Elizabeth FitzHugh, Wife Of Sir Ralph Grey

My theme this week is the magnificent tomb of Sir Ralph Grey, in the Church of St Peter at Chillingham, following on from last week’s Five Windows.

Next to Sir Ralph Grey lies his wife Elizabeth FitzHugh … not to be confused with Elizabeth’s niece, also known as Elizabeth, who as grandmother to Catherine Parr, is a distant relative of today’s Royal Family. As magnificent as the figure of Sir Ralph is, he sadly lies mostly in shadow, whilst his wife gets to bask in the light streaming in through the main window of the church.
