St James Church Shere
The commerative Brass to {Z38} John Touchet; Lord Audley
The History of St James Church Shere states: ‘A second brass in the chancel floor commemorates Lord Audley, who died in 1490 (some documents state that he died in 1491). Granted the Manor of Shere in 1466, he became Lord Treasurer in 1484, and three years later, he passed the manor to Sir Reginald Bray, a prominent court figure.
 The individuals name in the boarder around the brass
County Churches – Surrey by J. E. Morris B.A. published in 1910 indicates that the brass originally formed part of a table-tomb that originally stood in the chapel and was ‘wickedly stolen’ with only a small section of the border remaining. It would appear the brass was reinstated dueing the 1911 refurbishments of the church.
