The funeral trophies - standards and armour - of a member of the Ingelby family at All Saints' Church, Ripley in Yorkshire. Nearby Ripley Castle was the seat of the Ingelbys - lords of the manor and the principal landowners in the parish. All Saints' Church was founded by Sir Thomas Ingelby, who was Justice of the Common Pleas in the reign of Edward III. He moved to Ripley to marry local heiress Edeline Thweng. He found favour with the King after rescuing him from an enraged wild boar whilst hunting. Rewarded with a knighthood and other privileges his coat of arms included, appropriately, a boar's head. This is part of a larger tomb monument to Sir Thomas and his wife in All Saints' Church.
