Countess Rohese de Beauchamp Dear Helen, I am sorry to say that at the moment we have not been about to determine the exact location of the Chapter House at Chicksands Priory nor the grave of Rohese.
If you would like to make contact with me I can certainly give you more details as to the situation.
Being a descendant of Payne and Rohese this is one of the problems that I have been trying to resolve over the years. It is on record that her remains were moved into the Chapter House 100 years after her death, and parts of the Purbeck marble effigy were found at Chicksands at the beginning of the last century.
During John Leyland's travels around England he recorded that her monument was in the Priory Chapter house, shortly before the Dissolution of the Monasteries. Chicksands was dissolved on 22 Oct. 1538.
We open the Priory to the public, by appointment, on 1st & 3rd Sundays of the month, April-Oct.
With best wishes,
Roger W. Ward Chairman & Historian, Friends of Chicksands Priory (see our website: chicksandspriory.co.uk)

I have been to St Mary's this afternoon to have a look for a record of Maud for you in the Beauchamp chapel but unfortunately there is nothing there. I also purchased a small booklet on the chapel that they have and have checked through there, but again no record I'm afraid. I did take a picture of Thomas Beauchamp if you would like me to post that if you haven't got it already?
You are most welcome. I'm going down to Worcester this week and will take some photos of the crypt. If you do find out where he was originally buried, just let me know and I'll take the photograph for you.
East Winch Church Yes, sorry that the picture is not better but The Howard Chapel is where the organ is kept so you can't move much in there really! I do have another piece of the photo which gives year of burial. If you want it remind me who you were interested in in The Howard Chapel
