Under an Arch on the North Side of the Chancell lyes the Effigies of 
John Botright S.T.P. the first Minister of this Church after it was built. 
In the Library is a little black book of his own hand writing which 
Contains a Terrier of all the lands belonging to this Church as also the 
names of Benefactors, an Inventary of its plate, Ornaments, Books, 
Vestments, &c. being as Intire an account as is Extant of this Nature. 
It begins thus. Iste Liber dicitur Gratia Dei Navicula recta Ecclesiae

The Effigies of The Tinker with his Dog & Boudget so frequently talk'd 
off to be seen in this Church, are now quite lost, tho' undoubtedly such a 
person was a Great Benefacto r to this Church. If his name was Chapman 
(as is Reported) I find in the afores d book he gave CXX" toward the 
Steple. The 4 Coats following are upon the afores d M r Botrights tomb.

These were two Infants as appears by the protraitures in Swadling 
+j+ Cloaths. In the Chancell is a flat stone with the Effigies of a Man 
in Armor & a woman on each hand, under that on his right hand 
ten children, and that on his left six, but the inscripcon is torn 
off. Also in the aforesaid isle is a Low Altar Tomb with the Effigies of 
a Kn' in armour & by his side a woman (4 arms lost) & round it was a 
Circumscripcon which perhaps might be that of William Yelverton Kn' 
menconed in Wever.

He was a loyal subject a Faithful Friend, 

a Good Neighbour, Truly Just & Wisely 

Charitable. He loved the Church & her 

well composed Liturgy & was a Constant 

Receiver of Holy Coraunions. He endowed 

the Vicaradge of This Town with a Good 

house & Some Land adjoyning to it. He left 

this world the 14 day of October in the 

yeare of his age 64 and in the yeare 

of our Lord God 1680. 

I am inform'd this man was in all respects ill deserving the Character 
upon this monum' nor is there any thing of his Endowing the Vicaridge 
with house or Land. 

At the west end of the Steple is a broken Crucifix of Stone, which seems 

to have been very beautifull when Intire. 
Adjoyning to the south side of the Church is built a Neat Library by 
that Worthy Gentleman Roger North of Rougham Esq r , and by him 
and other Benefactors furnished with a good Collection of Books. 
At the East end of the afores d North isle is painted a Crucifix upon the

And tho' by death, her body's turned to dust, 
'Tis fitt we still commemorate the just, 
'Twas here She did adore the highest Lord, 
Who to her Soul great Comfort did afford, 
'Twas here She did, with great Joy and Content 
Receive God's Holy Word and Sacrament,

Ann Tyrrell dyed 1638 aged 8 yeares & 6 months. 

Dear Virgine Child farewell thy mothers Teares 

Cannot advance thy memory, which beares 

A Crowne above the Starres, yet I must mourne 

And shew the world my offerings at thine urne. 

And yet not meerly as a mother make 

This sad oblation for a dear Childs sake, 

For (Readers) know she was more than a Child 

In infant age she was as grave as mild. 

All that in Children Duty call'd might bee 

In her was Friendship and true pietie 

By reason and Religion she at seaven 

Prepar'd her self and found her way to Heaven. 

High Heaven thou hast her and didst take her hence 

The perfect patterne of obedience. 

At those few years as only lent to show 

What duty young ones to their parents owe 

And by her Early Gravity Appearing 

Full ripe for God by serving and by Fearing 

To Teach the old to fix on him their Trust 

Before their bodies shall return to dust.

In memory of the right wor 11 & Worthy Knight S r Anthony Browne who 

departed this Life the 26 of March Anno 1623. 

Reader this monument of worthie Browne 
Reports the ruin of a house pull'd downe 
In which was found much Furniture of Worth 
When death Cofnanded their departing forth 
Truth of Religion Justice in his place 
Comended meekness Joyn'd with many a Grace 
As bountie in his howse in speech most kind 
And affable to all Content in mind 
With his Estate free from all ambition 
Mild moderate and fair was his Condition 
Though much he had yet would he deal with little 
Whose wisdome told him Earthly things are fickle 
The Chaine that holds us all even Love of breath 
Let him go Loose and willing to his death 
This house thus falling each one getts a part 
Of all which in his Life dwelt in one heart 
Brave worthy Knight beloved of all that knew 
What for thy Vertue to thy self was due 
Rest here thy Mortalls till that Trump do Sound 
Which empty shall this all devouring ground.

The which I beare him while he was alive 

He of his Love hath left one Pledge with me 
That in the same I might the Father see. 

And so Retayne his memorye in mynde 

Who was a Friend to all ; to me most Kinde.

Between the Chancell and South Chappell upon an Altar Tomb lye the 
Figures of a Knight and Lady at his left hand. The Tomb is Inclos'd 
with Iron Grates, and has several Coats of Arms Carv'd upon it (w ch I 
had not time to take down). The Inscription cut about the Stones (in 
Capital Letters) is this.

On y e North side. 

















On the North side of the Chancell is Erected a Square Chapell of Brick, 
on the west part of which is Rais'd a stately Monum 1 and under the 
Effigies of a Man and his wife kneeling (this Inscription) viz' (all capitals) 


Then under it in smaller capitals. 




















Behind the Effigies of the afores d S r John Petre is another Figure 
kneeling and under him, 8 Sons also kneeling. And over their heads a 
plain marble, I suppose design'd for an Inscription. 
Likewise behind the Lady is another woman kneeling w th four 
Daughters under her, and above her head, this Inscription.

In y e South side of the Chancell which chancell is of late structure, and 
(observe) has no Door into it from the Church yard. And when the 
Rev d M r John Bridge, Rebuilt our Chancell at Palgrave, I advis'd him 
to take pattern by this Building, which he consented to. It being more 
like a Quire in Cathedral churches &c. and I well Remember when the 
old chancell was in being, there were only a parcell of idle Boys, and 
the meanest of the parish us'd to come in at y e chancell Door, and 
throw their hats & caps upon the comunion Table, and sit themselves 
upon the Rails which Inclos'd it. Which was very indecent. M r William 
Bokenham and myself were Church wardens that Year viz' 17 [plank 
in orig.] The not having a Door into our Chancell has been objected 
to by several persons, but I never heard any substantial Reason given, 
so as to persuade an alteration &c.
