Revd George Martin, Overbury (d.1796)

Recent Photograph of Revd George Martin (d.1796) (Overbury)

The Inscription reads:

Sacred / To the Memory
of the
Revd. George MARTIN, A.M.
Son of
Joseph MARTIN Esqre. M.P.
Banker in London
and of Eleanor his Wife
who departed this Life
August 22d.
1796
Ann Aetat 32
He was one of the best of Men

It seems likely the memorial should read ‘M.A.’, rather than ‘A.M.’ George MARTIN is recorded in Alumni Oxoniensis as the son of Joseph, of Leatherhead, Surrey, arm., entering Christ Church College, to matriculate in 1781 aged 16, obtaining a B.A. in 1785, and M.A. in 1788. He was vicar of Broad Hinton, Dorset in 1792, and of Overbury and Cowley in Worcester, until his death at Ham Court on 22 August 1796.
