ST 59 NE
10/190 Monument to Madocke family
in the churchyard 4 metres
south east of south porch
of Church of St Mary and
St Peter
Chest tomb. Probably of 1736, but with earlier dates inscribed. Sandstone. Flat,
inscribed top to moulded edge, 3 sunk panels north and south and one east and west,
moulded base, on platform with pointed square railings. At the south west end a
fine carved and painted coat of arms, Madocke family of Wibdon (see also inside
church). On top, inscription to Bridget Madocke, 1736, but inscriptions refer to
other members of the family back to 1587. In 1736, ten shillings were left by
Bridget Madocke to keep the inscriptions on this family tomb legible, and the
evidence of the painted coat of arms suggests that this is happily still in effect.
