The brasses and inscriptions that can be found in St Laurence, Wormley include:

The brass of Angelette Tooke and Walter Tooke, her husband, their 8 sons and 4 daughters.

The stone and brasses originally formed the top of an altar tomb, but now are on the floor of the chancel. Angelette Tooke was daughter and co-heir of William Woodliffe citizen and mercer of London, to whom the manor and advowson of the church passed in 1541. Her nephew, William Purvey, is buried in the large Renaissance tomb against the south wall of the chancel. The date is about 1590.



In the chancel is a brass to Edmond Howton of Wormley, and Annes his wife, and 5 sons. There are probably some daughters missing. There is part of a marginal inscription showing the date 1479. Another brass in the chancel is to John Cok, yeoman, his wife and 10 sons and daughters. Between the two figures is a strip of brass with trees and a dog eschewing a hare. 



Richard Ruston, Rector who died in 1457


The gravestone of John Cleve, Rector of Wormley, is in the east end of the chancel. Written in Latin it reads: Here lies Johes Cleve once rector of the church of Wormele who died 22nd October AD 1404 whose soul may God accept.
