Royston, Hertfordshire

There is an entry in History and Antiquities of Hertford by Robert Clutterbuck published in 1827 which mentions a Glenister memorial in the parish church at Royston, Cambridgeshire. The memorial was said to be located at the west end of the south aisle and was described as:

Arms: per fess indented (dancette), in chief a lion passant..., impaling, ..., a chevron between three escallops ... Crest: on a wreath, a lion passant.

The ... in the original indicate the omission of the tincture (colour) of the arms.

When I visited the church in 1980, the memorial was not in the location described, nor anywhere to be found in the church or church yard. Enquiries to the vicar of the church also drew a blank.
