Memorial to the 1st Earl of Coventry who received his title from William III. The earl's widow, who was his second wife, went on to marry Mr. Thomas Savage of Elmley Castle and had the monument made for her late husband. The 1st Earl is buried at Croome d'Abitoit but the 2nd Earl disputed his step-mother's ancestry and would not allow the monument to be placed at Croome d'Abitoit.
