Catalogue Note

Sir Richard Carr Glyn (1755-1838), banker and in 1798 Lord Mayor of London, was the grandson of Sir Robert Carr, a mercer of Ludgate Hill, whose wife, Grace was the sister of Thomas Bigge of Northumberland. In 1763 the latter married Elizabeth, sister of Philip Rundell (1746-1827), senior partner of Rundell, Bridge & Rundell.

'BLANDFORD Races commenced on Tuesday, the 8th instant [8 August 1815], when the Dorsetshire Gold Cup [the silver-gilt cup and cover in this lot], by subscribers of ten guineas each, for all ages, was won by Mr. Radclyffe's Midnight, beating Mr. Farquharson's b. f. by Eagle. . . The course was well attended, and the sport on both days excellent. – The company at the balls was more numerous than for many years past, and the ball room was graced by the fashion and beauty of the neighbouring counties, as well as by those of the county of Dorset.' (The Sporting Magazine, London, 1815, pp. 231-232)
