A collection of historical and genalogical records
On 6 October 1860 in St Johns, Edinburgh, Hon. Mark George Kerr Rolle (1835–1907) (born Mark George Kerr Trefusis), of Stevenstone, St Giles in the Wood, Devon, married Lady Gertrude Jane Douglas (1838-1924) a daughter of George Sholto Douglas, 17th Earl of Morton (d.1858). Rolle produced no male progeny, thus the entail male under Lord Rolle's will precluded his daughters from the Rolle inheritance. His two daughters were:
Gertrude Emily Rolle, who married Brig.-Gen. Sir Hugh Henry John Drummond, 1st Baronet (1859–1924) of Lasswade, a younger son of Sir James Williams-Drummond, 3rd Baronet, of Hawthornden. She had 1 daughter.
Mary Frances Rolle (died 1945), who married on 7 June 1894 Major Arthur Scott Brown (b.1866) of Buckland Filleigh, North Devon. She had 2 daughters.
This small vase with combined Rolle and Douglas coats of arms would appear to heave been created for this Devon family.
