Lot Essay

William Pope, 1st Earl of Downe (1573-1631) was responsible for initiating the building of the impressive house at Wroxton that still stands today. Commencing circa 1610-15, he completed the central block, leaving the north wing unfinished at his death (the south wing was added in the mid-19th century). Through a complex line of descent, Francis North acquired the Wroxton lease via his sister-in-law in 1681. Wroxton remained in the ownership of the North family until 1933, when the contents were offered at an eight day sale following the death of the 11th Baron North.
