William Wylde and wife medieval brass monument


This brass monument to William Wylde (d1422) and wife can be found in the church of St Mary, Dodford, Northamptonshire.


This brass is interesting in its similarity to that of the brass of John Cressy (d1414) and wife. Both brasses are figures of Knights and their Ladies, and whilst the figures of the Knights are mostly unchanged the costumes of the ladies are very different.


William was an executor for the inheritance of the son of the elder John Cressy whose chest tomb memorial is also in this church.
