  • Duncombe Park in Yorkshire, England from Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, and Co., "Views of the Seats of Noblemen and Gentlemen" (1829).

    Engraved with the coronet and crest of Charles Duncombe of Duncombe Park, Helmsley, Yorkshire, created 1st Baron Feversham in 1826.

    Charles Duncombe was born in 1764. He was appointed High Sheriff of Yorkshire and elected to the House of Commons for Shaftesbury in 1790. He married Lady Charlotte Legge, the only daughter of the 2nd Earl of Dartmouth, in 1795. Duncombe held his seat in the House of Commons for Shaftesbury until 1796, and then represented Aldborough from 1796 to 1806 and other constituencies from 1812-1826. He died in July 1841, aged 76, and was succeeded in the barony by his son William. The title is still extant.

    John Houle apprenticed in 1778 to Paul Storr. Houle's first mark was entered in 1811 as plateworker at 24 Red Lion Street, Clerkenwell, London. His second mark was registered in 1813. Robert Hennell II was apprenticed to Houle as an engraver.
