St Mary the Virgin - Ripple
The present church of St. Mary the Virgin, Ripple, occupies a site where a church building has stood since Norman times, possibly a Saxon site before that. There is a list of Rectors here which claims John de Staneyweye as being Rector of this church in 1294.The present church is relatively new, being built in 1861, albeit on the site of the old Norman church. The design is a Victorian simplified copy of the classic Norman church at Barfreston. Unusually for a Victorian church, the tower is capped with a broach, now covered in tenured stainless steel, replacing the original zinc cladding, which was blown to the four winds in the Great Storm of 1987.
The church contains some interesting memorials and tablets, some from the old church, including several to the French family, whose most famous son, Field Marshal John Denton Pinkstone French, 1st Earl of Ypres KP GCB OM GCVO KCMG ADC PC, the first Commander - in - Chief of the British Expeditionary Force in World War 1 lies buried at this church. The Sanctuary Lamp which was at one time kept permanently lit, is in memorial to him.
