Sally Badham, The de la More Effigies at Northmoor (Oxfordshire) and Related Monuments at Winterbourne (Gloucestershire).
This paper examines two groups of mid-fourteenth-century monuments, comprising three military effigies and two associated ladies, at Northmoor (Oxfordshire) and Winterbourne (Gloucestershire). The armour shown on the three military figures is unusual but virtually identical, and all five monuments are evidently from the same workshop.Yet petrologic analysis shows that the stylistic group transcends the material employed. The effigies appear to be the work of a single group of well-trained sculptors who came to the church site to work, using locally available stone rather than carving the figures at a central urban workshop before transporting them to Northmoor and Winterbourne

John de la Moore

Sir Thomas de la Moore or More (died after 1347) of Northmoor, Oxfordshire was an English knight and member of parliament. He was a follower of Edward II of England, and was present at the king's enforced abdication on January 20, 1327.

The north transept, which was long known as the More aisle, has twin tomb recesses containing 14th-century effigies of a knight and a lady, probably Sir Thomas de la More (fl. 1330?1357) and his wife Isabel; (fn. 58) the transept was the property of the Mores and later of the lords of Northmoor manor, who remained liable for its repair in the 17th century.

It is quite likely, therefore, that he was still alive when Baker wrote the final lines of this chronicle in 1358

After the mid 1350s he seems to have eschewed an active role, perhaps because of advancing years, but he is recorded as witnessing deeds in 1359, 1360 and 1361.36 The last reference to him that can be traced is in the last of these deeds, dated 27 February 1361. It is likely that he died soon after, although no precise date of death can be traced
