The Crests of Amhurst, Daniel and Tyssen
The crests as engraved upon this Pair of George III English Sterling Silver Oval
Footed Salvers by William Bennett hallmarked London 1808 are those of the families
of Amhurst, Daniel and Tyssen. They may be blazoned as follows:

escutcheon of the second charged with an estoile of the first (for Tyssen)
Given the date of manufacture this pair of salvers they were in all probability in the
possession of William George Tyssen Daniel (afterwards Tyssen-Amhurst) (born
18th December 1801 died 30th December 1855), of Didlington Hall, in the County of
Norfolk, of Hackney in the County of Middlesex and of Foulden Hall in the County of

Fountaine (died 9th February 1854), the eldest daughter of Andrew Fountaine, of
Narford Hall in the County of Norfolk on the 13th April 1834.
William served as the High Sheriff of Norfolk for the year 1843. By Royal Sign
Manual dated 6th August 1852, William assumed the name Tyssen-Amhurst
discontinuing that of Daniel.
