Female Effigy, Winchelsea Church
Female Effigy, Winchelsea Church
14th Century, this female effigy in black marble is one of three in the church, possibly the Godfrey family. Thought to have been moved from Old Winchelsea Church
before it was submerged by the sea.However, recent research into the costumes has dated them to c1320-25. The fine work shows links to London and Canterbury masons. The similarity with the tombs in the south chapel suggests they are also to members of the Alard family, probably Robert, his wife Isabel and brother Henry, who are commemorated by the chantry of 1319
