Many thanks for all your kind interest and comments on my last upload. It is very much appreciated. Today I have a selection of pictures of Bishop Storey's tomb. I'm undecided as to which I prefer so will be interested in your thoughts.
Bishop Edward Storey was educated at Pembrook Hall Cambridge where he was elected a Fellow circa 1444. Between 1450 and 1470 he held the appointment of Master of Michealhouse Cambridge. He was also Chancellor of Cambridge University. In 1468 he was appointed Bishop of Carlisle before being translated to Chichester in 1478 where he remained until his death in 1503.
During his time at Chichester he was responsible for starting The Prebendal School, from where the cathedral's choristors come. It was attached to the Prebend of Highliegh,hence its name, and was founded in 1497. The Prebendal School is the oldest school in Sussex. The oldest part of the school buildings dates back to the 13th century when it was the 'song school'.
Bishop Storey also established the Market Cross as a place for the local poor to sell their produce without having to pay the toll, providing they were under the cross.
I hope you enjoy.
All the best,
