Lady Hamilton's violin:  

  Betts Front   Scoll to crop   Betts Back


A violin made by John Betts (London, c.1800) and believed to have belonged Lady Emma Hamilton has been discovered in Kendal, Cumbria.  According to a letter which came with the violin, it passed through the family of Lady Hamilton's butler, John Jefferies, who were shopkeepers in Brighton.  The instrument was purchased for English composer George Lloyd (1913-1998) when he was taken on as a pupil by violinist Albert Sammons at the age of 16 in 1929.
