Sir John de Dummer, living 1268 - 1320
Sir John married a sister of Sir William Paynel, Baron Paynel, and they had the following children:
* Thomas de Dommer
* Richard de Dommer (d.s.p., decessit sine prole, died without issue.)
* John de Dommer who married and had children. John succeeded to the estate in Pendomer, Somerset; his grandson and last male heir sold it in 1408. The line terminated in co-heiresses in the early 15th century.
Pendomer is at the end of a single track and somewhat pot-holed lane, which then terminates. The village now consists only of a few houses and the church; the entrance to the church yard (which is sign posted) appears to be shared by the manor house.
The effigy (said to be of Sir John de Dummer, 1268-1320) is of c. 1320 and not in situ but now in the recess in north wall of nave. Note the arms carved in relief on both the shield, which is held by a strap around the left arm, and surcoat.
