Many different spaniel breeds were developed during the 19th century, and were often named after the counties in which they were developed, or after their owners. Two strains of larger land spaniel were predominant and were said to have been of “true springer type.” These were the Norfolk and the Shropshire spaniels and were shown and bred as Norfolk Spaniels.
