Catalogue Note

The crest is that of Bacon of Raveningham Hall, Norfolk, probably for Sir Edmund Bacon, 8th Bt. (1749-1820), whose ancestor was Sir Nicholas Bacon (1509-1579), Lord Keeper of the Great Seal during the reign of Elizabeth I. The initials AB are probably those of Sir Edmund’s second wife, Anne (1749-1813), daughter of Sir William Beauchamp-Proctor, 1st Bt., whom he married at St. Marylebone on 29 January 1778.
