Historical Context:
Wax rubbing of the funerary brass of Thomas Cheyne (d. 1368). His effigy is interesting because his knees coverings are boiled leather with decorative bells, an uncommon armor type during this time. During his life he was awarded the Manor Beauchamp due to his military service, the manor was kept in his family until 1728. The original brass is located in St. Mary Church in Buckinghamshire, England.
