Little Baddow - Mildmay Monument
The chancel of St Mary's church contains an elaborate monument to Sir Henry Mildmay (d.1639) and his two wives. He lies clad in his armour (he distinguished himself in battle in Ireland against the Spanish) and at his feet are his two wives in kneeling position - Alicia Harris on the left and Amy Gurdon (who survived him) on the right. Alicia Harris committed suicide on account of her husband‟s unkindness; hence the skull in her hand. In the nave there is a 1375 painting of St Christopher, and interestly, a recently uncovered 12th century drawing of the devil on the north wall.
