    The Dacre Tomb in Herstmonceux Church, Sussex, was built between 1450 and 1540 and currently contains the effigies of Sir Thomas Hoo, K.G. (d. 1455) and his half-brother Sir Thomas (d. 1486). The brothers were probably originally buried in Battle Abbey (they were great benefactors of that abbey), and then moved to Herstmonceux when Battle Abbey was demolished as part of Henry VIII's reforms. The effigies were later altered to represent Dacre and Fiennes.
