History and mastersEdit
The hounds were owned by a Mr. Cockburn from 1896, before being sold to Edgar Lubbock in 1904. Lubbock (1847–1907) was a lawyer who moved to nearby Caythorpe following his marriage in 1886 and after riding with both the Belvoir and Blankney Hunts, became Master of the Blankney in 1904. Following Lubbock's death, the hounds were sold to Lord Charles Bentinck who sold them on to Sir Robert Filmer in 1909. Vernon Willey, 2nd Baron Barnby (1884–1982), soldier and politician, was Master of the hunt in 1919 and 1933.
