St Mary's Church, Reigate - Howard of Effingham plaque
St Mary's Church, Reigate - Howard of Effingham plaque
A close up of the Victorian brass plaque commemorating the church's most famous remains, those of Lord Howard of Effingham, Admiral of the Fleet that defeated the Spanish Armada in 1588. The Howards lived at Reigate Priory (see TQ2549 : Reigate Priory), and the family vault is under the chancel of St Mary's Church.

The vault itself is unmarked, this plaque being Victorian, marking the tercentenary of the Armada, using wording which echoes those on his coffin. See TQ2550 : St Mary's Church, Reigate - the sanctuary for a wider view showing the situation of the plaque.

The plaque reads:

Here in the Vault beneath at midnight the Dec 25 1624 lyeth the body of Charles Howarde Earl of Nottingham Admyrall of Englande Generall of Queen Elizabeth’s Royal Navey at Sea against the Spanyards invinsable Navye in the year of our Lord 1588 who departed this Life at Haling-House the 14 day of December in the year of our Lorde 1624 AEtatis Suae 87.
