    Under a window in South Cowton church are three alabaster statues, one a male recumbent figure in armour; the other two are female figures; but unfortunately there is neither inscription nor heraldic device by which we may identify the persons represented. According to popular belief they are the effigies of Sir Richard Conyers and his two wives, but this popular belief is a popular fallacy, as the inscription above quoted shows clearly that he had only one wife.
    Another local tradition says that the male figure represents Sir Robert Danby, of Yafforth, who was killed at the battle of Bosworth Field, in 1485; and the female figures the two daughters of Sir Richard and Alice Conyers, one of whom, Margaret, married the said Sir Robert.

    Or he died in 1463 (VCH) and his son was the one who died at Boswortih in 1485?
