Anne Stanhope's monument, Shelford church.
On the right of Michael Stonhope?s slab in Shelford church, stands an alabaster monument to the wife of Sir Michael Stanhope. A recumbent figure, the face and hands of which are now much mutilated, lies on the top. Her eight elder children are shewn in relief on the side, and at one end we have the figures swathed in grave clothes, of the three youngest who died as infants. At the other end are the coats of arms as follows:?
On a lozenge Stanhope, quarterly ermine and gules ; a shield bearing quarterly; (1) Stanhope (2) Vert, three grey-hounds courant, or, Mallovel, (3) Sable, a bend between six crosses crosslet, argent, Longvillers, (4) argent, three saltires engrailed sable, impaling gules, a four-square castle in perspective with as many towers and cupolas, viz., one at each angle, argent, standing in water, Rawson; and a lozenge bearing Rawson. The inscription round the edge of the monument runs thus:? "Here lyeth the bodie of the ladie Anne Stanhope wydowe daughter to [Nicholas] Rawson of Aveley in the Countie of Essex Esquire late wyfe to Sir Michaell Stanhope knight which ladie Ann deceased the xx of Februari 1587 VIVIT POST PUNERA VIRTVS."
Stanhope's widow, Anne, the daughter of Nicholas Rawson, of Aveley-Bellhouse, Essex, was allowed to retain the priory of Shelford, during her life. She died on the 20th of February, 1587-8, and was buried in Shelford Church.
