The church of Biddenden in Kent has a large number of brasses. These are mostly of local wealthy families many of whom made their fortunes through both farming and clothmaking. This area of Kent was a centre of woollen cloth manufacture at the time with wool from sheep on the downs and on Romney Marsh. The trade declined in the early seventeenth century.
