Just what, may I ask, do you folk have to do with Nantucket?


The Nantucket-Treweryn Beagles are a pack produced by the amalgamation of the Nantucket Beagles (established –as a harrier pack–1926), which used to hunt jack rabbits from June to August on Nantucket Island) with the Treweryn Beagles (established 1924), which used to hunt the country of the Radnor Hunt in Chester County, Pennsylvania.

The packs were joined in 1964 as the result of the marriage of their respective Masters, Mr. & Mrs.David B. Sharp. Mrs. Rebecca Sharp, the grand-daughter of the poet Sydney Lanier, had previously been Master of the Nantucket Beagles.

Since the Nantucket-Treweryn Beagles display the Nantucket colors, I think we can tell who amalgamated whom.

In the 1960s, the Sharps moved to Middleburg, Virginia, and the pack today hunts the country of the Blue Ridge Hunt in Clarke County, Virginia and Jefferson County, West Virginia.
