Sketch by Willis from The Bodlian Library
(MS7) George Ingylton (1493/4) and wife Sibyl
Position in Church: Formerly in chancel, brass now lost.
Date made: 1493/4.
Date recorded: 1755, by Browne Willis.
Description: Standing figures of man in armour, bare-headed, with left hand raised, right hand joined to that of wife, dressed in gown and mantle, with long cord fastening. A small shield, set at a slant, was somehow suspended at waist level from each figure; below them was an inscription plate. The head and shoulders of the wife's figure were lost before Willis made his drawing.
Style: London Workshop F.
Script: Gothic minuscule.
Heraldry: Man's shield: Quarterly, i and iv, Argent, a chevron between three tuns sable, from the bunghole of each a flame issuing proper, on the chevron a molet for difference, INGLETON; ii, Argent, semy of crescents ..., a lion rampant ..., WANDESFORD, iii, Argent, three gryphons' heads erased and three crosslets fitchy azure, (?) an early form of INGLETON.
Wife's shield: Argent, a cross voided between four crosslets fitchee gules, BILLING.
Notes: This commemorates George, the surviving son and heir of Robert Ingleton, and his wife Sibyl, daughter of Thomas Billing, known to have died in 1494/5, leaving a child heir, Robert (the father of Jane, no II). The brass was certainly lost before 1847, probably by 1800.
