Excerpt from Monumental Brasses of Warwickshire: Accurately Transcribed, With Translations and Descriptive Notes
To the archaeologist the use of the study of brasses is manifold. They accurately represent the vesture of the ecclesiastic, the armour of the knight, and the less extra vagant fashions of civil costume. They supply the herald with armorial bearings; and in the mouldings and tracery of their canopies afford valuable data for the history of Architecture. The inscriptions acquaint the genealogist with facts of family history, and the palaeographer with the forms of letters in use at different periods; While all may learn from them something of the thoughts and aspirations that have swayed the generations of the past.
