This panel shows Sir Edward Stradlinge (1529-1609) who transferred his ancestors' remains to the church of St Donat's, and commisioned these commemorative panels. He also erected a polychrome marble tomb for himself and his wife Agnes, daughter of Sir Edward Gage (Comptroller of the Household of Henry VIII). They are depicted together here also, and are shown in contemporary costume, carrying prayer books. His motto VERTUES HOLE PRAISE CONSISTETH IN DOING is inscribed at the top. Edward was educated at Oxford and was renowned as an antiqurian, genealogist and a Welsh scholar, who paid for the publication of Siôn Dafydd Rhys's grammar Cambrobrytannicae Linguae Institutiones in 1592.

I was the one who discovered these paintings were missing from the church if Charles Evans-Gunther would like any more details?
All best,

I seem to remember that the Stradling family paintings were stolen in the 1990s. Can anyone add any details to this?

I am doing some research into the Stradling family of St Donats. Would it be possible to get a print of the three depictions of the family members listed on your website?
