Not illustrated. 1806 Excerpt: ...Esq. was deposited, and which is placed on a Mausoleum at West Wykeham, the seat of Lord le Despencer. Paul Whitehead, Esq. of Twickenham, Obiit December 30, 1774. Unhallow'd hands, this urn forbear: No gems, nor orient spoil Lie here conceal'd--but, what's more rare, A heart that knows no guile. STEPNEY. ON MARY ANGEL, Widow, who died 29th November, 1693, aged 72. To say an angel here interr'd doth lye, May be thought strange, for angels never dye; Indeed some fell from heav'n to hell, Are lost and rise no more; This only fell from death to earth, Not lost, but gone before; Her dust lodg'd here, her soul perfect in grace, Amongst saints and angels now hath took its place. STEPNEY. Captain Johnchevers died November 18, 1675. Ann Cheveus, his wife, died November 14, 1675. John Chevers, their son, died November 13, 1675. Aged 5 days.

Interr'd the corps of Baron Birch lies here, Of Gray's Inne, sometime by degree esquire; In 'chequer eighteen year a judge he was,-Till soule from aged.body his did passe, Alive his wife Eliza doth remaine, Of Stydfolke stocke; one sonnc, and daughters twaine,.. She bore by him: the eldest in his life He gave to Thomas Boyer, for his wife; His body sleeps till angels' trump shall sound: God grant we all may ready then be found. Joannes Birch, ob. A.
