Listing Text


873-1/29/638 (West side)
Fooks, Mackenzie and Walis monuments
approx 3m NW of Church of All Saints


3 headstones. 1681,1769 and 1832. Portland stone. The 3
monuments lie in a straight row, the nearest being approx 3.5m
from the NW corner of the tower, and spreading approx 2.5m
From S to N: (i) To James Mackenzie, d.1769. A bold scrolled
head embraces a modelled upper part with putti, a skull and
bones. The inscription is on a plain panel below; (ii) To John
Isles Fooks, d.1832. A plain round-headed stone with clear
inscription; (iii) To Elizabeth, wife of Henry Walis (sic),
d.1681. A thick stone with bold high relief carving of a skull
with a heart in the mouth, flanked by cornucopiae and leaf
decoration. Below this the stone has slightly raised margins,
with a flat segmental top band carried on square responds to
side 'pilasters'. The sunk panel has an inscription in
capitals, filling the space, and with wayward spacing. On the
head band is the motto 'O DEATH WHERE IS THY STING', which has
been scratched over in recent times. The stone is partly sunk,
and the inscription may continue below the ground; it is the
earliest in-situ monument identified in the churchyard.
