The Courtenay monument, in Colyton church

Trans. Devon. Assoc. 39 (1907), illus. pp, 144-155.


Mrs G.H. Radford

Prepared by Michael Steer

The parish church (St. Andrew) is a large and handsome building, chiefly of 15th early 16th century date but with some 13th century work in the chancel and tower. The tombs and monuments of the church are interesting. Against the North wall is a Courtenay tomb, with effigy. The heraldry and the costume indicate that the tomb is that of Margaret, daughter of John Beaufort, Earl of Somerset, who married Thomas Courtenay, 5th Earl of Devon, c. 1431. The arms are those of Courtenay and Beaufort. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
