Ratcliffe on Soar, Holy Trinity, Nottinghamshire, *

“Above are Henry Sacheverell’s (d.1625) three wives, who failed to supply a male heir, each kneeling at a prayer desk…Dresses are full and severe, the headgear sweeping back in long falls. These ladies seem to offer an ominous welcome to the Stuart age.”
