Church Seating Plan 1587/88

The seating plan was discovered recently and is in good condition for its age. This pdf file mainly concerns the arrangements for the Honeycombe family, but others are also mentioned. There are links from the file to 2 others concerning the history of both the family and Honeycombe House. (Published on this website by kind permission of Gordon Honeycombe.)
