  • Notes 
    • "The transepts both contain chapels or chantries. In the north is the Markenfield Chapel and in the south the Mallory Chapel. The former was dedicated to St Andrew and was the burying place of the Markenfields of Markenfield Hall, a fine old fourteenth century house still standing about three miles away on the Harrogate Road. The tomb and effigies in the Markenfield Chapel are those of Sir Thomas Markenfield and his wife who lived in the reign of Edward III. He wears plate armour and a curious collar of park palings with a stag couchant, which has been thought to indicate that he was a ranger or park keeper, and of the party of the House of Lancaster. Close by this monument is an old stone pulpit of Perpendicular design, much worn by weather. It was perhaps an open-air pulpit attached to a stone cross in the churchyard. The Markenfields came to an end apparently with the attainder in 1569 of Thomas Markenfield, who took a part in the Rising of the North, and got his estates confiscated for his pains."
