About This Hunt
Hunt Country The country, which lies in Northumberland, extends some 23 miles north to south and 20 miles east to west. Best centres: Alnwick, Alnmouth, Chathill, Seahouses.
Hunt History During the latter part of the 18th and early 19th centuries numerous gentlemen at different times had small packs of hounds, and hunted what is now the Percy country, until Lord Elcho (subsequently Lord Wemyss) hunted what is now the Berwickshire, North Northumberland and Percy countries. In 1850 Lord Wemyss lent that part of his country which is now the Percy to Mr. W. Selby of Biddlestone, who hunted it until 1858. In 1870 Major A. Brown, of Doxford Hall, bought Lord Poltimore's pack (then the Cattistock), from which the present pack are descended, and hunted the present Percy country. In 1874 the west part of the country was lent to what is now the West Percy. In 1892 Mr. Burdon Sanderson retired and the Percy resumed the loan. In 1921 the north west part of the country was lent to Lt.-Col. R.H. Milvain, who retired in 1955. The part of the country was then hunted by a Committee, and the Hunt was named the Milvain (Percy). The Milvain country was reabsorbed into the Percy in 1997.
Secretary: Mrs. E. Howie.
