While in Norfolk during the summer we visited Felbrigg Hall and nearby Felbrigg church. Both hall and church are worth a detour if you are in the area. The church is loaded with history and one of the best collections of brasses I’ve seen. Many are memorials to the Felbriggs who originally owned the estate and built the church.
The Wyndham family, later spelled Windham, gained possession of Felbrigg Hall in the fifteenth century and as well as the brasses the church has a much later monument to catch the eye. A large marble bust by Joseph Nollekens of William Windham, Secretary of State for War under Pitt the elder.
As you see from the picture, beautiful fourteenth century sedilia were hacked away to make room for it.
Perhaps Windham’s distinctly superior air was a subtle jibe by Nollekens. Or maybe that's how his surviving family wished him to be remembered.
