About Margaret Roberts (Fyncham)

"It was without doubt this Thomas who, according to a lost portion of an inscription on a monumental brass in St Mary's Willesden, was the husband of Margaret Roberts, daughter of Robert Fyncham."

"After Margaret's death in 1505 he evidently took as his second wife Ann Adam"

"The union, however, was childless, and after Margaret's death on 23 August 1505, Thomas married Ann Adam"

===========

The Margaret Roberts brass (1505) is situated on the north side of the Chancel. It was removed with the other brasses from the centre to the side when the church was restored in 1964. The tiny figure is wearing a short gown over which is a dress and full skirt trimmed, perhaps, with ermine at the wrists and cut almost round at the neck. A broad embroidered belt, elaborately decorated, is buckled loosely at the waist. Her head-dress is known as the "kennel" or pedimented shape, and it confines the hair beneath a kind of cap. The cap is stiffly wired to keep its shape and has long sides known as "lappets" which hang down past the shoulders. Unfortunately not very much is known about Margaret Roberts, except that she was one of the Roberts of Neasden House, but her minute brass is probably the most beautiful that St Mary’s Church possesses.
