Footnotes

  • This glass is of particular interest as it appears to have been made for a member of the Beilby family. The dexter side of the arms and the crest depicted here are recorded for Beilby of Micklethwaite Grange, Yorkshire in Surtees Society Vol. 36 for 1859, p. 4 which is a transcript of Dugdale's 1665 Visitation of Yorkshire. Research into the identity of the marriage party remains inconclusive, however. For an account of the Beilby family's early history and a family tree, see Major James Rush, A Beilby Odyssey. This glass, already with its damaged foot, is believed to have been bought in the 1930s in Huddersfield open market. For a period it was on temporary loan to Huddersfield Museum. The present owner acquired it in the 1970s and in 1997 took it to the Antiques Roadshow in Barnsley. See David Battie and Fiona Malcolm, The Antiques Roadshow Book, 2005, p. 128
