INTRODUCTION 

The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Walthamstow, is beyond question the most ancient institution the 
town possesses, and around its site have centred the domestic and communal activities of the inhabitants for 
nearly nine hundred years. Here the infant in the arms of its parents was submitted for baptism and reception 
into the church : here, too, the young men and maidens from the hamlets of Walthamstow, and elsewhere, 
pledged their troth and were joined in wedlock by priest or parson ; and here, finally, infant, child, youth, man 
and maiden, middle-aged, or venerable grandsire, were brought preparatory to burial either in church or 
surrounding yard. Many, indeed most, lived unknown and passed " unhonoured and unsung" into the oblivion 
of forgetfulness, virtues and vices alike forgotten, existing, if at all, as names only in some Manor Court Roll or 
Parish Register. For the great majority no memorial survives to record their names, ages, parentage, progeny 
or virtues, and to express a pious hope of triumphant resurrection and glorious immortality. Yet all alike, 
gentle and simple, cherished the desire to be held in perpetual remembrance, and to this end those whose wealth 
enabled them to do so founded and endowed schools, or a chantry in a church which they had, perhaps, rebuilt 
or enlarged, so that prayers might be recited or a sermon preached at stated times for the well-being of their 
souls. Others, may be, constructed roads or causeways over marshy, boggy lands liable to flooding, or earned the 
gratitude of their fellows by procuring a water supply to waterless neighbourhoods, or one of greater purity than 
that to be obtained from contaminated wells and springs in the days when drainage of a scientific character was 
unknown. Deeds of charity to the poor and needy, and funds left for their succour and maintenance ; the erection 
of houses of alms to shelter them in age or adversity; all proclaim the desii e of the benefactors to be remembered 
by the generations following after. 

Many such excellent benefactions continue to keep alive the memory of the founders, and many grateful 
partakers vouchsafe their meed of thankfulness and perpetuate the memory of hiin, or her, who long before had 
by these means ensured the continuance of name and fame. Even so, such bids for futurity were possible 
only to the comparatively few, and yet there were many good and charitable men and women, who had served 
their day and generation passing well, and who to lamenting relatives and friends seemed deserving of some 
lasting commemoration. Some were actually sepulchred within the church, the place of honour being the 
chancel, others in aisle or crossing near unto the pews they occupied in life. To the more important of these 
large and costly monuments were erected, and to those of lesser degree a marble slab or ledger stone, adorned 
with the arms they bore and inscription of their names and record above the place of the interment of their 
mortal remains. 

Naturally, the floor space available was limited, and so, whether buried in church or churchyard, many 
slabs, ornate or plain in design, were placed upon the walls and pillars where all could see and read. These 
slabs succeeded largely the former method of commemorating the deceased by the representation of his effigy 
and that of his wife, or wives, and children in brass or " latyn," or by an inscription only, in the same material, 
inlaid in a matrix in a slab upon the floor or on the flat upper surface of an altar tomb. Each type of 
memorial is well represented in Walthamstow Church, for of brasses we have (15) Wm. Rowe, (21) Robert 
Rampston, (59) George Monoux, (60) Henry Crane, and (61) Hale, etc., while of the more important monu- 
ments those of 3) Stanley, i22) Merry, and (45) Traflbrd are noteworthy. Yet another method was the record 
in stained or painted glass with which some of the windows were filled, and this was employed in times both 
ancient and modern. .^Vt- (36), (37) and (121). 

Of some of the monuments we know a little more than the records that they give; for instance, that 
to Sir Thomas Merry and Dame Mary his wife. Sir Thomas held the office of Chief Controller, and received the 
honour of Knighthood in 1617. His wife Mary died in 1032, and Sir Thomas erected this monument to their 
joint memory on her death. The date of his death is not recorded on the tomb. For the making of this 
monument Sir Thomas employed the best craftsman of his time in the person of Nicholas Stone, architect and 
sculptor, and master mason to the King. He was responsible for about eighty monuments in the churches of 
many counties, mostly in London, the South and Midlands, although there are two examples of his work in 
Northumberland and four in Yorkshire. London has twenty, SuflTolk nine, and Kent and Norfolk eight each. 
In our County there are two— the Pynchon monumental Writtle, for which he received 100 marks, ;.c., £66 13s. 4d., 
and the one in our own church. Nicholas Stone was born at Woodbury, near Exeter, in 1586, died 



24 August, 1647, aged 61, and was buried at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London, 28 August, 1647, where there was 
a monument to his memory, which was wantonly destroyed when Gibbs erected the new church, 1721-6. 
A description of this monument is given in Hatton's " New View of London,'' 1708, and Vertue preserves the 
inscription which will be found in the British Museum Additional MSS. 23068, p. 83. From his account book 
which is printed in Vol. 7 of the Walpole Society's publications we learn that — 

" In 1633 I mad a tombe for Ser Thomas Meary & his lady & it standeth at Waltham Stow 
hear by in Esex for the which I had £50." 
Although this is a finer and larger monument than the Writtle one, the cost was less, accounted for, perhaps, by 
the lesser distance from London. The panegyric verses are said to have been written by Sir William Uavenant, 
the Royalist poet, which is quite likely, for Sir Thomas Merry was an ardent adherent of the Royal cause, and 
suffered heavily for his loyalty. As shown by deeds, in the possession of the Town, Sir Thomas Merry's 
VValthamstow residence was the " VVinns." In the same year that her mother died, Anne, one of the daughters 
depicted upon the base of the tomb, married Thomas Cheney, of Sundon, co. Bedford, Esq., son and heir 
apparent of the Right Worshipful Sir Thomas Cheney, Kt. 

Several of the charitable benefactions to the Town carried a contingent liability for the maintenance and 
repair of the testator's tomb in church or yard. Sigismund Trafford (45), by his will dated 1723, for keeping his 
tomb in the Church in repair gave £10 per annum, 10s., part thereof to be paid the sexton by quarterly payments 
for keeping it clean. His will requires a fund of £50 to be raised as a stock for the above purposes and the 
overplus of the said annuity to be disposed of as the minister or churchwardens in Vestry assembled shall deem 
meet. Proviso, if the tomb be out of repair for six months, or other interments than by permission be made in 
the vault the legacy reverts to the possessors of the fee simple of lands in St. Mary's Lincoln from which the 
rent charge is paid. 

John Morley (66), by will proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, Nov. 19, 1845, gave the 
dividends on £300 3% Consolidated Bank Annuities to be paid to the Vicar and Churchwardens for the time 
being, they undertaking to apply the same in paying and discharging the expenses of preserving and keeping in 
good order and in repairing the vault, monument and tablet in the church and churchyard, and the yearly surplus 
to be distributed in bread. 

Of a rather different character was the bequest by will dated 16 June, 1735, of Jeremiah Wakelin (44), 
who left a piece of land called the Pound Field to the use of the poor on condition that his heirs possess a pew 
in the South Aisle of the church and a bricked grave therein with privilege to erect a monument in memory of 
his family ; otherwise the profits of the land to revert to his heirs for ever. These particulars are taken from 
"An Account of Benefactions in the Parish of St. Mary, Walthamstow, extracted from the original instruments, 
by William Houghton, vestry clerk," and printed by order of the Vestry in 1877. 

The inscriptions generally tell their own story, but amplifications could be made in most instances if 
space permitted. Additional information in the following cases may be desirable. 

(9) The Mores are an old Walthamstow family, their connection with the parish gomg as far back as 
1533, when Johanna Mores, of Walthamstow, had licence to marry Christopher Yorke, of -St. Stephen's, Coleman 
Street, London. The last surviving member of the family, I believe, was Edward Rowe Mores, who built Etloe 
House, Leyton, where he died, and was buried at Walthamstow, Dec. 8th, 1778. 

(15) William Rowe's friendship with European scholars and divines may very well connect him with the 
production of the Geneva Bible with which the two specially mentioned on his brass, viz., Emanuel Tremellius 
and Theodore Beza, were intimately concerned. They were members of the group which Calvin gathered 
around him at Geneva, which Beza joined in 1548, becoming Greek Professor at Lausanne the following year. 
On Calvin's death in 1564 he became his biographer and successor. While admitting his scholarship and 
attainments, his biographers say that "as a historian Beza has been the source of serious mistakes, but as an 
administrator he softened the rigour of Calvin." His editions and Latin versions of the New Testament had an 
influence on the English versions of Geneva, 1557 and 1560, and London, 1611. The famous Codex " D " 
was presented by him in 1581 to Cambridge University with a dubious account of the history of the manuscript. 
Beza was also a friend and correspondent of Lady Anne Bacon, formerly Anne Cooke, of Gidea Hall, Romford, 
and to her he dedicated his " Meditations." Beza died 13 Oct., 1605. Emanuel Tremellius is perhaps best 
known for his version of the Psalms issued with Beza's Bible. 

(25) The Registers of Wadham College, Oxford, record the death of one of the "large family" of 
Tristram Conyers. William, son of Tristram Conyers, of Walthamstow, was admitted at the age of 17 in 1672, 
and died about 17 Dec, 1676, and was buried in the Outer Chapel there under a stone inscribed "W.C.17 Dec. 1676." 



(45) The wife of Sigismund Trafford was formerly Susanna Ormes, of Dalston, co. Middlesex, widow, 
whom he had licence to marry dated 20 Jan., 1678-9. 

(58) Mary Lester Blicke was not buried at Walthamstow, but in the churchyard of VVanstead, where 
a coped stone records : " Mary Lester Blicke, relict ot W. F. Blicke & late of Walthamstow died 15 Dec. 1866 
aged 79." 

(75) This pathetic memorial, with its allusion to his father's services in the East, provokes enquiry, and 
the following particulars are supplied by the High Commissioner for India from the Library at India House, 
Aldwych, London, the sources from which the information is taken being the East India Military Calendar, the 
Ormc MSS., and the Gentleman' s Magazine : — 

"Alexander Champion, Colonel, Infantry, Commander-in-Chief, Bengal. Lieut., 20 Sep., 1757. 
Capt., 1 Sep., 1758. Major, 6 Nov., 1763. Lt.-Col., 4 Nov., 1766. Col., 8 Aug., 1770. 
Retired 29 Dec, 1774. Married 11 Feb., 1759, Miss Francis Nynd, who remarried 
4 Jan., 1796, Rev. Thomas Leman, of Wenhaston Hall, Suffolk. 

" Services : — Served in the campaigns of 1760-1 in Bengal under Majors John Caillaud and John 
Carnac ; defeated Kamgar Khan, Nawab of Tirhut, April, 1761. Second-in-Command to 
Major (afterwards Gen. Sir Hector) Munro when opposed to Shuja-ud-Daulah, 1764 ; 
battle of Buxor. Shortly afterwards commanded a detached force on the Midnapore 
frontier. Appointed to command 1st Bengal European Regt. Aug. 1765. First Rohilla 
War ; battle of St. George ; Col. commanding 2nd Brigade. Succeeded Sir Robert 
Barker as Commander-in-Chief Bengal .\rmy, 18 Jan., 1774, and held this appointment 
till 27 Oct., 1774, when he retired and returned to England the following year. He 
died at Bath, 15 March, 1793, and is buried in the Abbey there, where there is a mural 
tablet by Nollekens to his memory, which says, 'he rose, in the course of twenty years' 
active service in India, to the chief command of the Company's troops in Bengal.' " 

(79) Although the relationship is not stated, it would appear that the Nash's were the grandchildren of 
Capt. Robert Cowley, for on Apl. 25, 1689, Samuel Nash, of St. Dunstans in the East, merchant, batchelor, 
about 34, and Lydia Cowley, spinster, above 21, with consent of her father Robert Cowley of Walthamstow, 
gent., had licence to marry and did so at Ilford on 2 May, 1689. Apparently Esther, Lydia, Martha, Mary and 
James were the issue of this marriage, and dying unmarried, at great ages, were buried in their grandfather's 
tomb, the latest interment, that of Mary Nash, taking place, just over 103 years after her grandfather had been 
laid to rest. 

(84) The Rt. Rev. William Pierse lived in troublous times, and suffered many vicissitudes ; nevertheless, 
he did notable work in the reparation of Wells Cathedral and the erection of the Episcopal Palace there. It is 
possible that during his deprivation he resided at " Winns," and almost certainly died there, full of years and 
" ripe for Heaven." 

Very impressive is her husband's heartbroken tribute to his wife in No. 1, after one short year of 
married life. No more beautiful record adorns our Church : " Whom the Gods love die young." 

The monuments reveal many instances of longevity, there being three nonogenarians — Mary Nash, 
97, Rev. William Pierse, 94, and Jane Maria Beal Bonnell, 93— and no less than fifteen octogenarians ; and, 
at the other extreme, of those who experienced but fewness of days, the shortest is John Kenworthy (No. 77), 
who lived but fourteen. 

Nichols's "Anecdotes of Bowyer" give us some particulars of one of our learned Vicars, the Rev. Edmund 
ChishuU, 1708-33. Utilising a travelling fellowship from Corpus Christi College, Oxford, he travelled extensively 
in the East, and being appointed Chaplain to the factory at Smyrna, he resided there for three or four years. 
His travels in Turkey were published after his death, but he himself published an account of the Antiquities of 
Asia before the Christian Era. Several of his sermons were also printed. During his incumbency he 
industriously collected many thmgs relating to Walthamstow and the Church from other writers, correspondence, 
inscriptions, etc., which he wrote on spare pages of the Parish Register, and these notes have afforded 
useful information. 

The illustrations are reproduced from water-colour drawings of very great merit by an unknown artist, 
who was an expert at this class of work. They were evidently done to extra-illustrate Lyson's " Environs of 



London,' about 1800, or just before, and I purchased them many years ago in order to secure the Essex items, 
which comprised about 20 out of a total of 200. The remainder all concern monuments in London's environs 
in Middlesex, Surrey and Kent. The two selected for illustration have been chosen in the case of the Bonnell 
monument, because this has now unfortunately been broken, and the detached parts are separated. The 
illustration depicts it in its completeness. In the case of the Trafford monument this is now somewhat 
obscured by the west gallery, and is not so easily seen as the Merry and Stanley monuments, which are 
of greater historical interest. 

The preparation and issue of this Monograph has been delayed by a protracted period of ill-health, and 
even now could not have appeared without the whole-hearted co-operation and assistance of Mr. G. E. 
Roebuck. Other friends who have willingly helped are : Dr. P. H. Reaney, M.A., who has rendered the often 
corrupt and impure Latin into charming English : Mr. Richard S. Smith, who has patiently checked the 
accuracy of many of the inscriptions ; and the Hon. Philip Cary, York Herald, who has revised the heraldic 
readings. To each I give my sincere thanks, realising that without their aid this production would have lacked 
much that contributes to its value.

2.— Sacred i to the beloved | and cherished memory of | SIR WILLIAM DOMVILLE BAR^ | 
of St. Albans, Herts, and I Southfield Lodge, Eastbourne, Sussex | born 22 March 1774, died 21 May 



1. — To Anne, his beloved wife, John Wainwright, her sorrowing husband, erected ihis monument. One short year 
they had spent together in their home in peaceful happiness and mutual affection when the terrible pangs of child-birth 
seized her in the flower of her age, her beauty, and her health. For a day or two she suffered greatly and was at last pain- 
fully delivered of a stillborn daughter. Then she was attacked by fever which easily carried her off, for her strength was 
shattered. A woman renowned for her many virtues was removed from mortal sight. She was an ornament of her father's 
family, a girl of remarkable modesty and piety, a wife of the utmost prudence and attention to her domesdc affairs. She 
sought not the splendid and the costly but cared for what was seemly. She was a marvellous mistress of methodical order. 
Kindly in conversation, cheerful of countenance, her spirit was gentle, constant, placid. She was eager to do all she could 
to make her husband happy. Deprived of this light of his Ufe, this sweet partner and comforter in his anxieties, he is 
spending the rest of his life a sad and lonely widower. Unable to forget his bitter, cruel loss, and almost insane with a 
natural grief, he places his sole hope in Christ, confident in His promises, eager for immortal life, ever mindful of his 
consort, and displaying a love that will live for ever.

16. — William Rowe of lligham Hill in the County of Essex, gentleman, third son of Sir Thomas Rowe, was excellently 
trained in the study of the humanities at Merton College, Oxford. He won the highest praise and not only gained the degree 
of Master of Arts at home, but also, on account of his great learning and piety, became a friend of learned men abroad, in 
Germany and France, especially of Emanuel Tremellius and Theodore l{e7a. He married Anne Cheyney, daughter of 
John Cheyney, Esq., of Chesbam Boys in the County of Buckingh-amshire. I le was generous to the poor and hospitable to all 
so far as his means allowed. He loved peace himself and strove to inculcate it in others by mutual services. When money 
was needed for public purposes, he took great care that more was not demanded from his neighbours than their lair share 
and himself paid a large part of what was demanded that those of slender purse might not complain that ihey were being 
impoverished : finally, for his relatives and others he set an example of true piety and virtue : at last, after a life honourably 
and nobly spent, lamented by his friends and neighbours, he died a noble death on 29 June, 1596. 

15 (2). — William Rowe, a son of the same father (who was mayor of the City of London), was a man well-known in 
his own country and in foreign lands, so great was his reputation for learning. He was a lover of peace and goodness and 
kind to the common people to whom his purse was ever open. To his five sons and his four daughters, their father, when 
dying, committed his bones to be buried in this soil.

man. Here he lies, deeply lamented by his bereaved father. In the morning the bells will not break his sleep and the noble 
boys of the school of Walth.anislow will mourn for him. Never will he, like his father who, with warlike spirit, laid low 
the peoples of the Kast, never will he wage wars that will be told in story. In vain does his mother await him on the shores 
of India ; she will rend her hair when she hears of his death. But tears will cease, for 'tis only his body that has been taken 
from us. His better part survives in the blessed vault of heaven.

The Office set to Pastors true 

By Cliiist, his flock to guide, 

Is unto them his faith to preach, 

.■Xtid from it never slide ; 

The duty to the flock assigned, 

God's Word is to obey, 

And on the same to stay themselves. 

With Faith & Hope alway. 

For here on earth as pilgrims strange. 

We daily seek for rest, 

Yet finding none because we be 

With sinful flesh opprest. 

No state on earth, no pomp may last, 

No f?esh can long endure, 

But being earth, to earth shall turn. 

Of this we be most sure. 

Then sith our days be full of ill. 

While we do pass the same. 

Let us redeem them doing good 

Not seeking praise or fame. 

But glory praise & honour due 

Yield we to God of right. 

Whose promise is, all darkness past 

To give us his true light. 

Out of his mouth goes a label with these words : 

" POST tenebras spero lucem."
