Catalogue Note

In 1829 the Earl of Surrey was elected to the House of Commons for Horsham, the first Roman Catholic to sit in the House after Catholic emancipation.  He represented Horsham until 1832, then West Sussex 1832-41.  Made a member of the Privy Council in 1837, he served as Treasurer of the Household 1837-41, Master of the Horse 1846-54, and Lord Steward 1853-54.  He was made a Knight of the Garter in 1848.  His wife served as a Lady of the Bedchamber 1842-43.  These tureens later passed to Carlton Towers, one of the Norfolk properties through the mother of the 17th Duke.
