Joyce Curzon ( Mrs Lewes ) : Lichfield Marian Martyr
« on: Tuesday 18 June 19 11:31 BST (UK) »
Must go to Lichfield soon to visit Erasmus Darwin House and also to find out more about my cousin Joyce Lewes ( nee Curzon ) who was burnt at the stake in Lichfield Mkt Place in Dec 1557 as a Protestant Martyr in the bad days of Bloody Queen Mary. ( there's a memorial to her in Mancetter Church , Atherstone ).

Is there a marker or plaque in the market place to Joyce or the martyrs in general ?  I found somewhere forgotten in the internet  a very blurry photo of a painting of Joyce at the stake in a white dress with Lichfield Cathedral behind.  Does anybody know where this painting is ? I'd like to take a better photo of it.

Thanks Lots , Miss Hepburn ,

I knew the Revolvy stuff and have read Foxe's on cousin Joyce but the pic of the Mkt Place plaque is great , must look out for that when I visit Lichfield ( last time was 1977 ! )
