Photograph of Hugh Nettlefold wearing court dress suit owned by Nettlefold family and earlier by Strutt family. Associated with complete court dress suit. Black wool coat with silk embroidery, silk waistcoat with silk embroidery, black wool breeches with emboidered border and diamonte buckle, cotton and silk cravat with brass and enamel stud, leather shoes with cut steel buckles, silk stockings, 2 cotton handkerchieves, ceremonial sword with velvet-covered scabbard, black wool tricorn hat with metal box. Suit was owned by the Nettlefold family and used for dressing up, fancy dress and charades. Label on hat box suggests it originally belonged to Edward Strutt, MP for Derby (1830 onwards) and Chancellor of Duchy of Lancaster (1853-4), 1st Baron Belper. Edward Strutt was related to Elizabeth and Martha Strutt, both wives of Joseph Chamberlain. Martha Strutt was grand-grandmother to John Sutton Nettlefold. Suit has been confirmed as 18th century but could be Edward Strutt's court dress, in which case it would date from 1830. Hat supplied by L. & H. Nathan, Naval and Military Outfitters, 17 Coventry St, Piccadilly.
