The Melton Breakfast by Sir Francis Grant

A rare mezzotint of High Leicestershire Lights of the past enjoying breakfast before a hunt. From left to right are Massey Stanley, the Earl of Wilton, Count Matuszevic, Lord Gardner, Walter Little Gilmour, Lyne Stevens, a servant, Sir Frederick Johnstone, Lord Rokeby, Lord Forester, Lord Kinnaird and Roland Errington. Lord Forester, standing by the fire, became Master of the Belvoir, and hunted that country for twenty-eight years. Mr Gilmour and Lord Gardner were well known for their cooks and cellars and the latter was also a poet. Mr Errington was Master of the Quorn from 1835 to 1838. The artist, once President of the Royal Academy, was knighted at the age of fifty-six and lived most of his life in Melton in the heart of Leicestershire hunting country. His family preferred that he should be buried there rather than in St. Paul's Cathedral. Date: 1835
