St. Peter ad Vincular, Broad Hinton, Wiltshire



Back to Inside Page


This is an interesting monument as well as impressive - lots of little things to notice like the design of the shoes, the cushion they are kneeling on and detail of armour.  Sadly many of these photographs have come out 'grainy' - no edge definition and somehow blurred.

The church history booklet tells the story of this monument, including the tale of how Sir Thomas came to have no hands.  It was said that one day he found his wife reading the Bible, took it off her and threw it in the fire.  His hands withered and dropped off.  Was this a punishment, or due to him trying to retrieve it from the fire?

His eight children depicted here also have no hands.  The book suggests a possible reason was that the statue may have been mutilated by Cromwell's troops, but does ask why they did not inflict other damage.
