Harrison's description (1911):

ST. GEORGE. Restored in 1868. This fine E.E. church has been altered in many details to Perp. Tower, Perp. The S. aisle of chancel is the Oxenbridge chantry and contains the fine monument of Sir Goddard Oxenbridge (1537) with his figure as a knight in armour and head resting on his helmet and his feet on a lion. His arms are on the tomb, of Caen stone, worked probably by Frenchmen, which would account for the flamboyant character of the tracery. The E. window of this chantry has some stained glass with arms of Echyngham. Note: brasses to Robt. Oxenbridge (1487) and his wife (1492), and to his daughters; some old glass in the window over S. door; old poor box (1697). Dean Swift's cradle is among the curiousities of this church. Font. Perp. Reg. 1559.
