffin
    on inheriting the Dixton Newton estate.
