This is the Stanley Boy effigy in Elford Church,Staffordshire,England.It is supposed to depict John Stanley, the last male heir of the line.The story is he was hit on the temple by a tennis ball and killed in about 1460.It has an inscription reading ‘Ubi dolor,ibi digitus’ (The finger points to the pain).Fascinating story.But probably not true.Experts have come to the conclusion it’s a post medieval replacement of an earlier heart burial effigy.Originally the figure may have been holding a representation of a heart.So was this boy killed by being struck by a ball during a game of real tennis?That answer may be buried in the past.
