Inscription EQ9 Index Plan < Prev. Next >

A tall stone with round top checked above rounded checked shoulders: the inscription is still largely visible; the poem italicised:

Memory of Martha,
Daughter of Samuel
and Martha BARHAM,
late of this Parish,
who died April the 6 1805
aged 18 Years.
The time was short together we did stay,
For God did call and she did him obey
In love we liv'd in peace she died
We pray'd for Life but God denied.

Haslewood p45-46
