Footnotes

  • Provenance: Reputedly removed from the Chapel of the Holy Trinity, Staunton Harold.

    The church at Staunton Harold was built in 1653 on the orders of Sir Robert Shirely, Fourth Baronet, and as such is a rare example of Commonwealth architecture. Building this chapel was Sir Robert's way of standing up for 'all thinges sacred' as he saw it: the High Anglican Church and the God-given right of the monarch to rule.
