Montagu Monuments, St Edmund's Church, Warkton, Northants

The Montagu Monuments are four stunning marble statues in the unlikely setting of Grade I listed St Edmunds Church in Warkton, Northamptonshire. The Statuary assemblages commemorates four members of the same family (the Montagus from nearby Boughton House). Two were created by Louis Francois Roubiliac, however the pictured statues (for Lady Mary Montagu, Duchess of Montagu (1712 1775)) are by Peter Mathias Van Gelder (circa 1742 - 1809) erected in Warkton in 1781. The monument shows the distress witnessed by the representative figures of the Distressed Woman, Widows and Orphans, who were championed and supported by Mary throughout her life in many charitable acts, which are summarised in the tribute, by Henry Lyte, on the column, which includes: No wonder then, if oer thy Urn - Poor Orphan Babes & Widows mourn, - Heavn gains a holy Saint tis true, But They have lost their MONTAGU. The Angel attempts to ease the grief by pointing skywards, indicating the place in heaven to where the Duchess had gone. Date: 1928
