Description

Sir Thomas Bromley was a judge and was appointed Chief Justice of the King's Bench in 1553. He died in 1555. The chest tomb of Sir Thomas and his wife, Isabel Lyster, features their recumbent effigies, that of Sir Thomas wearing judicial robes. On the end panels of the tomb are carved shields with angel supports. On the side are three panels separated by candelabra decoration: shields in the left and right panels, and a female figure - the couple's daughter, Margaret - in the central panel. Margaret is buried with her husband, Sir Richard Newport, in a chest tomb nearby.
