5/46 Bowness Table Tomb in
churchyard to south
of chancel


Table-tomb with square corner supports. Inscription badly worn but small brass
plate affixed near bottom of slab reads "Obit William Bowness December 11th 1767
Aged 82; Mary his Wife June 27th 1763 Aged 73. He gave in his lifetime Fifty
Pounds to the School of Bolton." Table-tomb itself probably that of another
William Bowness; a panel inside the church records that, in his will (dated
February 9th 1709), he left "... an annual rent of ten shillings to be
distributed upon his tomb stone to the poor of Bolton ... on the feast of Saint
Thomas the Apostle yearly for ever."
