Pubd Feby 4th 1819 by S W Fores 50 Piccadilly & 312 Oxford Street.
Hand coloured etching, 18th century watermark;sheet 240 x 335mm (9 x 13½") with large margins, on 18th century watermarked paper. Trimmed within plate.
A satire on Thomas Erskine's, 1st Baron Erskine (1750-1823) marriage to his second wife and mistress Lady Sarah Erskine. They married Gretna Green on 12th October 1818. Erskine, in woman's dress, wearing a huge feathered bonnet over a barrister's wig, holds the right hand of a demure-looking woman, modishly dressed and apparently pregnant. He holds a paper: 'Breach of Promise'. With them are three young children. The smith, in profile to the right, wears Highland dress; he holds a red-hot bar on the anvil and raises his hammer, saying, "I shall make a good thing of this Piece at last." Erskine says: "I have bother'd the Courts in London many times, I'll now try my hand at the Scotch Bar—as to Miss C— she may do her worst since I have got my Letters back." A young woman rushes towards them shouting to stop. Gretna's "runaway marriages" began in 1754 when Lord Hardwicke's Marriage Act came into force in England. Under the Act, if a parent of a person under the age of 21 objected to the minor's marriage, the parent could legally veto the union. The Act tightened the requirements for marrying in England and Wales but did not apply in Scotland, where it was possible for boys to marry at 14 and girls at 12 with or without parental consent. It was, however, only in the 1770s, with the construction of a toll road passing through the hitherto obscure village of Graitney, that Gretna Green became the first easily reachable village over the Scottish border. Scottish law allowed for "irregular marriages", meaning that if a declaration was made before two witnesses, almost anybody had the authority to conduct the marriage ceremony. The blacksmiths in Gretna became known as "anvil priests".
