George III Old English soup ladle London 1805 Richard Crossley crest Henry Penton

An Old English pattern soup ladle by Richard Crossley London 1805, crested for Penton
Price: £250.00

The crest is probably that of Henry Penton (1736-1812) who served as Member of Parliament for Winchester from 1761-1796. On his retirement from the House of Commons he gave a witty speech opposing a tax on dogs. During his lifetime Penton was known for starting a liaison with his wife's maid Martha Judd, a result of which was his wife leaving him and his taking Martha to Italy where he 'had her taught music and languages'. Penton married Martha a few days after his wife's death- Lord Thomond wrote of her that 'Her voice is fine, and she sung so well that Mr Penton said £1,500 a year was offered to her if she would appear upon the Italian stage. The offer was made at Rome'. The location of his London estate still recalls his name- Pentonville.

John Shiffner (b. 1729, died c. 1790) was the son of Matthew Shiffner, a merchant who was a member of the Russia Company. Matthew is believed to have been the son of an Archbishop of Riga and married Agnata Brewer, gouvernante to the Duchess of Courland (later Empress Ann of Russia). Shiffner was naturalised as an Englishman in 1711 and traded from Broad Street in the City of London. The business was later run by his two sons Henry and John.

John Shiffner married Elizabeth Eleanor Godin, daughter of Stephen Peter Godin, in 1753. Godin was of Huguenot descent as well as a member of the Russia Company. He was also a trustee of the Shiffner family and traded as an insurance broker.
