of Leverton, co. Lincolm, for 1570, is the following entry, a pay-
ment " to tJiomas Turpyn the gold smythe for facyonenge of the
Comminiyon cupp iveynge xij ounces, xs — Itm he putt to the same

exists, and is in use. — An Elizabethan Chalice, No. 2, measures
6|in. in height. This cup has straight sides, and is without

surmounted by a cross. This piece has very much the appearance
of an ancient Ciborium, but is really of the same date as the
chalice, as it has the same mark, c. 1664. It is used for holding
the unconsecrated bread. — The plated Flagon, of ordinary tankard
shape, was given in 1869.

DEANERY OF DORCHESTER.



VII.

PURBECK PORTION.

Branksea.— The Church here is modern ; it was built in 1853,
and forms the centre of a new district. The service consists of a
Chalice, Paten, and Flagon of plated metal, inscribed with the
sacred monogram.

Chaldon Herring. — An Elizabethan Chalice, with Paten
cover, measuring 6^in. and ijin. in height, respectively. There
are no hall marks existing, they appear to have beaten out at
some period, but the date " 1573 " is inscribed on the cover. The
form is of the usual type ; the decoration consists of a rather plain
band of foliated strap-work.— A Paten, 5I diam., and a Flagon,
8|in. in height, are of modern design and late date.

Church Knole. — An Elizabethan Chalice, with Paten cover.
The cup is 6|in. in height, the shape is of the ordinary type of the
period, and is marked with /^^^ On the cover is in-

scribed " 1574," there is a "*?■ ^^^ * single band of inter-
laced floriated strap-work engraved round the bowl, with orna-
mental moulding on the rim of foot. — A Paten, gin. diam., bearing
the hall mark of 1 8 1 o. The Flagon is electro-plated.

CooMBE Keynes. — The Chalice here is of pre-Reformation date.
It is a beautiful example, quite perfect, and exceedingly well
preserved, as will be seen by the illustration. The dimensions
are — Height, 6| inches ; diameter of bowl, 4in. ; depth, 2in. ;
narrowest part of the mullet-shaped base, 3|in. ; widest part to the
points of the knops, 5 fin. The bowl is broad and conical ; the
somewhat slender stem is hexagonal and quite plain, with ogee-
moulded bands at the junctions. The knot is full-sized, having
six lobes spirally twisted with traceried openings, terminating in
angels' heads crowned. It has a mullet-shaped foot with plain



6i

broad spread and a vertically reeded moulding. The points
terminate with an elegant knop in the shape of a floriated
Lombardic CT3). In the front compartment of the base is the
usual crucifix between two flowering branches on a hatched ground.
The parts gilt are the interior and outer lip of the bowl, the knot,




CooMBE Keynes (nearly f full size).

the Crucifixion, also the mouldings of the stem, the base, and the
knops. No hall marks are found, but the date, compared with
other examples, is about 1500, perhaps earlier, certainly not much
later. The weight is just 10 oz. This is, no doubt, the same
chalice found by the Commissioners of Edward VI. at their
visitation in 1552, and left for the future use of the parish. It is



62

merely described in their inventory as " One chalice of silver."
There is a tradition in the parish of Coombe Keynes that this
chalice was discovered at some unknown period buried in the
chancel of the Church. — A Paten with foot, 7|in. diam. It bears
the date mark of 1726, the maker's mark W.D. under a trefoil
slipped, for William Darker. It is inscribed, " For the Church of
Coombe Keynes."

CoRFE Castle. — An Elizabethan Chalice with Paten cover.
Height 5|in., without cover. There is a hall mark on the paten,
the capital letter O, indicating the year 1591. The maker's mark
is indistinct, but is, apparently, the letters H L linked, a mark
found about this time. The only mark found on the chalice, near
the lip, is a small engrailed cross between two objects ; that on the
dexter side seems to be the letter C. On the cover is inscribed
the date 1591. This vessel varies somewhat from the usual
Elizabethan type, and indicates a change in the conventional form,
the stem spreads from the bowl without a knot, there is a single
band of the floriated and intersecting strap-work round the bowl,
and a border of the same round the base, besides vertical line
mouldings. On the cover is engraved a band of intermittent
lines. — Chalice No. 2, height gin., bearing the year mark of
1659, the maker's mark being a monogram of two capital M's.
The shape of the bowl is cylindrical, angular at the base, with a
plain spreading foot. On it is engraved a shield, with the Bankes'
arms, A cross engrailed between two fleurs de lys. Crest, A Moor's
head, supported on the helmet of an Esquire, with elaborate
mantling. — A Paten with foot, 6|in. diam., bearing the same hall
marks and the same arms. — A pair of Flagons, loin. in height,
having the year marks of 1649, but the maker's name is unde-
cipherable ; they also carry the shield and crest of the Bankes'
family. The Manor and Castle came into their possession in
1635, and is still held by them. The Castle is rendered famous
by the heroic defence made by its mistress. Lady Bankes, in the
absence of her husband, in 1643. The rebels battered the Castle
from the Church, which received damage thence ; for in 1646 the
committee paid ;Cs° to repair it. Lady Bankes died in 1661,
having survived her husband seventeen years. It is possible that
she might have given all this plate bearing the Bankes' arms ; if
not given by herself, then probably by her son. — An Alms-dish,
9^in. diam., with shaped edge, and bearing the sacred monogram.



63

Countess of Falmouth, daughter of Henry Bankes, Esq., M.P., of

the year mark of 1735. The maker's mark is illegible. It has a
plain bulb-shaped bowl, with thick plain stem, and is inscribed
with the sacred monogram. — A Paten with foot, gin. in diameter.
Underneath the rim is inscribed "Presented to the Parish of
Langton Matravers by John Bingley Garland 1856." — A massive

chalice. — A Salver, gin. diam., with a raised ornamental and
scalloped border ; it bears the hall mark of 1766. The maker's
