|Death: ||Aug. 17, 1519|
Son of Sir Knight Thomas Dymoke (who was beheaded when Lionel was a child) and wife Margaret WELLES Dymoke. Married Joan GRIFFITH. Sheriff of Lincolnshire 1516.
At St. Mary's at the very end of the Aisle is the brass to Sir Lionel Dymoke who died in 1519. He is clad in armour and kneels on a cushion. A prayer scroll issues from him to a lost ‘Trinity' plate. The shields bear the crescent sign indicating his status as a second son. At the base of the slab are plates showing his three daughters in their ‘kennel' headdresses and his two stepsons with their purses. Sir Lionel was knighted at the Siege of Tournai by King Henry VIII. Very unusually, Sir Lionel is commemorated by two brasses for on the floor nearby he is depicted on a ‘shroud' brass, but this is excessively worn and it is difficult to picture its originasl appearance. It is possible to lift the nearby carpet to view this brass.
