Catalogue Note

The arms are those of Stephens quartering Lyne, exemplified in 1826 to Charles Lyne (1764-1851) of Devonshire Place, London, and Weymouth, co. Dorset, upon his assuming by royal licence the surname of Stephens. He inherited a fortune from a cousin, John James Stephens (d. 1826), himself the inheritor and proprietor of a successful glass factory at Marinha Grande, Portugal. After Mr Lyne-Stephens's death his vast fortune passed to his son's widow, the French ballerina Pauline Duvernay (1812-1894).
