A small two-handled trophy cup with contemporary horse-racing inscription, by William and John Deane in London in 1764.
Price: £750.00
                                                                                                         This cup was presented by George Trenchard of Lichet Maltravers, near Poole in Dorset, as the Lichet Cup in 1766. It was won by Robert Kingsbury's horse BEUCEPHALUS and Robert Kingsbury's initials appear on the front of the cup.
                                                                                                         The Trenchard family's estates in Hampshire date back to the time of Henry I. They acquired Litchet Maltravers in the seventeenth century. George Trenchard (who died in 1768) presented this cup to the winner, Robert Kingsbury and his horse Beaucephalus (named after that of Alexander the Great). The Kingsbury family were a prominent yeoman family in Dorset but it had many branches and it has not proved possible to establish the branch from which this Robert Kingsbury came.
