Ewelme, Oxfordshire

St Mary's church is connected with the family of Geoffrey Chaucer, whose son, Thomas, and Thomas's wife Matilda are buried here. Their daughter Alice married the Earl of Salisbury and then the Duke of Suffolk and her tomb here is a masterpiece of the time. This is one of only two monuments showing a woman wearing the Order of the Garter.

Jerome K. Jerome, author of Three Men in a Boat, in which the three get hopelessly lost in the Hampton Court maze, is buried in the churchyard.
