A pair of Queen Ann table knives circa 1710 crested for Baron Fairfax of Cameron

Price: £245.00

The Barony of Fairfax of Cameron was created in 1627 and the second Baron served as a prominent Parliamentary general in the British civil wars of the 1640s. Thomas 6th Baron Fairfax (1693-1781) inherited the title from his father in 1710, along with the family estates, but also inherited 300,000 acres in Virginia from his mother in 1719.

During his minority, many of his estates in Yorkshire were sold and, following a visit in the late 1730s, he settled in his American lands in 1747. Shortly after his arrival, he made the acquaintance of a young man with distant family links to the Fairfax family — George Washington. The 6th Baron Fairfax was the only British peer to be resident in America during the War of Independence, dying there in 1782 aged 90. His cousin, the 8th Baron (again resident in America) served as chief mourner at George Washington's funeral (despite having been a British loyalist throughout the War of Independence).
