Elizabeth Goddard, c.1591

Originally housed in the Steeple Ashton Church, removed in 1851 to Rousham, Oxfordshire.

Interesting hood configuration. This one gives me a bit of a theory. First layer of black coif, second layer of billement with flap attached at very top. It's this flap that is folded back on the top of the head.
