Henry Somerset, Marquess of Worcester, [1629-1700] became the First Duke of Beaufort in 1682. Styled as Lord Herbert from 1646 until 1667, he survived the tumultuous and uncertain decades that followed the English civil war by creating remarkable political alliances. While sitting in the Cromwellian Parliament he maintained good relations with the Lord Protector. He was sent to the Tower in 1659 for his part in a Royalist plot and by 1660 was advocating the Restoration. He worked to restore his family’s estates and political power base. He also sought to tame political and religious passions and to bring order and stability. Henry, third marquis of Worcester and first duke of Beaufort, was a powerful regional magnate and became an active member of Charles II’s Privy Council. He refused to swear allegiance to William of Orange.

Edw: Le Davis sculp.
[British, n.d., c.1680.]
Engraving, image 220 x 170mm. 8¾ x 6¾". Trimmed to plate, cut at top, fine impression.
Fanciful portrait of Bertram de Ashburnham (c.1010 – 1066), ‘Constable of Dover Castle and Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports’; in armour, with fabric collar and belt. This unfortunate Bertram is alleged to have met with a variety of deaths: to have been killed while fighting at Hastings, to have been executed by William the Conqueror outside the gates of Canterbury 'where he lived much esteemed, and to have been very active in the cause of liberty and his country', and to have met a similar fate at Dover. His sons, Philip and Michael, are said to have died with their father, and Reginald (Philip's son) to have been in possession of Ashburnham in 1166. It is curious, to say the least, that the Conqueror should have left the Ashburnham lands in the hands of the family of so versatile an opponent. Dover Castle was not in fact very gallantly defended and it is said to have surrendered without a blow. Edward Le Davis (fl.1671- after 1691) Davis was originally apprenticed to David Loggan, but he ran away to France, where he produced various prints between 1671 and 1674 and added ‘Le’ to his name. By 1675 he had returned to England, where he was active as a dealer in paintings as well as an engraver, conducting joint sales with the auctioneer, Edward Millington.

Elizabeth Hamilton [née Gunning], duchess of Hamilton and Brandon (1733-90), courtier. She first met James Hamilton, 6th Duke of Hamilton and Argyll, at a party in January 1752 and they married the following month at a chapel in Curzon Street, Mayfair. The duke had forgotten to bring a ring so married her with a bed-curtain ring fetched from his house. The duke brought Elizabeth back to Scotland where, dividing their time between Edinburgh and Hamilton, they were at the centre of Scottish society. The duke died in 1758 after catching a chill while out hunting and Elizabeth remarried the following year, to 'Handsome Jack Campbell' (1723-1806), a professional soldier. When George III married Princess Charlotte in 1761, Elizabeth was chosen as one of the ladies of the bedchamber, and became a figure of real significance in the household of Queen Charlotte. Engraving after a portrait by Francis Cotes (and copied in reverse from an earlier print from the same portrait).
