John Manners

For John Manners (illegitimate son of Lord William Manners, younger brother of 3rd Duke of Rutland), of Hanby Hall, who died 23 September 1792. His wife was the Lady Louisa Tollemache who, on the death of her brother Wilbraham in 1821, became Countess of Dysart in her own right.

Motto: Pour y parvenir (to gain one's end).


William Richard Middlemore

For William Richard Middlemore of Somerby Hall, who died 7 March 1772 aged 42, being the last of his line. He had married Mary Douglas, daughter and co-heir of John Douglas of Carlisle, a descendent of the Douglas of Shakespeare's Henry IV.

(Note that the sinister white background has been extended to allow the black bird of the crest to be painted.)

Motto: Medio tutissimus ibis. (The middle way is best).

There is a permanent memorial on the north wall of the Corpus Christi chapel.


Henry Pennant

Hatchment for Henry Pennant, Esq., born 1713, who died unmarried on 31 May, 1772 and was buried in St. Wulfram's on 2 June, 1772.

He owned a house in Grantham High Street from 1756 and also had extensive property in the family sugar plantations of Jamaica. He left these in his will to his elder brother John, whose son Richard eventually inherited the entire estate. Richard, who later opened up the Welsh slate trade, was created Baron Penrhyn in 1783, being then granted the arms shown on the hatchment, which could not have been painted before this date, eleven years after Henry's death.

It is possible that the hatchment was set up by the new baron as a mark of respect for his uncle, since there is no other memorial either in the church or in the churchyard.


Frances Augusta

The hatchment of a widow, Frances Augusta, second wife of Rev. Samuel Herbert DD and daughter of William Manners of Spittlegate.
