FITZHUGH: The name Fitzhugh is commonly given to similar patterns with the butterfly motif on the rim. Fitzhugh was a merchant family in England who traded in Canton starting in 1703 and continuing through the eighteenth century. The name is more frequently used in America than England. Fitzhugh family accounts show a large trade in “Chinaware” and the boxes in which it was shipped were marked “T. FITZHUGH.”
CREST: The crest is that of the Manigault family. The Indian on the crest design is supposed to be an American Indian. The original crest, however, was designed and engraved by an Englishman in Australia, and the figure is really that of an Australian bushman.
