Lot Essay

These unsealed bottles were found on or near to the site of Wraxall Court in Somerset by the current owner's grandfather. It is highly likely that they originate from the Gorges family who were based at Wraxall from the early 13th century. The impressive Gorges lineage includes Tristram Gorges (d. 1608) who was entrusted by Sir Francis Drake to take the captive Don Pedro de Valdez to the Tower of London following the defeat of the Spanish Armada, and Sir Thomas Gorges (d. 1610) who was second cousin to Elizabeth I.
