A liberal Member of Parliament for East Retford, F.J.S. Foljambe was made Master of the Burton Hunt in 1871. His mastership was a successful and popular one; he is described by Lord Henry Bentinck as having 'The best mind ever given to Hounds and Hunting'. Foljambe's mastership is further celebrated in a poem of 1878, by a 'Hair Brained Chatterer':
Then first to our 'Master' in long coated pink
And voluminous choker, let's all bumpers drink;
He's a thorough good sportsman, right honest and true
Though he don't back up 'Dixxy' he's thorough true blue.
Two hundred mounted followers attended his retirement in 1881, when he was presented with a leather-bound, hand-coloured testimonial.
An earlier picture of the Burton Hunt by John Ferneley Sen. similarly shows Lincoln Cathedral in the distance.
