7/438 Pair of Salmon headstones
approx 10m south of the chancel
of the Church of St Martin
GV II


Pair of headstones. Mid C18 in memory of members of the Salmon family. Both
are upright sandstone slabs standing approx 450mm with shaped heads carved
with winged cherubs' heads and inscriptions in Roman serif upper and lower
case lettering. However both are different in character. Left one records
the death of Edward Salmon in 1767 and the right one (cruder in character)
records the death of Ann Saman (sic) in 1757.
