The will of Isabel, Countess of Warwick. 1439

Dealings with the Dead
Vol 2

Project Gutenburg




"My body is to be buried, in the Abbey of Tewksbury; and I desire, that my great Templys with the Baleys be sold to the utmost, and delivered to the monks of that house, so that they grutched not my burial there. Also I will that my statue be made, all naked, with my hair cast backwards, according to the design and model, which Thomas Porchalion has, for that purpose, with Mary Magdalen laying her hand across, and St. John the Evangelist on the right side, and St. Anthony on the left."
