Under an arch in the Hundon chapel, lies the effigy of Sir John de Hundon, who died about 1350.

His monument used to be boxed in by boarding, which perhaps saved it from suffering greater damage although the hands are broken, the dagger sheath has gone and the angels supporting the cushion on which his head rests are headless

Also effigy of Sir John de Hundon, c.138o, with moustache

Further east still is the magnificent though damaged effigy to Sir John de Hundon, High Sheriff of Lincolnshire, died late in the C14

wears plate armour, with a mailed gorget and basinet helm, all straps to helm, cingulum and spurs are decorated with roses. His feet on a lion, his head supported by headless angels

within the Hundon chapel is a third monument (temp. Edward III. or Richard II.), said to be that of Sir John de Hundon; this consists of a richly-carved sepulchral recess, inclosing a knightly effigy of stone, in plate armour, with mutilated figures of angels at the head
