15. TINWELL (Leicestershire). There is a renaissance monument on the south wall in the choir to Elizabeth Wingfield nee Cecil (d.1611 – see Stamford, above), sister of the great Lord Burghley, Queen Elizabeth’s Secretary of State, and her two husbands: Sir Robert Wingfield II of nearby Upton (d.1580) and Hugh Allington. In 1608 a paten was given here by John & Elizabeth Wingfield and in 1713 a paten and flagon were presented by Colonel Johnny Wingfield, author of “Some Records of the Wingfield family” [1925, reprinted 199- by the WFS]. There is also an 1841 memorial to John Wingfield.
