[Monument in Sevington Church]

Artist(s) : Thomas Dineley (Draughtsman)

Pen and ink sketch of upper surface of sepulchral monument in Sevington Church, Kent, representing in bas-relief a figure in full armour, with spurs and sword, hands joined in prayer.
At least five other monuments commemorating members of the Barry family were placed in the same church. This one, which was probably inlaid with brass, had already disappeared before 1756-1760.
