Clumber Spaniel

History

The Clumber Spaniel is said to be developed in the late 16th century and received its name during the French Revolution, 1789. History says that the Duke of Noailles of France gave his kennel of spaniels to the Duke of Newcastle for sanctuary in Nottinghamshire and thus it got its name from the Duke’s residence, Clumber Park.
