: Monument of Sir Thomas Thomas Wriothesley, 1st Earl (1551) and Lady Jane (Cheyne), Countess (1574) of Southampton  and their son, Henry Wriothesley  the 2nd Earl (1562), who left money for this monument to be erected. The Countess lies on the top tier and her husband and son lie on either side below. Below are the kneeling figures of the 2nd Earl's children, one of whom, the 3rd Earl became Shakespeare's patron. Marble and alabaster by Gerard Johnson 1594

The cost was £1000 and originally two tombs were planned but eventually only one was contructed. In the vault below are also buried the 3rd, 4th and 5th Earls.

Warblington - St Thomas Becket
The church is some distance from the village of Warblington and on the other side of the A27, so it is unlikely your satnav will find it: it is better to have a 1:50,000 O/S Map of the area; here the church is marked as a circle with cross but the spire is not very evident! . O/S Ref: SU 729 054
Directions from Portsmouth: take the A27 east towards Emsworth, but leave before reaching it, turning left on the A259. You will immediately come to a roundabout where you take the 3rd exit and pass under the A27 (still on the A259). On the other side of the A27 you will immediately come to a second roundabout; again take the 3rd exit this time  on a Yellow Road to the church.
The church is open Monday to Thursday, 10.00 to 3.00 pm but it is better to check this at the parish office (see internet). There is a good car park and toilets outside the church. O/S Ref: SU 728 054

Lady under arch in north wall of south chapel. Unusually her arms are by her side and she appears to be facing to one side. When seen from above it appears that there is no attempt to represent a recumbent position and she is clearly shown standing. Despite the badly worn condition this is a particularly beautiful effigy

Male (?) civilian of Purbeck Marble under arch in south wall of south aisle. Note: cloak tucked under right arm (c.f.  King John at Worcester) and on the wall of the niche behind the effigy a sculpture representing soul being carried to heaven by two angels
