Coat of arms Viscount Conyngham Cunningham 18th century Featured L Print

Coat of arms Viscount Conyngham Cunningham 18th century

Engraving of the coat of arms of Conyngham Viscount Conyngham, item 93 in an 18th-century publication. Text on this engraving, including motto, reads: 93. Conyngham Viscount Conyngham. OVER FORCE OVER (OVER FORK OVER). About the year 1050, it is said that Warnebald Cunningham saved King Malcolm Canmore (of Scotland) by covering him with hay, concealing him from his pursuer the Pretender King Macbeth. The grateful King Malcolm later bestowed on Warnebald the lands of Cunningham and the motto OVER FORK OVER. Henry Conyngham (1766 a?? 1832) was known as The Lord Conyngham between 1787 and 1789. He was an Anglo-Irish courtier and politician, and the family was connected with Rossgul and Mount Charles in County Donegal. Source: The Peerage of Ireland or A Genealogical History of the Present Nobility of that Kingdom, with engravings of their paternal coats of arms by John Lodge, Deputy Keeper of the Records in Birmingham Tower. Published 1789

1855 Punch Dinosaurs Crystal Palace Featured L Print

1855 Punch Dinosaurs Crystal Palace

1855 Cartoon from Punch's Almanac of that year, ascribed to John Leech. "A visit to the antediluvian reptiles at Sydenham - master Tom strongly objects to having his mind improved". Clockwise from top; Iguanodon (with bird on its wrongly ascribed horn), Megalosaurus, Hylaeosaurus, prehistoric gharial (teleosaurus), ichthyosaur. The actual exhibits were designed to fit the victorian ideal of educating the masses. They were the work of artist Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins (based on the research of Owen, Mantell, Buckland, Conybeare and others). The Crystal Palace Antediluvians were the first life-size reconstructions of dinosaurs, and this cartoon indicates that many saw them as nightmarish monsters of a former age. Children would love dinosaurs ever after
