History of the Hunt

Start Year: 0

History: The late Mr R. R. Wright formed a pack of bloodhounds in 1951 and these were called the North Warwickshire Bloodhounds, kennelled at Coleshill in Warwickshire. He was helped considerably by Mr Eric Furness, who had hunted bloodhounds before the war, and who had also formed a new pack just after the end of the war. These were based in the Peak District and named the Peak Bloodhounds.The hounds used are - and have been since the early 1950s - pure bred bloodhounds crossed to - mainly - foxhounds; although various crosses have been tried over the years. In the early days, Messrs Wright and Furness decided that the pure bred bloodhound was not fully suitable for pack hunting and lacked stamina. Both packs were crossed with Dumfriesshire (black and tan) foxhounds, belonging to Mr Rupert Buchanan Jardine. Mr Furness continued for some years with this breeding, but closed down many years ago. Mr Wright continued by crossing his hounds to English Foxhounds and back to bloodhounds, a policy still in practice. In the late 1970s Messrs A & N Burne were inducted into the sport and became Joint Masters under the guidance of Mr Wright, continuing as a private pack, hunting mainly on foot, the kennels still being at Coleshill. Mr Wright died in 1991 and hunting continued on a smaller scale until new kennels were found in Staffordshire. The name was changed to the Staffordshire Bloodhounds and hounds were managed in the same way as before. Another move was made in 1999 to Hinstock in North Shropshire and it seemed sensible to change the name again; this time to the Burne Bloodhounds, again continuing the long established policy. In 2005 Mrs Jan Gration joined the Mastership.
