||The Treweryn Beagles, organized in 1924, hunted essentially the same country as the Radnor Hunt in Philadelphia. For a good portion of its history, Mr. David B. Sharp, Jr. was master of the Treweryn.
The Nantucket Harriers, founded in 1926, hunted jack rabbits during summers on Nantucket Island in Massachusetts. Originally a mounted harrier pack, the hunt became a beagle foot pack known as the Nantucket Beagles. The master was Ms. Rebecca Lanier Trimpi.
In 1964, following the marriage of Mr. Sharp to Ms. Trimpi, a further merger of their two packs of beagles was almost inevitable. Hence, the Nantucket-Treweryn name was born, and the combined pack moved to Middleburg, Virginia and hunted as one for many years. David and Becky Sharp are legendary figures in beagling history, jointly and severally. Some notion of the esteem in which they were held can be derived from the fact that they were the only Americans ever invited to judge beagles at Britain's highly prestigious Peterborough Hound Show and the pack is affiliated to the AMHB.
The NTB is now a subscription pack since 1988, and is owned by the Nantucket-Treweryn Corporation, a Virginia corporation
