Sir John Paulet died testate and was buried in Nunney Church where there is an effigy of him and his wife Constance.  He is shown wearing the Collar of SS (or Esses) which shows his allegiance to the King.  Constance remarried after the death of John to Henry Greene of Drayton Northamptonshire.  They had one daughter Anne.
On the window sill is another effigy alleged to be that of Sir John de la Mere the great grandfather of Sir John Paulet, although it may be that of John Paulet's grandfather Philip de la Mere.  Sir John de la Mere built Nunney Castle in around 1360/70.
