Not much is known about the Walworth Yeomanry except that it was a unit of 18 to 20 men from Londonderry. Walworth is just outside Limavady in Ballykelly and used to belong to the ancient guild of the Fishmongers (the most famous City fishmonger is Sir William Walworth, who, as Lord Mayor of London in 1381, helped bring the Peasants' Revolt to an end by stabbing the rebel Wat Tyler to death at Smithfield in the presence of King Richard II). The Irish Registration Act was passed in 1843 and lasted only a short while, until August 1846. All firearms owned in Ireland during that period had to be Registered and marked with the relevant County code. The Baker rifle (officially known as the Pattern 1800 Infantry Rifle) was a flintlock rifle used by the Rifle Regiments of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars. It was the first standard-issue, British-made rifle accepted by the British armed forces. The Baker Rifle was first produced in 1800 by Ezekiel Baker, a master gunsmith from Whitechapel. The famous 95th Rifles, Light Infantry Regiments adopted these accurate rifles (the hit Napoleonic War, Book & TV series Sharpe's Rifles featured this pattern of rifle). The British Army was still issuing the Infantry Rifle in the 1830s. This is a superb, very rare, original, Baker rifle By J. Richards (There were many gun smiths named J. Richards working in both London & the provinces in the period). It has all original wood work and metal work all in excellent condition with correct brass mounts, bayonet bar, flip up 2 leaf rear sight, brass blade fore sight, original correct steel ram rod and sling swivels. The rifle measures 44 ½” overall with a 29 ½” brown wash steel barrel. The bore has just light staining and crisp well defined rifling.
