Family 21
 
The most recent common ancestor of today's family 21 is a Whitefoot Mare, foaled in 1731, and dam of Bajazet, by the Godolphin Arabian.

This family is also of interest from the fact that several generations are very well documented, having been included in both the Dutton records and in Lord Godolphin's records. The latter were published in C M Prior's The Royal Studs of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries (1935). The former have not been published, but were mentioned in Memorials of the Duttons of Dutton in Cheshire, published in 1901; the author commented that "Sir John was a great breeder of horses for that time… A volume of the pedigrees of the horses owned by him and his successor is at Sherborne House." These records are now kept in the Gloucestershire Record Office (D678/1 F14/5/6). A note on the last page also reveals that this stud book was sent to Mr Weatherby in 1791 --

This Book belongs to
Lord Sherborne and
is lent to Mr Weatherby
to compare with his
Book of Pedigrees just Published.
May 18 1791


This note further explains the completeness of the records of some of the earliest broodmares in GSB, as well as the inclusion of mares whose lines had apparently already died out by 1791. It is also of interest to note that some changes to the records of Dutton mares were not made until the edition of 1808, and further, that some of the Dutton versions of pedigrees of the early stallions were not incorporated at all.
 

 
Whitefoot Mare (Bajazet's dam)
She was first entered as a broodmare in the edition of 1793. Her list of produce has remained unchanged since, although some comments were added to her record in 1808. In editions before 1891, this WHITEFOOT MARE was described as

Bred by Sir J DUTTON, foaled in 1731, her dam, the Leedes Mare.

Her entry in the edition of 1891 reads

WHITEFOOT MARE,
Bred by Sir J DUTTON, in 1731, her dam by Leedes, out of the Moonah Barb Mare.
1735 b f by Partner (died a foal) … Sir J Dutton
1736 b f by Hobgoblin … Sir J Dutton

1750 b c Porus, by ditto … Mr Dutton
1751 b c by Whitenose … Mr Dutton

This mare was described on page 29 of the Dutton records

The Leed’s Mare’s Filly 3 Yrs Old 1734 / 18 years old 1749

A Bright Bay Mare 3 Years Old 26 Apr:
1734 her two hind Feet White & a dark
Spot on ye Middle of her Quarter on
ye Off Side

She was got by ye Earl of Godolphin’s
Whitefoot out of my Old Leeds Mare.
vide page: 23 & 5


Regarding her produce, GSB and the Dutton records are, not surprisingly, in agreement, although a few more details are given in the latter
1735 bay filly by Partner (died May 1735)
1736 bay filly by Hobgoblin (kept by Sir John)
1737 bay filly by Hobgoblin (given to Ld Godolphin, Apr 1740)
1738 bay colt called Shireborn (sold to Ld Godolphin, May 1741)
1739 bay filly by Hobgoblin (sold to John [Heathet?], May 1742)
1740 bay colt called Bajazet, by the Godolphin Arabian (sold to Mr Grevile)
no record of cover in 1740
1742 did not prove in foal after being covered by the Godolphin Arabian in 1741
no record of cover 1742-1744
1746 bay filly by the Godolphin Arabian
no record of cover in 1746
1748 bay filly by Marksman
1749 did not prove in foal after being covered by Marksman in 1748
1750 bay colt by Marksman
1751 bay colt by White Nose
1752 bay filly by Squirt
1753 cast her foal by Dormouse; covered by White Spot
1754 no record


Sir James Lowther's records claim that, in 1757, he purchased Bajazet's dam (1755-1775 / Pedigrees, and Purchases / Colts & Fillies bred at Lowther; D\Lons\L9\2\4, Cumbria Record Office, Carlisle)
No. 11 1757
Bought of Lenox Dutton Esqr / a Bay mare 23 Years old, she is the / Dam of Bajazet, she was got by / Whitefoot her dam by Leeds out / of Queens Anns Moonah Barb Mare


However, it seems more likely that Sir James actually purchased the mare called the Splay footed Filly (sister to Bajazet's dam) foaled in 1733. The evidence indicates that Bajazet's dam would have been aged 26 at the time of purchase, hadn't had a live foal for five years, and had not been mentioned for four years. In any case, Sir James's records contain no references to any produce of the mare purchased from Lenox Dutton. (Lenox Dutton, it should be noted, was the nephew of Sir John Dutton, originally James Lenox Naper, who took the name of Dutton when he inherited Sherborne in 1743 after the death of Sir John; he is also, undoubtedly, the "Mr Naper" referred to in the Dutton records).

A second problem with the record of Bajazet's dam is that, although her list of produce in the Dutton Stud and in GSB shows only three sisters to Sherborne (by Hobgoblin), reference is made to four sisters in Lord Godolphin's records (C M Prior, The Royal Studs of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries, 1935). They were (with the years of their foals in the Godolphin stud)

- Hobgoblin Mare; she had foals in 1741, 1742, and 1743, including Shepherdess in 1743 (sold to Mr Martindale in 1747) and Mr Panton's Noble (foaled in 1744, after the sale of his dam to Mr Panton in 1743), both got by the Godolphin Arabian
- Brown Betty (Prior identified as the 1737 sister); she had foals 1745, 1746, 1748, 1749, 1750, 1751, 1752, 1753, including Mirza, by the Godolphin Arabian
- Shireborn (Prior identified as the 1739 sister); she had foals 1741, 1746, 1748, 1749, 1750, 1751, 1752, 1753 including Selima (sent to America) by the Godolphin Arabian
- Miss Dutton; she had foals 1749, 1751, 1753, 1754

There are three possible explanations for the four "sisters" to Sherborne found in the Godolphin records:
(1) There was an un-recorded filly by Hobgoblin in one of the empty years in the list of covers and subsequent produce of Bajazet's dam (Leeds Mare's Filly) (1741, 1742-1745, 1747).
(2) One of the four sisters to Sherborne was a sister in blood; the "Leeds Mare's filly" had a full sister (called "Splay footed Filly" in the Dutton records) and she too had a filly by Hobgoblin in 1738.
(3) One of the "four sisters to Sherborne" was a sister only by the sire (Hobgoblin).

Of the four "sisters" to Sherborne, the Dutton records indicate that
- 1736 bay filly by Hobgoblin (out of the Leeds Mare's Filly) was kept by Sir John
- 1737 bay filly by Hobgoblin (out of the Leeds Mare's Filly) was given to Lord Godolphin, Apr 1740; this is likely to have been Noble's dam, with her first recorded produce in Lord Godolphin's records in 1741
- 1738 bay filly by Hobgoblin (out of the Splay footed Filly) was given to Mr Morgan, Jul 1740
- 1739 bay filly by Hobgoblin (out of the Leeds Mare's Filly) was sold to Sir John [Heathet?] May 1742

At this distance in time, it is not possible to say with certainty which explanation of the "four sisters" is correct; however, the explanation that requires the fewest number of errors to have occurred in the records is that one of these four mares was a sister in blood, her dam having been the "Splay footed filly," full sister to Bajazet's dam.
 

 
Leeds Mare
The horse's name is spelled Leedes in GSB, as is (usually) the family name. However, 18th century records generally referred to the horse as "Leeds."

The Leeds Mare was first entered as a broodmare in the edition of 1793. Her list of produce has remained unchanged since, although some comments were added to her record in the 1808 edition.

Her entry in the edition of 1891 reads

LEEDES MARE,
Got by Leedes, out of the Moonah Barb Mare.
1720 c Tarquin, by the Hampton Court Chesnut Arabian … Mr Strickland
1721 b f by ditto … Mr Lockyer
1722 ch c by Lord Hillsborough's Turk … Sir W Morgan
1723 ch c by Mr Lockyer's Horse … Mr Strickland
1725 ch f Lady Cow, by the Hampton Court Chesnut Arabian (dam, in 1741, of Marksman, by the Godolphin Arabian) … Mr Naper
1726 ch c by Sir W Morgan's Dervise … Lord Godolphin
1727 b c by the Bald Galloway … Lord Godolphin
1729 b c Rosinante, by Commodore Matthews's Persian … Lord Godolphin

1731 b f by Whitefoot … Sir J Dutton
1732 f by ditto … Sir J Dutton
1733 b f by ditto … Sir J Dutton
No produce in 1724, that of 1730 died in 1732, that of 1732 was drowned when young, had none after 1733, and died in 1736.


This mare's entry in the Dutton records, shows the same list of produce as does GSB. She was described on p 19 as

The Leeds Mare
A large Bay Mare wth a Black
Mane, & Tail, her Off Heel behind
white, a Small Star, & a Scar on her
Withers on ye near side occasioned
by a Fistula.
She was got by Leeds, out of the
Queen’s Moony Barb Mare at
Hampton Court.


An estimated foaling date for the "Leeds Mare" is between 1706 (if 30 years old when she died in 1736) and 1716 (4 years old when she had her first documented foal).
 

 
Queen Anne's Moonah Barb Mare
Her first broodmare entry appeared in the edition of 1891.

MOONAH BARB MARE,
Queen Anne's.
     c The Cripple Barb, or Crofts's Bay Barb, by Chillaby, King William's White Barb ... Royal Stud at Hampton Court
*    f by ditto ... Royal Stud at Hampton Court
†   f by Stanyan's Arabian ... Royal Stud at Hampton Court
     f by Leedes ... Royal Stud at Hampton Court
1721 b f Doll, by Darcy's Woodcock ... Sir R Milbanke
*    This mare bred a filly by King William's Black Barb.
†   This mare bred a filly by Whitefoot.
From this mare, Shuttle, Charles XII, Physician, The Doctor, Sweetmeat, Longbow, De Clare, Tom Bowline, Orestes, Hawkstone, Brown Prince, descend.


A few 18th century pedigrees suggest that some of these produce may have been foals of the Moonah Barb Mare's dam, "old Bay Moonah" or "Moony," brought over by Mr Marshall.

References to "Queen Anne's Moonah Barb Mare" occur, with one exception, in pedigrees of horses descended from the Leeds Mare in the Dutton Stud. The one exception is the improbable (if not impossible) pedigree of Icelander [Mr Bowes's, 1773, by Morwick Ball, his dam by Bailey's son of Regulus - Dismal - Moonah Barb Mare]. Dismal was foaled in 1733, raced 1738 and 1739 and retired undefeated after winning the 1000gs and 5 King's plates; he was advertised as a stallion starting in 1740. The most likely explanation of the Icelander pedigree is that at least one generation has been dropped between Queen Ann's Moonah Barb Mare and Dismal.

Another group of pedigrees, distinguished by reference to the Royal African, provide information that Rib's grandam (Queen Anne's Moonah Barb Mare) was foaled after the arrival of the Marshall imports in England.

he was bred by Sir Ralph Millbank, Bart and got by Mr Panton's Old Crab, his Dam was the noted Mare call'd Doll, she was got by Darcy's Woodcock, his Grandam by a True Barb, and called the Moonah-Mare, being brought over in the same Manner as the Royal African her Brother, and both foaled at Hampton Court. [York Courant. 6 Mar 1749-50. Numb. 1273.]

Compared with the GSB entry, it appears that Queen Anne's Moonah Barb Mare is the mare described in the above advertisement as the Moonah-Mare, and that, further, she was got by a "True Barb" and foaled at Hampton Court; her dam, then, was one of the mares imported by Mr Marshall, and believed to have arrived in England late in 1699. The sire of the Royal African is referred to in two advertisements for other horses as the Brown Barb at Hampton Court, so evidently he was also one of the imports. Unfortunately, not all of the nine stallions and five mares acquired for King William in Barbary by Mr Marshall (Hore, The History of Newmarket, and the Annals of the Turf, 1886; iii, p 362) have been identified. Of the mares, only Slugey (dam of Greyhound) and Moony (Bay Moonah) are known to have contributed to today's thoroughbred.

In addition to Rib, Doll was also dam of a mare by Young Greyhound, whose line continued for a few generations, but is not known to survive today.
 

 
Old Bay Moonah
In advertisements in 1753 and 1754 for his Ramper, Dan Corker mentioned this mare as one of the Marshall imports: "… Mr Hutton's White Barb, which was purchased by Mr Marshall, the Royal Stud-Master, and brought to England with Chilliby, Slugy, and Moony."

A few other pedigrees specifically describe the earliest mare as "brought over by Mr Marshall," and provide evidence for additional produce of Moony. Perhaps most interestingly, it looks as if she, as well as her daughter Queen Anne's Moonah Barb Mare, was covered by Leeds. This produced a daughter that was then covered by the Black Turk alias Oxford Arabian.* This line continued for two more generations through a mare by Woodward's White / Grey Turk, and a mare by Hampton Court alias young Childers. This last mare had two produce (a 1754 black colt by Shepherd's Crab and a 1755 bay filly by Mr Blomberg's black Barb) that were offered for sale in 1758 and 1759, before this line vanished from the historical record.

* Perhaps this is the "Black Barb" mentioned in the Duke of Newcastle's records (C M Prior, Early Records of the Thoroughbred Horse, 1924) since Lord Harley (later the 2nd Earl of Oxford) is known to have acquired at least some of the Duke's horses. This Black Barb was noted as sire of two 4 year olds and one 7 year old in the Duke's "Acct of What Horses belongs to the Studd July ye 24th 1711."

The old bay Barb Mare "call'd Old Bay Moonah, that Mr Marshall brought from Barbary," was also dam of a filly by King William's White Barb Chillaby; she produced a mare by Dyer's Dimple, dam, in her turn, of a stallion called Grey Moonah, by the Conyers Arabian. [Ipswich Journal. 18 Apr 1761. No. 1162. ad for a bay horse, late the Marquis of Granby's foaled at Windsor-Forest]

Finally there are some pedigrees where it is not certain whether the imported mare, or the mare foaled at Hampton Court is intended.

Dimple, 8 years old in Apr 1724, 9 years old in March 1724/5

bred in the King’s Stud at Hampton Court; his Sire was the famous Dyers Dimple, and his Dam the Moona Barb Mare, the Dam of the King’s Horse Star, that never was beaten:… a Certificate under Mr Marshal’s, (Stud-Master to the King) Hand, is ready to be produced. [Newcastle Courant. 18 Apr 1724. Numb. 200.]

Hercules (formerly Active and late Lord Clermont's)

got by Dainty Davy, his dam by Regulus, his grand dam by Whitefoot, his gt grand dam by the Stanier's Arabian, and out of the Moonah Barb mare, at Hampton Court [Weatherby's Racing Calendar (newspaper) 27 Aug 1777. Numb. XII.]

Tantrum

He was got by Cripple, sire of Gimcrack, dam by the Old Hampton-Court Childers, grand dam by Old Whitefoot, gt grand dam by Stanyer’s Arabian, out of the Moonah Barb Mare. [Weatherby's Racing Calendar (newspaper) 1 Apr 1784. Numb. I]

Centurion (mentioned in pedigrees of Mr Hodge's Betty-Bye-Blow)

bred at Hampton-Court. His dam was the Mornah [sic] mare, and got by a son of the Conyers Arabian. [Chester Chronicle. 24 Jul. 1775.]
