Gabled Headress

After 13 Mar 1518 Thomas Babington was buried at All Saints Church. Monument to Thomas Babington and Editha Fitzherbert. Excellent painted alabaster monument of the Tudor Period with the colours much refreshed. He in civilian clothes with a purse (aka scrip aka gypciere) hanging from his belt. Dog(s) chewing at her dress. Gabled Headress. The chest tomb of exceptional quality with the fifteen weepers under crocketed canopies broadly undamaged. The weepers are believed to represent Thomas and Editha's children and their respective spouses. The chest tomb bow abuts the south wall of the chancel meaning only three sides visible. Carved by Harpur and Moorecock of Burton on Trent.

After 14 Feb 1531 John Blount was buried at Church of St John The Baptist. Monument to John Blount and Catherine Peshall. Tudor Period. Lancastrian Esses Collar. Long bobbed hair, no facial hair. Bare hands; gauntlets at the right side of the legs. She wearing a short Gabled Headress. Chest tomb somewhat of the wrong period ie Renaissance suggesting this may be a replacement effigy, or re-used. Probably carved by Richard Parker of Burton on Trent.
