  • Notes 
    • Aubrey noted:
      " Hie iacet Ricardus Sander gentylman qui obiit anno dni MCCCCLXXX et Agnes uxor eius que obiit vii die Januarii Anno dni MCCCCLXXXV cuius anime propicietur deus Amen."

      From the marriage of William Saunders with his wife Joan there were the following children:-
      1. Richard Saunders, who inherited Charlwood and married Agnes, by whom he had a son Nicholas, whose descendants held the Charlwood estate till the 17th century. Richard Saunders died in 1480, and his wife Agnes on 7 Jan., 1486, as appears by a copy of an inscription at Charlwood Church, preserved in the Harleian MS., No. 1397. In addition to Nicholas, Richard Saunders had two sons, William and James; James, who was the third son, died on 19 Feb., 1511 (Harleian MS., No. 1397); Nicholas, the son of Richard Saunders, died on 29 Aug., 1553; he married Alice, the daughter of John Hungate of York, and their son Thomas Saunders, afterwards Sir Thomas Saunders, knt., was King's Remembrancer of the Exchequer. Nicholas and his wife Alice were buried at Charlwood Church, where there still remains an interesting brass to their memory (see illustration), bearing this inscription:-
      Here is buryed Nicholas Saunder Esquyer, and Alys his wife, daughter of John Hungate of the Countey of Yorke Esquyer, ffather and mother to Thomas Saunder Knyght, ye King's Remembrance of thexcheker whiche Nicholas deceased the xxix day of August ye firste yere of ye reigne of quene Mary A'MV'LIII.

      A short history of St Nicholas Church, Charlwood
      The Saunders family lived at Charlwood Place. In 1480 Richard Saunders died aged 30. His mother and widow extended the south aisle by building a chantry chapel in which a priest said daily prayers in the expectation of speeding Richardís soul through purgatory to heaven. The screen separating the chapel from the rest of the church is the only sizeable piece of medieval wood carving in Surrey. The upper part, featuring the initials R.S., was probably around Richardís tomb.

      Across the entrance to the present chancel is a screen of eighteen panels (four of whichare over the central opening) with ogee cinquefoiled heads and trefoiled tracery. The cornice is paintedand gilded; the lower part carved with a running vinepattern, and the upper has the initials R.S. (for RichardSander, who died in 1480)
