    There is a 1320 effigy of a John Hamelin, at Wymondham, Leics:
    HG Somerby wrote in 1849: "The south cross of the church at Wymondham was the appropriate burial place of the Hamelins. At the south end of the cross aisle, was the tomb of an old Knight, in a coat of mail and crossed legged, for one of the Hamelins, but the tomb which is in the form of a wedge, broader at the shoulders than at the feet, had in 1768 neither escutcheon of arms nor inscription. This cross legged figure of Sir John Hamelin, which had long lain neglected on the floor, has, on a late repair of the church, by the laudable attention of the Earl of Harborough, been effectually preserved; and is now fixed upright against one of the walls, secure from further injury.?
