1408 Sir William (Miles) Tendring Lord of the Manor of Tendring Hall from 1375. The son of William Tendring and Margaret daughter of William Kerdiston of Claxton. He married Katherine d1402 daughter of William Mylde of Clare, widow of Sir Thomas Clopton of Kentwell Hall, Long Melford. Their only child Alice Tendring married in 1398 Sir John Howard. Their first grandson becoming the first Howard Duke of Norfolk. He is in mixed mail and plate armour, the face believed to be his portrait.



It must be remembered that brass effigies reflect the individual symbolically, and not necessarily realistically, especially the faces. It is therefore interesting to note the detail the artist has given to Sir William's face, and his beard, which would be the correct style for his time. It is believed that the artist may have been working from a portrait.
Sir William de Tendring's brass effigy is five feet by eleven inches long and is in excellent condition. The inscription is missing, however, it is on record as Hic jacent tumulati D'ns Will'us Tendring miles et D'na Cathering Clopton uxor eius qui obieront Anno D'ni 1408 quor' a'i'abus p'pitiet'r Deus Amen. His armor is an excellent example of the Mixed Mail and Plate Period. Special note should be made of the chain mail closely fitted about his neck. From Knights on Suffolk Brasses, T. M.
