The crest as engraved upon this Victorian Silver-Gilt Hanoverian Pattern Dessert Service for Twelve is that of
The Right Honourable Baron Farquhar.

Horace Brand Townsend-Farquhar (later Farquhar) (born 18th May 1844 died 30th August 1923) was the fifth son of Sir Walter Minto Townsend-Farquhar, the 2nd Baronet of the Mauritius within the Baronetage of the United Kingdom (created on the 21st August 1821) and Erica Catherine Mackay (the testamentary heiress of Eric Mackay, the 7th Lord Reay). Horace was a leading Conservative politician serving as Member of Parliament of Marylebone West from 1895 to 1898 and sometime Treasurer of the Conservative Party. He was created a Baronet of the United Kingdom (styled ‘of Cavendish Square in the Parish of St Marylebone in the County of London’) on the 25th October 1892 and he was later created a peer as Baron Farquhar, of St Marylebone in the County of London on the 20th January 1898 and further created Viscount Farquhar on the 21st June 1917 and finally as Earl Farquhar on the 30th November 1922 all within the Peerage of the United Kingdom. During his time in the House of Lords, he served as Master of the (Royal) Household from 1901 to 1907 and as Lord Steward of the (Royal) Household in 1915. He was also an Extra Lord in Waiting to King Edward VII until the King’s death in 1910.

He continued as an Extra Lord in Waiting to King George V until he was appointed as Lord Steward of the Household in 1915. All these posts are (as they are today) political appointments within the Royal Household. He was also appointed a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (KCVO) and later promoted within the order as a Knight Grand Cross (GCVO). All appointments to Royal Victorian Order are in the gift of the Sovereign and are not political in any whatsoever. Horace was also appointed a Privy Councillor on the 2nd November 1907 and close to the end of his life, his was appointed a Knight Grand Cross (Civil Division) of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath (GCB) in 1922. He also served as a Deputy Lieutenant and Justice of the Peace of the County of Middlesex.

Horace married Emilie Packe, the daughter of Henry Packe, of Harleston in the County of Northamptonshire and Twyford Hall, East Dereham in the County of Norfolk on the 5th January 1895. Prior to her marriage to Horace, Emilie was the widow of Sir Edward Scott, the 5th Baronet of Lytchett Minster in the County of Dorset.

Upon Horace’s death in 1923, the Baronetcy of Cavendish Square, together all his peerages fell into extinction for want of a male heir.
