The arms are those of Ashburnham for Bertram Ashburnham, 4th Earl of Ashburnham 1797-1878. In 1840, he married Katherine Charlotte, daughter of George Baillie of Jerviswood, co. Lanark and sister of George, 10th Earl of Haddington. In his youth Ashburnham was a great traveller and an avid collector of fine art, early and rare books and manuscripts. Through his lifetime he amassed an extensive library of English and foreign printed works, which was in part purchased by the British Government in 1883. The Earl commissioned an extensive silver dinner service with a new and particular design, adapted from Moorish ornament. The service was made by the firm of Storr & Mortimer, mostly between 1836 and 1838. A large portion was dispersed by Christie's London on 24 March, 1914, but other elements of the service have been appeared on the market in 1953.
