chantry

chantry. Establishment, endowment, or foundation for the daily or frequent saying of Masses on behalf of the souls of the founder, founders, or other persons intended. A chantry-chapel was therefore a chapel or separate part of a church established for this purpose, often enclosed by a screen (with or without a canopy), and frequently erected over the burial-place of the founder, so not unusually incorporated, apart from the altar, a tomb-chest and effigy, as in the excellent medieval examples in Winchester Cathedral.
