Tomb of 3rd Earl of Rutland - detail
Edward Manners, 3rd Earl of Rutland, 15th Baron de Ros of Helmsley, KG (1548 14 April 1587) was the son of Henry Manners, 2nd Earl of Rutland, whose titles he inherited in 1563.
He married Isabel Holcroft, and they had one child, Elizabeth, born in January 1575.
The Earl died on Good Friday at Puddle Wharf in London, but was brought home for burial. The Earldom of Rutland and Barony of Manners went to his brother John Manners, but the Barony of de Ros went to his daughter.

The tomb was created by Gerard Johanssen of Southwark, a famous Flemish craftsman. Earl Edward lies on a mat, wearing full plate armour. Instead of a gorget protecting his throat he wears a ruff. He wears the Order of the Garter on his left leg. His coronet has disappeared and at his feet is a decorated bull crest. Countess Isabel, daughter of Sir Thomas Holcroft, KT, wears a ruff with the usual dress of the time under an ermine trimmed mantle, her head supported by a cushion. Her only daughter, Elizabeth, kneels at her feet. The inscription on the tomb lists the Earl's activities in the Scottish "troubles" of the time.
