Research Notes (Husband)

The most interesting monument in St. Michael's Church, Macclesfield, is the one on the south side of the chancel. It is a splendid altar tomb or alabaster, on which are the recumbent figures of a "Knight and his Ladye." The knight's feet rest on a dog. In the lady's headdress, which is extremely rich, the letters I. H. S. are frequently repeated. The knight's represents Sir John Savage, and the lady's Katharine, his wife, daughter of Sir Thomas, first Lord Stanley, of Knowsley, parents of Archbishop Savage, who founded the adjoining chapel. This Sir John Savage served the office of Mayor of Chester, and died 11, Henry VII., aged 73 years.
