The Leweston Tomb, Sherborne Abbey.
Here lies John and Joan Leweston, the last of the Lewestons to own Leweston Manor, situated south of Sherborne. This had been in the family since before the conquest. But upon the death of Joan in 1579 and John in 1584 without male issue, the estate fell to his step-son, Sir John Fitzjames. The manor now houses Leweston School.
