Church of St Mary the Virgin, Parson's Lane, Ewelme, OX10 6HS Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
The present building has not changed greatly for almost 600 years, having been reordered in 1437. The building is said to have been modelled on Wingfield Church in Suffolk, another Manor of William de la Pole; who is buried in that Church. The church contains the tomb of Alice Chaucer,who was the grand-daughter of Geoffrey Chaucer and she married a Duke of Suffolk. This tomb is alabaster, with nun's robe, coronet and an Order of the Garter on her left arm.
The monument to Thomas Chaucer, son of the poet Geoffrey Chaucer, and Matilda Burghersh, his wife, is an alter-tomb of grey Purbeck marble with full length brass effigies of the couple.
