"Garnet: liver and white; Mr. G. Pilkington's Stonleigh, Woolton, Liverpool; born 1876, by Tory (6058) -- Jessie; weight 63 1/2 pounds; fee 5 guineas"
-- EKC, January 1881
"Garnet was by Tory, the son of
Garth's Drake and Moore's Mab, out of Jessie, by Sefton's Monarch, out of Sefton's Juno."
-- Hochwalt, 1923
""Jessie", the dam of
"Beau" ["Statter's Beau"],
will always appear prominently in future volumes of the stud as the dam also of "Garnet", and she might be termed pure Sefton, as she was by "Lord Sefton's Monarch" by "Mr. Statter's Manton" by his "Major", out of "Lord Sefton's Dence". "Jessie" was a type of exquisite quality, a little bitch of fair substance but brim-ful of blood-like lines; bred out of her family to a "Drake" dog, she got a big dog like Garnet, and others that were coarser than he is, but for quality she produced the best to the Sefton strain, pure as instanced by her daughter "Fancy" by "Lord Sefton's Marquis"; the latter is more blood like than "Mr. Statter's Beau", and on the female line to produce pure Seftons should be about the most valuable pointer bitch in the Stud Book."
