  • ID: I7584
  • Name: Thomas Neville
  • Suffix: Baron Furnival
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: in Raby, Durham
  • Death: 14 MAR 1407
  • Burial: Worksop Priory, Nottinghamshire
  • Occupation: Treasurer of England.
  • MEM: Worksop Priory, Notts; mutilated effigy
  • Note: 1

    He died in 1406, and was buried beneath a stately alabaster monument above the high choir, Pigot saying,
    "And Sr Thomas Nevill Treasorer of England,
    Aboven the quere is tumulate, his tumbe is to see
    In the middes, for most royall there it doth stand."
    A part of the effigy from this monument still exists at Worksop, but in a more mutilated state than that of Thomas, Lord Furnival. It has the same camail and gussets of mail, the same bascinet, and enriched hip sword-belt; but the head in this instance reposes on a tilting helmet. On the jupon is indicated the saltier of the house of Nevil, with a martlet as a mark of difference.
    His wife Joan, who died previously, viz, in 1395, was buried on the left side of her husband and near him. Her monumental slab is now in Barlborough church, and still retains a portion of its inscription. In 1707, as stated in "Church Notes," written by Bassano the herald painter of Derby, in that year, it ran thus :?"Hic jacet ? Johanna fil ? haec ? Willielmi Fournival ? Tho?" In the dexter chief corner was a saltier the arms of Nevil, in the sinister those of Furnival; and at the bottom of the monument these two coats were impaled together on an escutcheon, supported by two talbots collared and belted.
    It has been suggested with much probability by Hunter, in his "History of Hallamshire," p. 57, that Judge Rodes, who was seneschal to the Earl of Shrewsbury at the time of the Reformation, might have obtained this monument from the Priory church when it was in ruins, as an interesting memorial of one of that family from whom his patron had inherited a vast estate; and that he carried it off to the church at Barlborough, in which parish his newly acquired estate was situated.
