Abstract :
On the Marney group brass (formerly in the destroyed church at Little Horkesley) which has been thought to represent Bridget Marney (d.1549) and her two husbands, as dictated by the instructions in her will. Points out anomalies in the group and suggests that while the center figure is indeed Bridget Marney, the male figures are in fact her first husband (William Fynderne, d. before 1517) and her son (Thomas Fynderne, d.1524). Concludes that the brass was not made until ca.1560 when the family's history had become obscure: at that point the instructions for the brass in Bridget Marney's will were not detailed enough to avoid confusion. ;
