An elegant Early 19th Century English Bloor Derby Armorial Soup Bowl, c. 1825. Private Collection.
The Arms are apparently those of Kemeys-Tynte and Swinnerton.
Charles John Kemeys-Tynte, Esq. (1800-1882), was Lord of the Manor of Halswell in Somerset, England, Cefn Mably in Glamorgan, Wales and Burleigh Hall in Leicestershire, England.
He was Colonel of the Royal Glamorgan Regiment of Light Infantry, Member of Parliament for West Somerset from 1832 to 1837 and Member of Parliament for Bridgwater from 1847 to 1865.
On July 18, 1820, he married Elizabeth Swinnerton, the daughter and coheiress of Thomas Swinnerton of Butterton Hall, Staffordshire, England.
The presumption is that the Service this dish came from was made within a year or two of their marriage. Elizabeth died May 10, 1838, and Charles remarried on April 15, 1841.
