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.

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.
