The Marital Arms of Sheffield and Sabine
The armorial bearings as engraved upon this George II English Sterling Silver Footed
Salver by William Peaston hallmarked London 1751 are those of the family of Sheffield
impaling Sabine. These armorial bearings denote the marshalling of a marital coat
showing on the dexter (the heraldic right on the left as you view the piece) the arms of
the husband and on the sinister (the heraldic left on the right as you view it) the arms
of the wife. They may be blazoned as follows:
Arms:
(on the dexter) Argent a chevron between three garbs gules (for Sheffield)
(on the sinister) Quarterly 1st and 4th Argent an escallop gules on a chief
sable two mullets pierced of the first (for Sabine) 2nd and 3rd
Sable three butterflies or two and one (for Sabyn)
Crest: A boar’s head erased at the neck or (for Sheffield)
Motto: Comiter sed fortiter [Courteously but firmly]
These armorial bearings undoubtedly commemorate the marriage of Sir Charles
Herbert Sheffield (born circa 1706 died 5th September 1774), the 1st Baronet of
Normanby in the County of Lincolnshire and Margaretta Diana Sabine (born 20th
July 1715 died 7th January 1762). Charles and Margaretta were married on the 25th
April 1741.
Charles was the was illegitimate son of John Sheffield, the 1st Duke of
Buckingham and Normanby, and Frances Stewart, whilst Margaretta was one of the
daughters of General Joseph Sabine, of Tewin in the County of Hertfordshire and his
second wife, Margaretta Newsham.
As an aside, Charles owned Buckingham House which he sold to King George III for
the sum of £21,000 in 1761 that was renamed as Buckingham Palace.
