Thomas Smythe

There are three memorials to the Smythe family in St Mary's church, Ashford. This is of Thomas Smythe (1522-1591) who was the son of a Yeoman and Clothier. He was later Queen Elizabeth's customs officer and Lord of the Manor of Ashford. The Queen then presented him with the manor of Westenhanger, Kent.

I am not confident with black and white images, but felt this memorial might just work.

I think you have nailed the b&w there. This works very well and the textures really show

@suesouthwood thank you. The memorial was a warm gold colour so I wasn't sure if I liked the monochrome.
