GEORGE I BRITANNIA STANDARD SILVER MARROW SCOOP
Thomas Farren, London, 1721
Crested for the family of Bludworth (Bloodworth)
Of heavy gauge silver in the usual double ended form,
the rather wide large bowl verso
crested for the family of Bludworth (Bloodworth):
A naked dexter arm embowed proper gutty de sang
grasping in the hand a wreath of laurel vert
The crest as engraved upon this George I Britannia Standard Silver Marrow Scoop by
hallmarked London 1721 is that of the family of Bludworth
(sometimes spelt Bloodworth).
Upon the balance of probability and without any evidence to contrary this crest as
pertains to the family of Bludworth.
Sadly, there appears to be a
dearth of information upon the Bludworths,
although there is a possibility that there
was a distant cousinship to Sir Thomas Bludworth
who was Lord Mayor of London
during the Great Fire of London in 1666.
It is thought likely that the Bludworths
stemmed from the County of Derbyshire or thereabouts.
