Blair (1929, 30-31, 44) states that the tomb as constructed c.1400, after the earl's second marriage

tomb effigies of Ralph Neville, Earl of Westmorland, and his two wives, Margaret Stafford, and Johanna Beaufort

summoned to parliament from 6 December, 1389, to 30 November, 1396
was created 1st earl of Westmorland in 1397 and knight of the garter in 1402

Joan Beaufort who was the daughter of John of Gaunt from whose quarries at Tutbury came the alabaster of which this tomb is made

All three wear the Lancastrian S. S. Collar.

In the life-time of his father (9th Richard II.), he was joined with Thomas Clifford, son of Lord Clifford, in the governorship of the city and castle of Carlisle, and was appointed a commissionership for the guardianship of the West Marches. In three years after this he succeeded to the title, and in two years subsequently he was one of the commissioners appointed to treat with the Kings of France and Scotland, touching a truce made by them with the King of England. In the 21st Richard II., he was made constable of the Tower of London, and shortly afterwards advanced in full parliament to the dignity of Earl of Westmoreland. His lordship was the privy council to King Richard, and had much favour from that monarch, yet he was one of the most active in raising Henry, of Lancaster, to the throne, as Henry IV., and was rewarded by the new king in the first year of his reign, with a grant of the county and honour of Richmond for his life, and with the great office of Earl Marshal of England. Soon after this he stoutly resisted the Earl of Northumberland in his rebellion, and forced the Percies, who had advanced as far as Durham, to fall back upon Prudhoe, when the battle of Shrewsbury ensued, in which the gallant Hotspur sustained so signal a defeat, and closed his impetuous career. The earl was afterwards governor of the town and castle of Carlisle, warden of the West Marches towards Scotland, and governor of Roxborough. He was also a knight of the Garter.

thought to be Sir Robert de Cokefield c.1390
Inscribed along the bascinet covering the head of the effigy, an abbreviated form of IHS Nasarenus: Ihc nasare-
Although, as the likely builder of the north aisle, Sir Robert's beautifully carved figure merited the position in the founder's tomb, the effigy fits uneasily in the roughly-hewn stone recess, which has been cut away to accommodate the helm of the effigy. Was the effigy previously sited elsewhere?
The figure wears plate armour with a jewelled sword-belt, his head is on a crested helm, his ringed hands joined as if in prayer, and a lion crouches at his feet. The effigy is very well executed and detailed; it is said to be one of the finest alabaster monuments in the county. It is also probably a true likeness of the subject, depicting an elderly man with distinctive features, rather than the stereo-type images so often seen. A difference in the patterning on the armour suggests that the armour has been repaired and also lends more credence to the effigy having been taken from life.
Sir John Tailboys, of Stallingborough, co. Lincoln, Sheriff of Lincolnshire 1426 (d. 16 Apr 1467). mar. Agnes Cokefield, dau. and hrss. of Robert Cokefield, of Nuthall, co. Nottingham, by his wife Cecily Charnells, dau. and hrss. of Robert Charnells

Knight of the Shire in 1389 and 1392
ARMS OF COKEFIELD — Azure, a cross counter-company argent and gules.
on the helm stands the family crest, namely, out of a ducal coronet, a lion's jambe erect proper
