c1380 knight of the Quintin family of Bupton Formerly in the south aisle on a marble gravestone. (Aubrey visit) but could be Henry de Cobham
Nigel Saul has made a good case, although not an absolutely conclusive one, for this brass being that of Sir Henry de Cobham. Sir Henry appears to have lived at least part of the time in Clyffe Pypard. He died sometime between 1362 and 1367, which is perhaps a little early for this exact style of brass. Saul also notes that the Quintins were of little or no consequence locally until the sixteenth century and were probably not armigerous in the Middle Ages.
See Nigel Saul 'Death, Art and Memory in Medieval England: The Cobham Family and their Monuments 1300-1500', pages 206-210.

Since both shields and the inscription are missing, there is no way to establish with certainty the identity of the effigy. Edward Kite, however, attributes it to a member of the Quintin family, who were lords of Bupton Manor in the parish of Pypard. Since the south aisle in which the brass is situated seems to have once contained a chapel belonging to the Bupton estate, Kite argues that the brass may therefore be of a Quintin.
Recently, however, that attribution has been questioned by Nigel Saul, who argues not only that the location of the brass is no proof of its original location in the church, but that in the fourteenth century there were no Quintins who were armigerous, yet this brass once had several shields. Saul's search for a lord of a manor at Clyffe Pypard who was armigerous and who died in the 1370s brought him to the well-known Cobham family of Kent. He discovered not only that they held the main manor at Clyffe Pypard but that they practiced the inheritance principle of gavelkind by which land was divided between legitimate male heirs. As a result, the Cobhams produced several junior branches, and it was to one of these that the Clyffe-Pypard Manor passed early in the fourteenth century. In 1306, Sir Henry de Cobham granted the manor to one of his sons, Thomas, who in turn had three sons—Sir Thomas, Reginald, and Sir Henry. Sir Thomas eventually succeeded his father as lord of Beluncle Manor in Hoo St. Werburgh, Kent, and Reginald became a parson at Cooling, Kent. But Sir Henry was alive and living at Clyffe Pypard in 1362. Though there was no inquisition post-mortem to establish the date of his death, Saul argues that Sir Henry's association with Clyffe Pypard suggests that he, rather than a member of the Quintin family, may be the knight commemorated here.

Henry de Cobham 1380, cousin of John de Cobham, Henry was lord of the Manor of Clyffe Pypard in 1355.

Henry, Lord Cobham died in 1339 and was followed by a son (d. 1355), and grandson (d. 1408), both called John
