• In Marnhull church the alabaster effigies on an altar-tomb depicting a knight in armour with a woman on either side, have been near certainly identified as John Carent (senior), who died in 1478, with his two wives. The somewhat mutilated state of the work is thought to have been caused by the theft of alabaster to make dies for coins.
