  • Notes 
    • "Thomasine Raleigh (daughter and sole heiress), married firstly Sir John Chichester; secondly Sir William Talbot. Her Inquisition post mortem states that she died on the Monday following the feast of St Peter ad Vincula, 1402. A very worn stone effigy of a lady, said by Pevsner to be from the 14th century, exists in Arlington Church, under a low arch recessed into the north wall of the chancel. Lysons (1822) suggested this represented 'a female of the Raleigh family', and it may therefore represent Thomasine." [Wikipedia]
