3/76 Wheaton Chest tomb approximately 3
- metres south of chancel of Church
of St Michael
Chest tomb. Dated 1805 in memory of William Wheaton. Beerstone ashlar. Chest tomb
is rectangular in plan. The flat lid has moulded edges and the tomb sits on a
moulded plinth. On the south side there are 2 panels with bead-moulded surrounds.
Both are inscribed in Roman serif upper and lower case lettering and each records
the death of William Wheaton; one died 1803, the other in 1805. On the north side
an earlier slab of Beerstone is flanked by 2 narrow panels. This has been reused
from an older tomb. It is inscribed in Gothic lettering and it records the death of
one Thomas Hendo in 1610. This is believed to be the Thomas Haydon who was
responsible for the major late C16 refurbishment of Poltimore Farmhouse (q.v).
