What is certain is that the
Clumber Spaniel breed took its name from Clumber Park
and that the Duke of Newcastle's gamekeeper, William Mansell, is
credited with their development and improvement. Prince Albert, the
Prince consort of Queen Victoria, was a fancier and promoter of the
breed, as was his son King Edward VII, who bred them at Sandringham
castle. The breed was shown in England from 1859 onward.
