George Gartshore (1830 to 1917), farrier to the Quorn Hunt

This document relates to the payment of expenses to George Gartshore by his employer, George Harry Booth-Grey, the 7th Earl of Stamford in April 1860. Lord Stamford was Master of the Quorn Hunt from 1856 to 1862.

The Earl of Stamford’s family home was Enville Hall near Stourbridge in the West Midlands and his farrier was George Gartshore. It would seem that George Gartshore was not based in Quorn early in 1860, but by the 1861 census he is living on with his family on Barrow Street (now Station Road) in Quorn. He lived in Quorn for the rest of his life and was farrier to Quorn Hunt for 40 years. More details about George can been seen in Artefact 872, Artefact 276 and Artefact 2432. This document was kindly supplied by the Enville Hall Archives.

The Earl’s family originated from the Greys of Groby and Bradgate and the 7th Earl still owned those Leicestershire estates whilst he was Master of the Hunt.
