About Alice Bernake (Driby)

Alice married William /Bernake/, son of Hugh /Bernake/ and Maud /Woodthorpe/, about 1304 in Tattershall, Lincolnshire, England. (William /Bernake/ was born about 1284 in Tattershall, Lincolnshire, England.)

==================

In our Lady's chapel, at the east end of the south isle, is an altar tomb, having the portraitures of a knight armed cap-a-pié, with a sword hanging from his head, which lies on a cushion, his spurs on, and a lion at his feet; he is in a surcoat of his arms, and hath his shield of them, viz. Bernak, erm. a fess g. By him is his lady with a dog at her feet, and on her mantle are the arms of Bernak, impaling Driby, arg. three cinquefoils and a canton gul. (see vol i. p. 374.) The inscription is lost, but was this,

Obitus Domini Willi de Bernake Mocccorrriro. vio Mensis Aprilis.

Obitus Domine Alicie de Bernake Mocccorlio riio die Aprilis.

This Sir William Bernak, Knt. and Alice his wife, daughter and heiress of Sir Robert de Driby, Knt. were buried in the midst of the dilapidated chancel, from whence this monument was removed, through a covetous desire of the lead wherein they were buried, by John Flowerdew, father to the Baron. It seems the chancel was rebuilt by them and Robert de Driby, the then rector, for their arms were to be seen in the east window.
