St Peter, Theberton - nave

According to John Weever (1631), there was a monument at this church to Sir William Jermy, knight and Elisabeth his wife, who died on 23 Dec 1483.

Its wording was: Hic iacet Willelmus Jermey miles, vnus Infticiar. Domini Regis de Banco fao, et Elifabeth vxos eius, qui quidem Willelmus obijt xxiij die Decembris, Anno Domini Mcccclxxxiij. Quorum animabus propitietur Deus. Amen.

However, in the "Chronicles of Theberton", Henry Doughty states that Jermey is a clerical error for Jenney. Sir William Jenney was one of the justices of the Kings Bench.
