notes

From Early Georgian, 1714-1760 By Henry Avray Tipping. Page 292. Edgcote, Northamptonshire.

And so Edgcote, after five years of Cromwell ownership, escheats to the crown, and is one of the manors in which Ann of Cleves is given a interest. ... in 1543 she parts her interest to Richard Chauncey, who soon obtains the reversion fee from the Crown. He was a Northamptons man, his father and grandfaher being descr as “ of the TOWN of Northampton.” needed a home in county ... his son, Sir Toby, who succeeded him in 1585, and in 1608, is roomily extended on an altar tomb wide enough to accommodate his two v (Fig. 362). He is in armour and the lion at his feet thoughtfully divides its tail into two so to form curled supports to the weighty footgear. Below, at the end, we see his arms flanked by those of Shelley and Risley for his wives, while along the side his sons and his daughters, both alive dead, sufficiently fill the long space. On the wall behind, a charming Charles II mount with scrolls and fruit swags, commemorates his grandson, the second Toby Chauncey.
