Crested for the Family of Clinton, Warwickshire, and Newcastle-under-Lyne





Of very heavy gauge silver, the Britannia standard marrow scoop of usual double ended form,

the verso crested for the Family of Clinton:
Out of a ducal coronet gules a plue of five ostrich feathers argent banded with a line laid chevronwise azure


The crest as engraved upon this George I Britannia Standard Silver Marrow Scoop by Charles Jackson,
hallmarked London 1725 is that of the family of Clinton.

Undoubtedly this particular marrow scoop was at one time in the possession of a scion of the ancient family of Clinton.
The Clintons stemmed from a Thomas de Clinton, of Amington in the County of Warwickshire,
whose son, John de Clinton, the 1st Baron Clinton, of Maxtock in the County of Warwickshire,
was living during the reign of King Edward I (1272 to 1307).
The only son of Thomas Clinton, the 8th Baron Clinton, Edward Fiennes de Clinton,
was created the Earl of Lincoln on the 4th May 1572.
He was a Knight of the Garter and served as Lord High Admiral.
At the time of the manufacture of this scoop
Henry Clinton, the 7th Earl of Lincoln (1684-1728), would have been living.

Henry's second son, Henry Pelham-Clinton, the 9th Earl of Lincoln (1720 to 1794) succeeded under a special remainder
as the 2nd Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyme (on the death of his uncle, Thomas Pelham-Holles, the 1st Duke in 1768).
