Thomas Burwell Memorial, Edvin Ralph

Recent Photograph of Thomas Burwell Memorial (Edvin Ralph)

This is one of several memorials to the BURWELL family, on the walls at the base of the bell tower. The Inscription, so far as I can decipher, reads:

Beneath this Place
lie interred the Bodies / of
Thomas BURWALL late of Butterley
Anne his Wife
and Edward their Son.
Anne died August ye 18th [1699]
Thomas died Novembr. ye 6th 1699
Edward November the 9th [1699]
Near this also lie the Bodies of
Thomas Son of ye sd. Thomas BURWALL
and of Mary and Jane his Daughters
by Mary his Wife.
Mary died Novembr. ye 15th A.D. 1714
Thomas January ye 13th A.D. 1727
and Jane July ye 27th A.D. 1732

According to the guide book, the tablet contains more inscriptions, ending with the last, Peggy BURWELL who died in 1835 aged 70; however as you can see the bottom, more recent part of the memorial is eroded, and unfortunately I was unable to read more than the above from my photo.

Directly above the tablet is a memorial to the Revd. David EVANS, which reads:

Near this place are interr'd
the remains of
the Revd. David EVANS.
Fifty Four Years Curate
of this Parish.
He departed this life
the 3rd. day of July 1834
aged 79.
