Bookplate of Mrs Marsh
Possibly either Frances Marsh nee Graham (1770-1805)
or Elizabeth Marsh nee Tresilian (1769?-1838)

This coat of arms contains the horse head from her husband William Marsh.  The Castle will be from her family.  On the other hand it could be from another Mrs Marsh but not related.

Bookplate of Anne Marsh-Caldwell 1791-1874 of Linley Wood, Staffordshire, Eastbury, Herts and Deacons, Surrey

  Bookplate of 
Anne Marsh Caldwell

(1791-1874)

Of Linley Wood, Staffordshire, England.

This coat of arms contains the three cold wells from her father James Caldwell, the stag head from her mother Elizabeth Caldwell (nee Stamford) and the horse head from her late husband Arthur Cuthbet Marsh.  This bookplate would date from1860 when she changed her name from Marsh to Marsh Caldwell.

This bookplate is known to exist in a number of books including:
Hudibras by Samuel Butler, 1710.
The Country Housewife's Family Companion by Ellis 1750.
Flora Londinensis by William Curtis, B. White and Son, London, 1777.
An essay on epic poetry by William Hayley, 1782
A New Complete and Universal Body Or of Natural History by George Henry Miller, 1785.
Letters, Revolution in France by Henry Frederic Groenvelt, 1792.
A Systematic Arrangement of British Plants by Withering, 1801
Classical Dictionary by J Lempriere, 1804.
Tennyson Poems by Alfred Tennyson, 1842.
Leaves from my Journal by Robert Grosvernor, 1852.
Song of Roland by Anne Marsh Caldwell, 1854.

Some books with this bookplate ended up in the Linley Wood library after having been inherited by Maj Gen Frederick Crofton Heath-Caldwell.  Many of the Linley Wood library books were distributed among family members in 1913 but the majority were dispersed in 1949 when Capt CH Heath-Caldwell sold the Linley Wood estate.  At this time some of the more valuable books were sent for auction at Sothebys however the majority were sold at the auction of the contents of the house which was held at Linley Wood.  I have over the years been able to buy back a number of these books which have come up for sale on the internet.  If you have any books with this bookplate I would be very pleased to hear from you (jj@jjhc.info).
