||The pack was originally formed by Eric Elliott and Paul Lawson, Joint Masters, in 1952, using hounds from Mr Elliotts private pack, the Chesterfield and District Beagles. It was formerly known as the North Staffordshire Moorland Beagles, but for many years most have known it by the Masters name. The pack is entirely private, hounds being owned by the Master. Originally a pack of Beagles, in 2006 it changed to Harriers, and is now the only registered pack of Foot Harriers in Britain. For details of Mr Jonathan Elliotts Beagles, see Bailys 2005-06 and previous editions.
