Sunday, 27 September 2015


On the 25 th I received a special birthday present.
A leaflet about Holkham hall.

What has Holkham Hall to do with Vlieland you wonder .

Jerome Nicholas Vlieland dedicated  this volume of his book  to Colonel George Anson MP.
And  calls himself a most obliged and obedient servant.

to the honourable
Colonel George Anson,M.P.
this volume
is most respectfully inscribed
by his obliged
and most obedient servant,
the author

This George Anson was living in Holkham Hall Norfolk and was 
the second son of Thomas Anson, 1st Viscount Anson, and his wife Anne Margaret, daughter of Thomas Coke, 1st Earl of Leicesterof Holkham Hall, Norfolk. Thomas Anson, 1st Earl of Lichfield was his elder brother. He was educated at Eton College.

The coat of arms of the Coke family is an ostrich .
It is a logo still used in Holkham.
And we thought it might be "the Stork" we are always looking for.

So we can tell you that George Anson and Jerome Nicholas Vlieland knew each other .
That George Anson was living at Holkham .
And that it is likely our Jerome visited Holkham two hundreds years ago.
And I am very happy with my leaflet.Thanks Gilly !
