The rose Paul offered was called Cheshunt Hybrid named after the place where his nursery was.  It was a dark red variety and he intimated that the parentage was Mme. de Tartas (a tea rose) crossed by Prince Camille de Rohan (another race - the hybrid perpetuals).  But Paul only suggested its breeding.  Under questioning he admitted it was surmise;  he hadn't really kept the records.

Hybrid Perpetual Roses.
Cheshunt Hybrid
This Rose is a noteworthy member of the Hybrid Perpetuals. The color is deep red shading to violet, picturesque and warm. The blossoms are large and full and fragrant. The plant grows quickly to large size, and is noted for being extremely hardy. It is unlike any other red Rose, unique and distinctive, but one should not cultivate it to the exclusion of all other red Roses. A few of the plants, however, should be grown, along with other red Roses, by way of contrast. Or, where there are clumps of lighter colored flowers, a few of the blossoms of this Rose give effectiveness to the scene.
