This is the only Tudor tomb in the Cathedral (I think), showing the family of Alderman Thomas Machin who died in 1614 and Christian his wife who survived him by only a year. They were survived by quite a large brood, but what intrigues me is how the young boys had to continue round the side of the monument. Never seen that before. Also unusual in there seems to be 2 batches of kids, again unusual. Maybe Mr Machin was away for some years or his wife ill.
