Dryburgh Abbey

circa 1925: Dryburgh Abbey and its grounds. The abbey was founded around 1150 and the first abbot, recorded only as Roger, brought a group of Praemonstratensian Monks from Alnwick and established their home at Dryburgh. The monks lived there until 1322 when Edward I's retreating troops burnt the abbey to the ground. After the rebuilding programme it was destroyed again in 1544 during Henry VIII's Rough Wooing'. Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) was buried in St Mary's Aisle in the ruins of Dryburgh Abbey and Field Marshal Haig's tomb is also there. (Photo by Alfred Hind Robinson/A H Robinson/Getty Images)

Tomb of the Howard family at Arundel Church, Sussex Featured Henry VIII (1491-1547) Image

Tomb of the Howard family at Arundel Church, Sussex

The tomb of the Howard family of Arundel, Sesssex, in the parish church of St Nicholas. This church is interesting because it is physically divided between Roman Catholic and Church of England, the Fitzalan Howard family (the family of the Duke of Norfolk) being the foremost Catholic family in England. At the Dissolution, Henry VIII, being Supreme Head of the Church of England, sold the Collegiate Chapel of the College of priests and all its property to Henry Fitzalan, the 12th Earl of Arundel. At that point, the church was divided into two. Entry to the private Fitzalan Chapel (the Catholic section) is only possible via Arundel Castle. Illustration from "Picturesque Europe - The British Isles" published by Cassell Petter & Galpin in 1875 (price 2/6d)

"Engraving of Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556)Engraved in 1829 by William Holl the younger (1771-1838) from the original picture in the collection at Lambeth Palace.Edited and published by William Mackenzie,London,Edinburgh & Glasgow in 1850.Digital restoration by PictoreThomas Cranmer was a leader of the English Reformation and Archbishop of Canterbury during the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI and, for a short time, Mary I. He helped build the case for the annulment of Henry's marriage to Catherine of Aragon, which was one of the causes of the separation of the English Church from union with the Holy See. Along with Thomas Cromwell, he supported the principle of Royal Supremacy, in which the king was considered sovereign over the Church within his realm.The portrait and figure engraver William Holl the Younger was born in February 1807 at Plaistow, Essex. He was the eldest of the four sons of William Holl the Elder (1771-1838) who taught him engraving, in stipple at first, but later in line on steel. His first independent work was an engraving of Thomas Cranmer made in May 1829"
