After my having written about the "Eark of Wiltshire", I am surprised
anyone is prepared to attach any credence to my statements!
>From the Guide:
"The Memorial Brasses: in the floor of the chancel is a beautiful
memorial brass. The Latin inscription reads: 'Here lies Margaret
Cheyne, once the wife of William Cheyne, who died the 23rd day of the
month of August in the year of our Lord 1419, on whose soul may God
have mercy, Amen'."
I have a copy of the original text, to which the above translation is
"Hic jacet Margareta quonda[m] uxor Willi[a]m Cheyne que obiit xxiii
die mensis Augusti anno domini Mill~imo CCCCo XIXo a[ni]mis o[ra]te
p[ro]piet. deus Amen"
The arms appear to be: a fess unduly, three crescents [hatchings
impossible to determine].
