Provenance

The arms are those of Carwardine of co. Essex and co. Hertford quartering another for John Carwardon [sic].  He was probably descended from Sir Thomas Carwarden, who had been made Master of the Revels to Henry VIII in 1545.

Catalogue Note

The Rose Inn at Holborn Bridge, which crossed the now-subterranean Fleet River, was one of the most important terminals for carriers (as opposed to coaches) bringing goods to London from the west of the country. The inn served west country towns such as Blandford, Dorchester and Exeter.
