Sir John Pelham



c1356
 
In 1356 at the Battle of Poitiers a local knight Sir John Pelham together with Sir Roger de la Warr captured Jean the King of France, because of this the Sir John was given the Kings belt buckle as a badge of honour.

This badge can be seen in many churches in the area showing the influence and power of the Pelham family.
