Great Barrington is just west of Burford, Oxfordshire, where we shot module 6, 'The Speckled Monster'. Local historian, Joan Moody, knowing our interest in smallpox, told us about the effigy to the Bray family, so we went to have a look.
It's an extraordinary memorial. The angel above is carved by Christopher Cass. And below, one family member after another, killed by smallpox. Not all were infant casualties. Major Edmund Bray survived the siege of Mastrick, and Lt Colonel William Bray served in Flanders; both succumbed to smallpox.
