John Wynn, 19th Century, Portrait of Otley Hall, Ipswich, Suffolk, oil on canvas, signed and dated 1889 and further inscribed en verso 'Otley Hall 1889', framed, 27.9 x 43.2cm. Pride of place belongs to the Gosnold family, who lived here for 300 years from c.1400 first as tenants, then as owners. Bartholomew Gosnold (1571-1607) voyaged to the New World, where in 1602 he discovered Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard, which he named after his infant daughter. In 1607, 13 years before the Mayflower landed, he returned to found Jamestown colony in Virginia, the first permanent English-speaking settlement in America. It has been said that the two voyages were planned at the hearthside of Otley Hall.
