History of the Hunt

Start Year: 1871
End Year: N/A
History: The Hunt dates from 1871, when the old Burton country was divided (see Burton), and the country as now constituted has existed since 1895, before which date part was hunted first by Mr Jarvis and then by the Burton. Mr Cockburn purchased the hounds from the country in 1896. In 1904 Mr Lubbock purchased the hounds from Mr Cockburn. In 1907 Lord Charles Bentinck purchased them, and in 1909 they became the property of Sir Robert Filmer.

Hunt Country

Hunt Country: The country, which lies in Lincs and Notts, extends some 20 miles from Newark (west) to Sleaford (east), and some 11 miles from Lincoln (north) to Leadenham (south). Obstacles on the Lincoln Heath are well-maintained hedges and some stone walls, and in the vale large dykes and drains. As this is largely an arable country one needs a horse that will go through the plough, but set-aside has eased the problem. Best centres: Lincoln, whence meets of the Burton; Sleaford, whence meets of the Belvoir; and Newark, in the south west corner, whence meets of the Belvoir, Grove & Rufford, and South Notts are accessible.
