Davison headstone 2 metres west of tower of Church of Ss.Peter and Paul


Headstone, 1802. Cut sandstone. Shaped top above inscription:

In memory of Alan Davison
Schoolmaster of this Place three and twenty years
Who died the 29th of Octr 1802
Greatly esteemed and regretted, aged 43 Years
Leaving a dutiful wife and a young and much loved
Daughter to lament his too early fate
A man not less distinguish'd for Probity of manners
Than acuteness of understanding
An able Mathematician
An eminent and excellent Teacher
Nor was that all the fame his name acquir'd
For worth and learning equally admir'd
Above disguise, or false delusive art
Then most beloved when most he shew'd his heart
There all was pure so friendly and sincere
Of ev'ry vice and ev'ry falsehood clear
With fortitude unshaken to the last
Thro' all vicissitude of life he past
Worn out at last by long disease and pain
Calm and composed ............ he came
