A Georgian Rope Side Drum

Circa 1800

Measurements: Height: 36cm (14in)



A reduced size rope tension wood cylinder side drum emblazoned with the arms and monogram of E.M.C.P for Elizabeth Mary Chandos-Pole. Complete with breather hole and distinctive tack pattern.

Elizabeth Mary Chandos Pole was the daughter of Sacheverell Pole Esq., of Radbourne Hall, Derbyshire, whose forebears had held the manor of Radbourne since the Norman Conquest. Her elder brother Sacheverell Chandos-Pole was commissioned in the 1st Foot Guards and saw service on the Walcheren Campaign in 1807 and later in the Peninsula. Elizabeth married in 1814 the 7th Lord Byron, a naval officer during the Napoleonic Wars and man entirely different in temperament to his cousin the celebrated poet.
