Sir John Russell, Strensham (d.1405)

Recent Photograph of Sir John Russell (d.1405) (Strensham)

One of two fine brasses in the chancel floor, in very similar styles, of the knight in armour - the other is for Sir Robert Russell, d.1390.

These two are the earliest of a collection of monuments to the Russell family which (the guide book points out) “represent a remarkable example of the changes in style and fashion over the four centuries, each reflecting accurately, if unconsciously, the sentiments of their time”.
