Sheriff Hutton, St Helen’s. (George Neville, Duke of Bedford. Sir Thomas Gower and Agnes Thwaites) Buried in this church was George Neville, Duke of Bedford, the son of John Neville, Marquis Montagu. A further burial connected to the period is that of Sir Thomas Gower and his wife. Thomas was Constable of Sheriff Hutton castle. No monuments exist to these burials. The burial of Edward of Middleham, Richard III’s son in the church is now thought to be erroneous.
