Lot Essay

The arms are those of Orde with Ward in pretence.

Technically the arms of Orde with Ward in pretence only relate to William Orde (1735- 1814) and his wife Anne, daughter and heiress of William Ward of Morpeth and Nunnykirk. William Orde's will dated 14 May 1811 makes no mention of his wife, which suggests she predeceased him. The residuary beneficiary was his only surviving son William Orde, who was High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1819 and who died unmarried in 1843. It is likely that the engraving was done for the unmarried William Orde in 1815, the year after he succeeded his father, to be used together with any inherited engraved silver dating from the time of his parents.
