Jane:

Adding on to the response you already received (re: Glogau), I would actually
suspect that this is a reference to the town of Gross Glogau, where the English
record keeper converted "Gross" to "Great" and then abbreviated to "Gt". I
believe this town is in Silesia (near Breslau, Germany; now Wroclaw, Poland).

I hope you can solve your mystery.
