Norfolk: Foxley, Parish Church of St Thomas

O.S. TG 039217

St Thomas is a small church with a west tower, late thirteenth-century chancel, later nave with four three-light fifteenth-century windows, and a south porch. In the late sixteenth century, heraldry was recorded in the chancel windows, including the shield of Grey quartering Hastings and Valence, for Reginald de Grey, who held land here and presented to the church on several occasions between 1404 and 1436, and also of Charles Somerset (c.1460 – 1526), 1st Earl of Worcester, in the garter. Somerset received the Order of the Garter c.1496, owned land here, and presented to the church in 1515. Shields of Felton and Curson were also present. There are a few fifteenth-century fragments in one window, which are from the same workshop as Ringland.
