The inscription reads 'To Sir John Trollope Bart of Casewick From Sir John Thorold Bart of Syston Park June 26th 1837'
The arms are those of Trollope for Sir John Trollope 7th Bt. (1800-1874) of Casewick, co. Lincoln. He was later created 1st Baron Kesteven in 1868. He married Julia Maria (d.1876), eldest daughter of Sir Robert Sheffield 4th Bt., in 1847. He was educated at Eton College and became a Captain in the 10th Hussars. He was later M.P. for Lincoln between 1841 and 1868 serving as president of the Poor Law Board in 1852.

The Trollopes and Thorolds were both prominent Lincolnshire families. They intermarried on a number of occasions, firstly in 1759 when Isabella (d.1803), daughter of Sir John Thorold, 8th Bt. (1703-1775) married Thomas Middleton Trollope (1721-1779), eldest son of Sir Thomas Trollope, 4th Bt. (1691-1784).
