Oxenbridge Tomb, Brede Church
The altar tomb was mutilated about the middle of the last century. Originally there was a kneeling figure with a scroll, thought to be Elizabeth Etchingham - first wife of
Sir Goddard, the Brede Giant.
The missing brasses were replaced by others originally on the floor. They show Anne Oxenbridge (D.1493) in full gown with hands in prayer. Of Robert her husband, only the feet and a leg remain.
The latin inscription reads:
"Here lies Robert Oxenbridge Esq and Anne his wife. He died on 9th of March 1487 and Anne died 27th of February 1493. On whose souls and all those of the faithful departed may God have mercy. Amen"
There is also a small brass to their daughters Margery and Katherine.

Robert in his will (1483) directed his body to be buried in the chapel of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the church of St George at Brede, and he gave the church a missal, a chalice and set of vestments.
