This finely engraved brass shows Margaret, the first wife of Thomas Peyton, wearing a decollete waisted gown of rich Italian brocade can be found at Isleham, Cambridgeshire, England.  Her butterfly head dress, fashionable at that time is worded with the prayer - "Lady (Help) Jhu (Jesu) Mercy".  Her elaborate necklace is also worn in the similar brass of second wife Margaret Francis Peyton and is thought to be a family heirloom.  However an identical necklace worn by Isabel Cheyne (Norfolk, England, 1495) and the position of the hands in all three ladies suggests these brasses have all been created by the same workshop.
