Beaufort, John, Earl of Somerset (memorial stones)

Lady Margaret Holland was a wealthy noblewoman and granddaughter of Joan, the Fair Maid of Kent. She married twice and lies upon the tomb monument between her two husbands. Both Somerset and Clarence had been buried elsewhere in the cathedral only to be later exhumed and reburied in the Holland tomb, as directed by their wife. Described as one of the finest fifteenth century monuments in the country, the three alabaster figures show a wealth of carved detail. The plinth and side panels of the tomb chest are of Purbeck Marble.
