Lot Essay

The Charrington family had been long established in Surrey before Nicholas Charrington, an ancestor of the original owner of the present lot, bought Bures Manor from Sir William Garway in 1622. Eric Charrington (1872-1927), a captain in the Royal Navy, served first in Zanzibar in 1896. He was mentioned in dispatches having seen service in Benin and China. He received the China Medal and was created a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order for his service with the storming party at the attack and capture of the Taku Forts.
