Early clumber is history, a researcher writes, ""lost in a tricky web of folklore and misinformation."" We can pick up a reliable trail as late as 1700 in Nottinghamshire, England. There, the Duke of Newcastle and his gamekeeper established a huge spaniel known as Clumber Park, the Duke's vast estate.
Clerts became a favorite for many gamebird hunters among the area's titled families and landowners. Since the Duke's day burden has been popular with the British royals, including Edward VII and George V (an important clumber breeder in his day). The breed is described by its adherents as mischievous, mischievous, stubborn, affectionate and manipulative, but through it all Clumber retains a touch of regal dignity that marks him as a companion of the crow's head.
As an item of the British upper crust, clovers were a popular subject for major sports artists and painters in the days after British nationalism. Today, these photos show that the breed has changed but little in all the years.
Clicks were on the scene for the first British dog show held in the mid-1800s. They were introduced in the US, around the same time, in Canada. A careful studybook on the breed was kept in the US before the AKC was established, and when the organization was founded in 1884, Clumber was one of the nine charter breeds of the AKC.
