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.

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?
Thanks.
