Catalogue Note

The arms are those of Jolliffe with Mitchell in pretence for John Jolliffe of the Inner Temple, London, who was married to his first wife, Catherine Mitchell on 30 march 1731 at St. Christopher Le Stocks, London. She, who was daughter and heir of Robert Mitchell (d. 1739) of Petersfield, died within three months of their marriage.

The later Baron's coronet is most probably for Sir William Jolliffe, 1st Baron Hylton, and the great-grandson of John Jolliffe. Sir William was a British soldier and Conservative politician who notably took part in the Peterloo Massacre of 1819.
