Long Description:
A table tomb to John Harrington (d.1524) and wife Alice in St Peter & St Paul's church, Exton.

The fine marble table tomb of John Harington (d. 1524) and his wife Alice, with recumbent alabaster effigies, is now under the tower, but formerly stood on the south side of the body of the church. Each of the long sides has three panels with the arms of Harington and Culpeper and round the verge is a Latin inscription.

The male effigy is a replica of that of the Earl of Wiltshire with his tomb in St Peter’s Church, Lowick.

At John Harrington’s feet are a lion and a small figure of a bedesman, while close to his wife’s feet two dogs nibble the hem of her skirt.
Approximate Age of Artefact: 1524
