30 3/8 x 24 in. (77.1 x 62.8 cm.)

George Hugh de Vernon Wilbraham (b. 1890), Delamere House, Northwich, Cheshire.
Acquired from Leggatt Brothers, London, in 1931, by Harold Pearson, 2nd Viscount Cowdray.

An old label on the reverse of the picture indicates that this portrait was in the collection of George Wilbraham of Northwich, Cheshire, and it seems probable that this refers to George Hugh de Vernon Wilbraham of Delamere House, Northwich, Cheshire.
The Wilbraham family, which was well established in Cheshire by the early 16th century, moved the family seat in 1784 from Nantwich to Cuddington where they built Delamere Lodge, later renamed Delamere House, one of the largest houses in the district. Cornelis Jonson executed a number of portraits of members of the family, including a portrait of Roger Wilbraham (1589-1670) of Dorfold.
In Image 4 the portrait can just be seen , on the far left, hanging in the entrance hall at Cowdray Park.
Image 5 shows Cowdray Park.
