Manners & Vernon Memorials, All Saints', Bakewell :: Shared Description

Sir John Manners (1534 - 1611) was son of Thomas Manners, 1st Earl of Rutland. See SK8039 : Tomb of 1st Earl of Rutland, St Mary's church, Bottesford
He married Dorothy Vernon (1545-1584) daughter of Sir George "King of the Peak" Vernon. They had four children, George, Grace, John and Roger. John died aged 14. These are shown on the tomb, although some are now missing.
The marriage was at first opposed by her father, who finally allowed it, but only if they moved away from Haddon. They were married happily, without great ceremony. Sir George King of the peak Vernon is also buried in Bakewell church with his two wives.

Sir George Manners 1573 - 1623 married Grace Pierrepoint and later Frances Cavendish. They had nine children: John, Henry, Roger, Elizabeth, Eleanor, Frances, Dorothy and Mary. Henry and Roger appear to have died young. One child died in infancy.
John Manners was to become the eighth Earl of Rutland and he is buried in Bottesford church. SK8039 : Memorial to 8th Earl of Rutland, St Mary's Bottesford

Sir George "King of the peak" Vernon was born about 1503 and died August 1565. He married Margaret Talboys, then secondly Matilda Longford . He died without male heirs, so the estates were divided between his two daughters.
