"The Westminster Kennel Club and the St. Louis Kennel Club, organizations interested in Pointers, imported a number of good ones and some which did not exactly please the American fancy. The St. Louis group imported "Sleaford" in 1877, but had indifferent success. Undaunted, they continued their importations. In 1877 they secured, through E.C. Stirling, the heavyweight, white and liver "Bow", imported by T.H. Scott. He proved to be a bench show winner and also placed in field trials." -- The Sportsman's Bookshelf, Volume XIII, Hunting Dogs and Their Uses: The Stackpole Company, Harrisburg, PA, 1951


""1253 Nina" -- Mr. J.H. Whitehouse's, Ipsley Court, Warwick (between 60lb. and 45lb.); breeder, owner; born April, 1867; colour, lemon and white. Pedigree: By "Whitehouse's Hamlet (No.876)" out of "Sal", by "Powis's Romp (No.998)"." -- EKC Studbook, 1874, Vol.I

"In breeding "Sleaford" was by "MacGregor" out of "Nina", who was by "Hamlet" out of "Sal". "Macgregor" was by "Sancho" out of "Blanche"." -- Hochwalt, 1911, Pointers and Setters

""Sleaford" was a white and liver dog of fair bench show form, possessed of a certain amount of independence and dash. Before coming to America he won first at the Birmingham show in the lightweight class, and in this country he also won several firsts, although we find numerous V.H.C's interspersed among his winnings. In breeding he carried the Whitehouse blood on his dam's side, she being out of "Nina", which was by "Hamlet", out of "Sal". His sire was "MacGregor", a son of "Sancho", out of "Blanche"." -- Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer
