Inside St John the Baptist's Church, Strensham

Recent Photograph of Inside St John the Baptist's Church (Strensham)

The hatchments are of the Taylor family - on the left, Taylor of Strensham - Argent sprinkled with drops sable and a chief indented sable with a pale argent therein and three scallops counter coloured - and on the right, the Taylor motto “Fidelisque ad Mortem”. In the center is a Royal Coat of Arms - “Dieu et Mon Droit”, but it is hidden on this photograph by the head of an angel attached to the cross-beam.

The Taylor family became Lords of the Manor in 1817, when it was bought by a Mr John Taylor, eldest son of Mr. John Taylor, a Birmingham button manufacturer.
