Fiddle tablespoon 1818 Jolly Rambler John Hodson Durand Australia

A fiddle pattern tablespoon engraved The Jolly Rambler and crested and initialled for John Hodson Durand (1761-1830), by William Eley and William Fearn London 1818 .
Price: SOLD

                                                                                                    The Jolly Rambler was a 58-ton cutter launched at Broadstairs in 1813. By 1828 (possibly earlier to judge by the date of this spoon), she belonged to John Hodson Durand (1761-1830). Durand, the second illegitimate son of an Indian Nabob, was MP for Maidstone from 1802 to 1806 (according to one account he was picked up in a coffee house in London by a deputation looking for a candidate). After his death in 1830 the Jolly Rambler was acquired by John Greswell and William Harris who used it to transport themselves and their families from Falmouth to Swan River in New South Wales. This journey took from 6th June 1831 until 18th November 1831 (with a stop at the Cape of Good Hope on the 20th September). In 1832 the Jolly Rambler was sold again and used to transport people and goods to Tasmania, as well as for whaling. John Greswell (d. 1882) was a goldworker and jeweller who had fallen on hard times in England. He was released from debtor's prison in 1830, is recorded as having practised his trade in Australia as well as running a tavern and a nursery garden.
