Ch. Newton's Ranger (dog, w: 1859, breeder Mr. S.H. Foster, owner Mr. W.G.S. Newton, EKC 961)

EKC:
""961 Ranger" -- Mr. W.G.S. Newton's, Ranceby Lodge, Sleaford, Lincolnshire (over 65lb.); breeder, Mr. S.H. Foster; born 1859. Pedigree: By "Sir T. Whichcote's Ranger" out of "Mr. Foster's Ruth", "Ranger" by a pointer of Mr. Stanhope's (name unknown) out of "Odlin's Dido"; "Ruth" by "Newbatt's George" out of his "Nell"; "Nell" by "Lord Bentinck's Jovial" out of "Lord Craven's Venus"; "Jovial" by "Edge's Rake" out of "Lord Craven's Venus"; "Venus" by "Lord Villiers's Marcus" out of "Lord Craven's Bess"; "Bess by Mr. J. Twebell's Jewel". Chief Performance: Birmingham, 1st prize, 1861; 2nd prize, 1862; Islington Agricultural Hall, 2nd prize, 1862; champion prize 1863; Leeds, 1st prize 1861; Ashburnham Hall, Cremorne, 1st prize, 1863; champion prize, 1864." -- EKC Studbook, 1874, Volume I


""Newton's Ranger" was another of the early performers, and he was very staunch and brilliant ..." -- G.S. Lowe, 1907, The New Book of the Dog


" "Brockton's Bounce" was a magnificent dog, a winner on the show bench, and of the first Field Trial in England. "Newton's Ranger" was another of the early performers, and he was very staunch and brilliant, but it was in the next five years that the most extraordinary Pointer merit was seen, as quite incomparable was "Sir Richard Garth's Drake", who was just five generations from the Spanish Pointer." -- Robert Leighton, 1910, Dogs and All About Them


""Drake's pedigree" embraces a good deal of "Newton's Ranger" in it , and the later, one of the first show winners, came from Sir Thomas Whichcote's sort, in Lincolnshire, and obtained from Strelly." -- EKC November 1880


"... the inaugural (field) trials of all ... This was at Southill in 1865, when the Pointers were divided into large and small sizes, the former including "Mr. W.R. Brockton's Bounce" and "Mr. W.G. Newton's Ranger", and the latter "Mr. J.H. Whitehouse's Hamlet". In a maximum of 40 for nose, "Bounce" and "Hamlet" were accredited full marks, "Bounce" taking the highest compliment too in pace and range, and also for temperament. He was, therefore, estimated by the judges, the Rev. T. Pearce and Mr. Walker, of Halifax, to have been absolutely perfect. "Hamlet" was the same, both taking 90 in a hundred, but "Ranger" only got 30 for nose, and half marks for pace. This tallied much with his character at home, as although a good, steady, workmanlike dog, he yet was never quite brilliant, such as "Bounce" had the credit of being, and the late Mr. Whitehouse, a capital sportsman, would always contend that he never shot over a better than "Hamlet". -- G.S. Lowe, 1907, The New Book of the Dog
