who died the 28th
Day of March 1768
Aged 44 Years.
My life was short my ffaith was bad
And with much praising and whailing.
Few knew the care I underwent.
That to few could give concent.
They that say I us'd them ill.
I hope will find a better still.
For I strove all lay in my Brest.
I hope with Christ my soul will rest.
(Stonemason: John Laughton, Cleeve)
