A 34 *Bolton Mare 1776 is a daughter of Sally Wright x Yorick, whose
further pedigree is uncertain.
She probably descended from one of Tayloe’s 7 mares:
The last three mares are known to have been bred to Yorick, so it may be
most likely that Sally Wright is a daughter of one of them. By dates,
*Jenny Cameron and *Muslinface are unlikely. Sally Wright's dam is
described as a full-bred mare, therefore *Valiant mare, *Ranter mare and
*Dotterel mare are unlikely. *Selima has a well-accounted produce
record, leaving *Lady Northumberland. It is of interest that a gap
in *Lady Northumberland's produce record exists from her importation in
1769 to c1779 when she foaled a filly x Shakespeare. If *Lady Northumberland
is indeed Sally Wright's dam she would have brought a cross of blood to
the family, and Tayloe's stud, that was without other representation.
*Ranter Mare (*Ranter 1755 b - mare x Gift, pedigree unknown)
*Dotterel Mare (*Dotterel 1756 g - Tayloe's Camilla, pedigree unknown)
*Lady Northumberland (c1767, Northumberland - Shakespeare - Crimp's dam
