Is this his effigy - although dated to 1330, after Alice Cronard?s husband died?
St. Mary?s, Bures (Suffolk)?s rarest and most remarkable treasure is the effigy of a knight, long believed to be Sir Richard de Cornard.
Carved in sweet chestnut wood around 1330, it remains in beautiful condition and gives both an excellent example of knightly fashion of the time and a striking impression of a real man.
The font at St. Mary?s, Bures, presented by the Waldegrave family, has the arms of de Bures, Mortimer of Clare, England, de Vere, FitzRalph, Mortimer, Cornard and Waldegrave.
