Two Mollen Falcon Hoods. These two hoods were given to me by Adam Gordon, head keeper and falconer to the Feversham family at Duncombe Park, North Yorkshire England. He in turn had been given them by the Hon. Herbet St. Quintin of Scampston Hall, Yorkshire. St.Quinton enjoyed falconry in the company of Gerald Lascelles and Cecil Duncombe his father-in-law in the 1800's both in Yorkshire and in the North of Scotland. They purchased Peregrines and the occasional Goshawk from Mollen of Valkensvaard together with falconry equipment.
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
