Sir Robert Colvill was created Lord Colvill of Ochiltree in Scotland in 1651. The 3rd Baronet died in London in 1782, when the title was claimed by his cousin Robert, but this was disallowed by the House of Lords. It is significant that this coat is shown as impalement on a service made in 1745 for Charles Bennett, 2nd Earl of Tankersville, who married Camilla, daughter of Edward Colville of Whitehouse in Co. Durham, a Lady of the Bedchamber to Queen Caroline. Although unlikely due to his age, this service may have been made for Edward Colville, his son.
