Title

Tombs of the Markenfield Family, Ripon Cathedral - HLS05848

Description

Slide 3 - Markenfield lies three miles from Ripon, and it was in Ripon Minster that its lords were entombed.

It was in the chantry of Saint Andrew's in the aisle of the north transept that was the family burial place, and here yet stands a fine altar-tomb, whereon a knight in plate-armour, showing the arms of a Markenfield lies, with his wife at his side.

The Markenfields, with their near neighbours the Nortons of Norton Conyers, attended high mass at Ripon Cathedral, on throwing in their lot with the rebellion of 1569, the consequences of which brought ruin and the confiscation of their estates, and homes to both families.
