Sir Elidyr de Stackpole
Stackpole Church, is dedicated to St James and St Elidyr, and goes back probably to the 12th century. It is situated in the village of Stackpole Elidor, otherwise known as Cheriton.
In the chancel there are two striking effigies on tomb chests, traditionally identified with the founder of the Church, Sir Elidor de Stackpole and his wife, the Lady Elspeth
In the north wall of the chancel, beneath a handsome, canopied recess of somewhat unusual cha[Pg 65]racter, lies the effigy of its reputed founder, Sir Elidur deStackpole.
The figure has a grave and dignified appearance; it is clad in a suit of chain-and-plate mail, and has sword, shield and large spurs. The worthy knight is represented with crossed legs, as having fought in the wars of the Crusades; at the time, no doubt, when Baldwyn and Gerald of Manorbere were inciting the people to that famous enterprise.
The base of this monument is divided into six panels, in each of which is a figure beneath a cusped and crocketed arch. These quaint little effigies show a curious variety of costume and expression, and are worth close examination. Upon the opposite, or southern, side of the chancel is the figure of a lady, apparently of Edwardian date. The head is covered with a square hood, and is supported by two kneeling angels. This effigy is very well executed, and in an unusually good state of preservation.
The church at Cheriton has 14th century effigies of Richard de Stackpole and his wife
Elidor Stackpole, gave his name as patron to the local church in Cheriton where a descendant, Sir Richard, a crusader, has an effigy
Margaret de Turberville, the second daughter, married Sir Richard Stackpole, whose daughter Joan Stackpole married Sir Richard Verney.
under a wrought canory of stone, lies a cross-legged knight, his right hand on h-s sword and his left bearing his shield, evidently once painted over with his arms; and there can be no doubt of his representing Elidur de Stackpool. The sides of the tomb are in compartments, each compartment containing a figure, but so disfigured by white-wash with which the champion of the cross, as well as every other part of the monument, has been so plastered and replastered, that nothing of their character or design can be made out.
