  • Notes 
    • The Early History of Mapledurham
      (Oxford Record Society, 1925) by Rev. A. H. Cooke, MA, Sc. D., dean, fellow and tutor of King's College, Cambridge.

      .... Most especially interesting are the following from p. 27 : "John Iwardeby th'elder and Jane his wife kneeling opposite each other with scrolls containing their names."

      The scrolls were reported to say:
      "Ihu my maker Bring me to Bliss John Iwardeby th'elder and on hers
      "Mary moder I pray you help me Jane daughter of Hugh Ansley Knight." And continuing: "In the other compartment, John Iwardby the younger and Katherine his wife, both kneeling, right hands clasped, left hands uplifted; from his mouth a scroll (broken and defaced in 1644) with the words 'God have mercy on me John the sone of John and Jane Iwardbye'; on her scroll, 'Helpe Mary moder
      most gracious lady me Katyn daughter of Edward Lord Bergavenny."

      Further there was an inscription:
      "John Iwardby and Katyn his wife specially you pray Say as oft as ye
      see this window ij De profundis for him or on pater noster and on ave for them and for Edward [Ld Bergavenny], Elizabeth [Despenser], John [Iwardby] and Jane [nee Annesley, widow of Lynde] their fathers and moders and for ye soule of John the which by the wall lieth the son of the said John and Katherine on whom Jusu have mercy."

      {My note: I think this should be Beauchamp rather than Despenser,
      although Elizabeth Beauchamp's mother was a Despenser.)

      Tim Pow Lybbs
      "...Reverting to the reported memorials in Mapledurham church, the
      interesting thing is that there is a clear reference to an infant son to
      John and Katherine. But the final words quoted [see below] do not (in fact) say "the son" but merely "son", allowing for one or more such sons. The odd thing is that the Fitznells Cartulary has the husband of Katherine Neville as Sir John and the memorial to this couple in Mapledurham church does not do this nor does it add "knight" after his name as it does for another, "Hugh Ansley Knight", in the same north chancel window."
