Sir Thomas de Cobham
1367
St Mary's Church, Cobham, Kent, England

Thomas de Cobham, died 20 December 1367. Thomas wears a bascinet with aventail protecting the neck and shoulders, with plate mail covering the arms and ring mail covering the wrists and hands. The thighs are protected with studded armour, behind each stud was a round plate to spread the blow. Genouliers protect the knee which are made of leather, the shins are covered with plate armour and the feet by sollerets. The inscription is "You who pass this way pray for the soul of Thomas de Cobham who died on the eve of St Thomas the Apostle. Almighty may you permit him to live in your company in the year of grace 1367. May the Holy Trinity be his defence against the abyss of Hell.". Thomas was a son of Henry the 1st Baron and brother of John the 2nd baron, Reginald the priest and Margaret. Thomas had 3 crescents on his hearldry instead of lions.
Cobham, St Mary Magdalene
Location: Cobham, Kent
History:
In the 13th Century the de Cobham family rebuilt an existing church, which can be seen in the Chancel dating from 1220.The earliest reference to a church on this site is from 1115 although it is thought that it was originally a Saxon church. In 1360-79 John de Cobham rebuilt the nave, raised the roof, and added the porch and parvis, and added the tower. John also built the college to the south of the church.

Church of St Mary Magdalen, Cobham, Kent
A large handsome church with wide north aisle, a lofty west tower and a large aisleless C13 chancel. This is a large church with a very large and broad chancel, explained by the fact this was a collegiate church. Most of the interest is in the chancel, including a very fine tomb to Sir George Brooke 9th Lord Cobham erected in 1561 in the centre of the chancel at the steps to the sanctuary; recumbant effigies, classical detaling to the tomb with recesses containing the kneeling children. In front lie two rows of brasses C14-C16. All of these memorials much repaired in the C19, especially the tomb. In the SE corner odd disruption in the wall with spiral stairs which is possibly explained outside as to the south lies the College buildings and there is thought to have been a bridge across to the chancel although the BoE suggest there may have been a loft over the altar. The church asks for GBP10 to photograph the brasses, I took one general view of them for free.

Freshwater, All Saints Church Photo, Adam de Compton brass, late 14th century

One of the most fascinating historical features is one about which we know very little. Set on the east wall of the north aisle is a beautifully preserved memorial brass of a knight, clad in armour that suggests a date in the reign of Richard II, that is, sometime in the last few decades of the 14th century.
We do not know who the knight may be, but one possibility is Adam de Compton.
