I have assumed that she is the one whose effigy is at Uttoxeter, as described below.
This would mean she married Ralph Agard after Sir Thomas Kynnersley (d 1505) who had married as his first wife Margery, daughter of John Agarde.
Beneath the west tower in Uttoxeter church are two tombs.
The lady shown in the effigy has been shown to represent Elizabeth the daughter of Henry Hussey of King's Bromley, who died in 1523. The tomb was removed from its original position when the church was being rebuilt in the 1820s and shortened by removing the feet in order to make it fit under a staircase. The tomb was restored by the Kynnersley family in 1889. The tomb is open at the back and has beneath an effigy of a skeleton to show the subject in life and death.
The tomb of Sir Thomas Kynnersley has the image cut into the slab on the top instead of an effigy. A translation of the Latin inscription reads "Here lie the bodies of Thomas Kynnersley of Morley, Knight and of his wives and their sons and daughters. Thomas died in 1505. May God have mercy on their souls. Amen" The first wife of Sir Thomas, was Margery the daughter of John Agarde and she is believed to be depicted in the right hand panel. His second wife was the daughter of Humphrey Wolrich and she was the widow of Henry Petitt of Badger. Sir Thomas and his third wife, Elizabeth Hussey, are shown in the central panel, kneeling beside the cross.
