Lot Essay

The arms are those of Cust with an annulet for difference, as borne by the Hon. Peregrine Cust, fifth son of Sir Brownlow Cust, 1st Lord Brownlow, born in 1791. A Lieutenant-General in the Army, he married in 1823 Lady Isabella Montagu-Scott, daughter of the 4th Duke of Buccleuch, who died in 1829. He married as his second wife, in 1833, Sophia, daughter of John, 2nd Viscount Sydney, who died in 1852. As his third wife he married, in 1860, Frances, widow of Augustus, Earl of Albemarle.

Peregrine Cust, elder brother Henry Cockayne, Canon of Windsor, had married Anna, eldest daughter of Francis, 1st Earl of Kilmorey, in 1816. The Earl died in 1832 and the engraving of the arms and inscription would appear to date from this time.
