Notes on 'Morice'.
The coat of arms engraved to the front of this plate is 'gules, a lion rampant regardant' with a crest above of 'a falcon standing on a perch'. This coat of arms is for Morice of Werrington, Devon. The 3rd Baronet, Sir William Morice (1707 - 1750) succeeded his Father the 2nd Baronet in 1726. Sir William died in 1750 without issue and the Baronetcy became extinct.
Based on the touch mark for John Carpenter (1711 - 1747) and the style of the plate it is likely that this plate was made for Sir William Morice, 3rd Baronet by John Carpenter.
