The donor was probably Sir Thomos George Freake, 2nd Baronet (1848-1920).

The second Baronet was born 12 October and his maternal grandfather was Charles Wright; he graduated from Magdalene College, Cambridge then married in 1868 Frederica, daughter of Col. F. T. Maitland in Holywich, Sussex. He had one son, two daughters and died 21 December 1920. He belonged to the Conservative, Ranelagh, Hurlingham clubs and lived some time at 43 Sloane Street. He was Mayor of the small borough of Dartmouth, Devon in 1897 (abolished in 1974).


In good condition with no damage or repair, some minor wear to the silk on the notepad. The silver Propelling Pencil by Sampson Mordan is probably not original. There is contemporary pen and pencil writing on the pages.
