- Cornelius Cure
Cure lived and worked in Southwark in Surrey (now London). He held the office of Master Mason to both Queen Elizabeth I and King James I, originally jointly with his father. He was a popular sculptor of church monuments, such as those to Sirs Philip and Thomas Hoby, Thomas' widow, Elizabeth, Lady Russell, at Bisham in Berkshire, and Sir William Cordell at Long Melford in Suffolk. He is, however, best known for his production of the great monument to Mary, Queen of Scots, in Westminster Abbey, which remained incomplete at his death, but was finished by his son, William Cure II, upon his succession as Royal Master Mason.
