    Lord Ryther. He was age 35 at his father's death. His inclusion in the commission of treasons in December, 1460, proves him to have been a Yorkist.
    Effigy at Ryther church - altar tomb with sides richly panelled, the figure of a knight accoutred in martial habit as worn in the era of the Wars of the Roses. His gorget is of mail and his collar of white rose rayonee, or, and a sun in splendour, being the badge of Edvward IV. His head reclines upon his helmet, from which the crest has been cut. His right foot rest against a dog, collared and beneath his left is a talbot, while sword and daggar are on either side. Three sides of the tomb have been beautifully sculptured, that on the north having the figures of four knights and four ladies, while there are three ladies on the west and three knights on the east side. It commemorates the "hero of Towton", Sir William Ryther, Kt.
    Will 20 June 1475.
