The effigy in the chancel is of Sir Dafydd ap Gruffydd – the leaflet describes him as "a local medieval knight"!

Dafydd ap GRUFFUDD FYCHAN was of Rhiwhiriaeth, which lies a mile or so, south west of Mary's Church in Caereinion. The manor included the important mill at Melin y Ddol.
The names of the farms in the area such as Glynhiriaeth, Rhiwhiriaeth Isaf and Rhiwhiriaeth Ganol are derived from the name of the manor. There is an impressive effigy of Dafydd ap GRUFFUDD FYCHAN within Llanfair Caereinion Church.
Owen (1930) argues that Dafydd ap GRUFFUDD FYCHAN was a contemporary of the "peerless Welsh patriot and rebel" Owen de Galles (Owain Lawgoch), and in all probability, was one of Owens companions in arms. Owen de Galles had local connections, as he owned the manor of Plas in Dinas in Mechain. Colin Gresham (1968) in his research on medieval stone carvings in North Wales was dubious whether Dafydd ap GRUFFUDD FYCHAN fought in Owain Glyndwr's rebellion of 1400-1410, however, he paints the picture of him being an "important landowner in Upper Powys, living little more than a dozen miles from Sycharth, and of distinguished, even princely, lineage...as a man Dafydd ap GRUFFUDD FYCHAN can be compared closely with Owain (Lawgoch) in the days before 1400, and his effigy supplies a portrait contemporary with the great Welsh hero".

Edwin ap Gronwy and Other Effigies:
There are several internal tomb recesses set into the interior of the north wall.
Edwin ap Gronwy, Lord of Tegaingl, sometimes Edwyn ap Gronw of Tegengl. His Mother was Ethelfleda the daughter of Edwin Earl of Mercia who was a descendant of Alfred the Great. Edwin Married Ewerydd the Sister of Bleddyn Prince of Powis and had three Sons Owain, Uchdryd & Hywel. Edwin was killed in 1073 and buried at Northop.
(P0419, 1370?) Another tomb recess contains the effigy of a knight in complete armour, possibly Ithel Vychan ap Bleddyn a knight of the 14th century, with the hands crossed upon the breast, and a lion at the feet, the shield bearing a cross with five mullets.

The Church of Ss Eurgain and Peter is situated in the village of Northop (otherwise known as Llaneurgain) Flintshire in North East Wales. This page concerns the decorations, monuments, effigies and stone carvings within and outside the church.

Archeologia Cambrensis
Vol. 14
by Cambrian Archeological Association
1892
Pennant, in his Tours in Wales, describes three (effigies), and the fourth was discovered in digging a grave in the chancel in 1798.
The last-mentioned monument is somewhat mutilated, the face having disappeared, the upper parts of the arms, hands, and the legs below the knees are broken away.
The head rests on a tiltinghelm, which has a long mantling with a tassel, and is surmounted by an heraldic crest, the head and shovlders of a man issuing
out of a coronet. This does not appear in the illustration but is very perfect on the effigy.
