Anthony Daston of Dumbleton was the High Sheriff of Gloucestershire. He married Ann Sheldon of Broadway Court and their combined properties made them the largest landowners in Broadway. Broadway Court was demolished in 1773, but the Daston crest - a reindeer's head pierced through the neck by an arrow - is still visible over the gatehouse door. Anthony Daston died in 1572 and was buried in St Eadburgha's Church at Broadway. The Latin transcript on the brass says:

Here lies buried the body of Anthony Daston: he loved the world but now scorns its joys.
If ever there was a wise and faithful friend, that friend was Daston, who lies shut within the tomb you see.
A worthy squire, sprung of an ancient line, he withstood the fray yet was a zealous lover of peace.
Of his riches he gave aid, while he lived, to men in need; of goodwill to all, he was gentle and kindly.
Six and sixty years - no long span - he lived; his spirit in Christ now tastes the joys of Heaven
He died July 19th A.D. 1572

St. Eadburgha was the daughter of King Edward the Elder whose father was King Alfred the Great.

The church has been a place of worship since Saxon times. The story goes that as a child, Eadburgha was offered jewels or a Bible as a gift. She chose the latter (silly girl) and dedicated her life to the service of God.

The present cruciform church dates back to the 12th century and contains some fine medieval stonework and Jacobean woodwork.
