In the southern portion of the church is a handsome monument to Sir Henry Hawear (or Hawe) and his two wives (Lewis, 1848, 509-512). Henry Hawe (who died 1592) built Wood Hall in 1579. He is depicted with his wife Ursula and a second woman whose name is unknown (Good, 2004; Pevsner and Wilson, 1999, 402; Knott, 2005).


Hawe women's garments:

Wired hair; layered hoods with coif, cap, band and veils hanging behind; closed, figure-of-eight pleated ruffs; doublet-style bodices with standing collars; finely-pleated gowns with sleeves and trains falling from shoulders; girdles hold gowns close to body and tied centre front; forward-tilted farthingale petticoats.
