    On November 23 he returned to Portland Place, where the faithful Elizabeth joined a week later. By mid-December he was suffering acutely from a swollen knee. Three doctors were in almost constant attendance; they called in specialists, who diagnosed an abscess. It was opened on the 20th, and three days later Clinton died.

    LINCOLN CHAPEL.
    At the east end of the south aisle is the burial- place of the Earl of Lincoln, Lord High Admiral of England for thirty years during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, and an eminent statesman and councillor of Henry VIII. and Edward VI. He died January 16, 1584, and his Countess erected a monument to his remains, beneath which, on her subsequent decease, she was also interred. Their effigies are represented lying prostrate on the tomb upon a mat curiously wrought, the earl caparisoned in armour and his lady in her robes of state ; his feet-rest upon a greyhound, who has a small chain affixed to his collar, and a monkey is beneath those of the countess. On the sides of the monument, their eight children, five sous and three daughters, are sculptured in bas-relief, kneeling on cushions. The Duke of Newcastle, who, before his accession to that tide, was Earl of Lincoln, had the monument completely repaired in 1789; and, in 1795, Sir Henry Clinton, Bart, was buried beneath it.
