Memorial (Ch.12.)

Marble Wall Monument

of Mr Edward Seward, third Son
of the Late Mr John Seward Gent.
of this Parish
He ne'er the Heights and Depths of Science trod
His better Science was to serve his God
He ne'er with avarice Swell'd his Little Store
But liv'd the frugal Steward of the Poor
To raise his own he sunk no neighbours Fame
Blameless himself he would not others blame
From self blown Pride and vain Ambitions free
His highest Glory was Humility.
He died June the 21st 1772 Aged 74
His Son in Law Mr Cartwright Morris
of London, Haberdasher
as a small Token of his Respect and Gratitude
Erected this Stone.
