History of the Hunt

Start Year: 1870
End Year: N/A
History: During the latter part of the 18th and early 19th centuries numerous gentlemen at different times had small packs of hounds, and hunted what is now the Percy country, until Lord Elcho (subsequently Lord Wemyss) hunted what is now the Berwickshire, North Northumberland and Percy countries. In 1850 Lord Wemyss lent that part of his country which is now the Percy to W Selby of Biddlestone, who hunted it until 1858. In 1870 Major A Browne, of Doxford Hall, bought Lord Poltimores pack (then the Cattistock), from which the present pack are descended, and hunted the present Percy country. In 1874 the west part of the country was lent to what is now the West Percy. In 1892 the north part of the country was lent to R Burdon Sanderson, but in 1905 Mr Burdon Sanderson retired and the Percy resumed the loan. In 1921 the north west part of the country was lent to Lt Col R H Milvain, who retired in 1955. This part of the country was then hunted by a Committee, and the Hunt was named the Milvain (Percy). The Milvain country was reabsorbed into the Percy in 1997.

Hunt Country
