Richard and Elizabeth Wakehurst – Brass Rubbing

While I was away in Melbourne I was watching an ebay auction for a brass rubbing of Richard & Elizabeth Wakehurst. It was located in Tasmania and was “pick up” only. Me being me,😆 emailed the seller to see if he would consider removing it from it’s frame and posting it to me if I won, a shame as it was framed and is 5 feet high by 2 feet wide, but the only way for me to get it… murphys law I won it!

Fingers crossed he removes it carefully, and it won’t cost too much to have it reframed, but I suspect It will be costly. Can’t wait to see it!

The original Brass is located in St Peters Church in Ardingly, Sussex.

Richard Wakehurst Esquire was born 1385 in Wakehurst, Sussex, England. He died 8  Jan 1457 in Wakehurst. Richard married Elizabeth de Echyngham in 1409. Elizabeth was born 1390 in Etchingham, Sussex, England. She died 3  Jul 1464 in Wakehurst.

    I have one charcoal rubbing and I’m desperate to purchase a large brass rubbing similar to yours. Do you have any idea how I can find one? I greatly appreciate any help!

    The one you purchased is beautiful.
