Here she lies, whose spotlesse fame
invites a stone to learne her name.
The rigid Spartan, that deny’d
an Epitaph to all that dy’d,
Vnlesse for Warre or Chastity;

Shee did a Wife, but yet her minde
(beyond Virginity refinde)
From lawlesse fire remain’d as free,
as now from heat her ashes be.
Her husband (yet without a sinne)
was not a stranger, but her kin,
That her chaste Love might seeme no other,
vnto a husband then a brother.
Keepe well this pawne, thou marble chest,
till it be cal’d for, let it rest:
For while this Iewell here is set,
The grave is but a Cabinet.

The Gift of Sir Paul Pinder to
Saint Pauls Church in London.
SIR Paul Pinder Knight, in the
time of King Iames, his Majesties
Embassadour many yeeres, resi-
dent at Constantinople with the great
Turke, hath of sate, to the glory of God,
to the delight and content of all good
Protestants, and for the better expres-
sion of his love and zeale to true Reli-
gion, beautifully and bountifully with
great costs and charges, repaired the
old decayed stone worke of the West-
front of the Chancell in Saint Pauls
Church in London, adorning the out-
side thereof with many faire polished
pillers of blacke Marble, and with cu-
rious carved Statues of Kings and Bi-
shops, the first Founders and Benefa-
ctors of the whole Fabricke, and also
graced the inside thereof with divers
Angels and other ornaments; he hath
likewise amended and repaired all the
decayes and defects of the Wainscot
worke of the Quier, and hath further
beautified the same with a faire rayle
of Wainscot, and a great number of
Cherubins artificially carved: all
which work he hath caused to be sump-
tuously gilded and painted with rich
colours in Oyle; hee hath also magni-
ficently clothed the whole Quier, and
the upper part of the Presbytery, with
faire and chargeable Tapestry-Hang-
ings: Whose godly and pious exam-
ple, will (I hope) excite and stirre up
other Religious and well-minde Gen-
tlemen, and Citizens, to performe some
acts of piety and bounty towards the
reparation of the same Church.

The Antiquity of this famous Court
of Hustings, is much magnified by the

forth for ever by the Church of Ram-

the Court of Request, com-

an Act of Common
Councell was made,

that the Lord Maior
and Aldermen of the
same City for the time being, should
monethly assigne and appoint two Al-
dermen, and foure discreet Commo-
ners to be Commissioners to sit in the
same Court twice a weeke, viz. Wed-
nesday, and Saterday, there to heare
and determine all matters brought be-
fore them betweene party and party,
(being Citizens and Freemen of Lon-

their debts;

the same elsewhere:
Other Acts made since to the same purpose.
The same Act
hath sithence bin continued by divers
other Acts of Common Councell: and
hereby (besides the said two Aldermen
monthly assigned) the number of Com-
missioners were increased, from foure
to twelve. And so by that Authority,
the same Court continued till the end
of the Raigne of Queene Elizabeth, &c.
And then divers people, being Ci-
tizens and Freemen of London (contrary
to their Oathes formerly taken) repi-

such petty debts and causes against
poore men (Citizens and Freemen of
London) in the high Courts at West-

Court of Requests, to avoid the juris-

the said Commissioners from staying
such Suits, and examining the said cau-

men many times to pay sixe times as
much charges as their principall debts
or damage did amount unto, to the un-

and children, and also to the filling of
the Prisons with the poore so sued:

ambiguous words therein, and have
wrested the same for their owne lucre

godly meaning of the said Act.
For remedy whereof, and to the in-
tent that some more full and ample
provision might bee made for the fur-

Act) to minister an Oath to the Cre-

the Counters, such Creditor or Debtor,
as shall not appeare upon lawfull Sum-

To the Memory
Of Constance Whitney, eldest daugh-
ter to Sir Robert Whitney, of Whit-
, the proper possession of him and his
Ancestors, in Herefordshire, for above
500. yeeres past. Her Mother was the
fourth daughter of Sir Thomas Lucy.
of Charlecoite in Warwickshire, by
Constance Kingsmell, daughter and
Heire of Richard Kingsmell, Survey-
or of the Court of Wards. This Lady
Lucy, her Grandmother, so bred her
since she was eight yeeres old,
Thus farre written upon the figure
or resemblance of a Coffin.
As she excel’d in all noble qualities, becom-
ming a Virgin of so sweet propertion of
beauty and harmony of parts, she had all
sweetnesse of maners answerable:
A delightfull sharpnesse of wit;
An offencelesse modesty of conversation;
A singular respect and piety to her Pa-
rents; but Religious even to example.
She departed this life most Christianly, at
seventeene; dying, the griefe of all; but
to her Grandmother an unrecoverable
losse, save in her expectation, shee shall
not stay long after her, and the comfort of
knowing whose she is, and where in the
Resurrection to meet her.

Subdu’d large Territories,
and done things
Which to the World

But that the truth

Shall I report
his former service done
In honour of his God
and Christendome:

The Remaines.
How that he did
divide from Pagans three,
Their Heads and Lives,
Types of his Chivalry:
For which great service
in that Climate done,
Brave Sigismundus
(King of Hungarion)
Did give him as a Coat
of Armes to weare,
Those conquer’d heads
got by his Sword and Speare?
Or shall I tell
of his adventures since,
Done in Virginia,
that large Continence:
How that he subdu’d
Kings unto his yoke,
And made those Heathen flie,
as wind doth smoke;
And made their Land,
being of so large a Station,
A habitation
for our Christian Nation:
Where God is glorifi’d,
their wants suppli’d,
Which else for necessaries
might have di’d?
But what availes his Conquest,
now he lyes
Inter’d in earth,
a prey for Wormes and Flies?
O may his soule
in sweet Elizium sleepe,
Vntill the Keeper
that all soules doth keepe,
Returne to Iudgement,
and that after thence,
With Angels he may have
his recompence.

memory of one Coya Shawsware, a Per-
sian Merchant, and a principall ser-
vant and Secretary to the Persian Am-
bassadour, with whom he and his sonne
came over. He was aged 44. and buri-
ed the tenth of August, 1626. The Am-
bassadour himselfe, young Shawsware
his sonne, and many other Persians,
(with many expressions of their infi-
nite love and sorrow) following him to
the ground betweene eight and nine of
the clocke in the morning. The rites
and ceremonies that (with them) are
due to the dead, were chiefly perfor-
med by his sonne, who sitting crosse-
legged at the North end of the grave,
(for his Tombe stands North and
South) did one while Reade, another
while Sing; his Reading and Singing
intermixt with sighing and weeping.
And this, with other things that were
done in the Grave in private (to pre-
vent with the sight the relation) conti-
nued about halfe an houre.
But this was but this dayes businesse:
for, as this had not beene enough to
performe to their friend departed, to
this place and to this end (that is, Pray-
er, and other funerall devotions) some
of them came every morning and eve-
ning at sixe and sixe, for the space of a
moneth together. And had come (as
it was then imagined) the whole time
of their abode here in England, had not
the rudenesse of our people disturbed

Camera Dianae.
VPon Pauls wharfe Hill,
within a great gate, and
belonging to that gate
next to the Doctors Com-

Tenements, which in their Leases made
from the Deane and Chapter, goe by
the name or title of Camera Dianae; so
denominated from aspacious and speci-
ous building, that in the time of Henry
the second, stood where they now are
In this Camera, or arch’d and vaulted
Structure (full of intricate wayes and
windings) this H. the second (as some-
time he did at Woodstocke) did keepe, or
was supposed to have kept, that Iewell

there he called Rosa Mundi; and here,

had this house that title.
To this day are remaines, and some
evident testifications of tedious tur-
nings and windings; as also of a passage
under ground, from this house to Caste-Baynard,
which was no doubt the Kings
way from thence to his Camera Dianae,
or the Chamber of his brightest Diana.
Of the three Brethen appointed to preach at Saint
Maires Spittle at Easter 1632.
HAving renued the memory of

many memorable things of our owne

other, they met not so happily here to
preach, as in the matter upon which
they did preach: for though their Texts
were severall, their subject was one and
the same, this is worthy our observa-
tion; yet to make it worth admiration,
and a perpetuall memory, wee are to
take notice, how upon that one and the
same subject, they did precede and suc-
ceed one the other like the linkes in a
golden chaine, the second beginning
where the first ended, and the third
where the second ended; the last abso-
lutely concluding what the two former
had so absolutely induced to, with their
admirable ends and uses.
A briefe relation of the six children drowned at the
Ducking pond, Ianuary 19. 1633.
VPon Saterday the 19. of Ianu-
ary, 1633. sixe pretty young
Lads, going to sport themselves
upon the frozen Ducking-pond, neere
to Clearken well, the Ice too weake to
support them, fell into the water, con-
cluding their pastime with the lamen-
table losse of their lives: to the great
griefe of many that saw them dying,
many more that afterward saw them
dead, with the in-expressible griefe
of their Parents.
A briefe Relation of that lamentable Fire, that hapned
on London Bridge, the 13. of February 1633.
FRom this let us turne, our eyes up-
on that lamentable Fire upon Lon-
bridge, that upon Monday the
13. of February, 1633. betweene ele-
ven and twelve towards midnight gave
us ashes in stead of Beauty: the ashes,
into which the third part of the Bridge
was consum’d, for the beautifull Frames
so consumed.
The number of the houses then burnt
on both sides the Bridge, from the
Church called Saint Magnus, to the
first open place, were two and for-
ty; all which (with a great part of
their wares, the goods, and rich furni-
ture in them) were devoured to the
ground (though many hands, much la-
bour, with a great deale of feare and
danger, were carefully employed to
prevent it) before eight of the clocke
the next morning. Thus suddenly they
were burnt to the ground, all above
ground quencht and extinguisht, but
beneath in their Vaults and Cellars, the
fire remained glowing and burning for
the space of a whole weeke after.
The house in which it began was the
house of one Master Brigs (at the hither
end of the Bridge) a Needle-maker:
but now it beganne, because divesly
spoken by many, I would not set downe
from any.
The losse was great and sudden, pre-
senting (as a glasse) the length of a
lease or of life, when such a sad chance
shall betide us. Though getting a long
lease of our lands, we presume of a lease
of our lives, of a long and secure pos-
session; like those in the 4. of Iames,
that say, To day or to morrow we will goe
into such a City, and continue there for a
yeere, and buy, and sell, and get money
They will goe, they will stay, they will
get, such losses as these never thought
on; though the same Prophet (in
the same place) tell them, They know
not what the morrow may bring with

foure miles about LONDON:

Body Soule united,
agree’d in one,
Like strings well tuned

No discord harsh

’Twas Heaven, the Earth,

Wherefore may well be said.
He lived well;
And being dead,
the world his vertues tell.
Though Richard Lusher
sleepeth in the dust,
He sleepes in hope,
and hopes to live againe:
His soule in Heaven
is waking with the just,
And wakes in joy,

Bones take your rest,
your soule in Heaven attends,
The blest re-union

He left the preservation

thy wrath in him is ended,
Maugre thy darts,
his praises cannot dye,
Thou hast his body,
but his soule ascended
Into the place
of joyes eternity,
And though his corps inter’d
lye dead in grave,
Yet still his vertues
life and being have.
An. Dom. 1597.
In Parliament, a Burgesse,
Cole was placed,
In Westminster
the like for many yeeres,
But now with Saints above
his soule is graced,
And lives a Burgesse
with Heavens royall Peeres.
Oblessed change, from earth,
where Death is King,
To be united there
where Angels sing.
Ejusdem in eundem.
Terra tegit Corpus, mens scandit
ad Aethera Coeli,
Fama virens floret,
Caetera mors rapuit.
Thus in English.
The Grave my body,
Heaven my soule doth keepe,
The World my fame,
the rest in death doth sleepe.
Margaretta Cole posuit.
In another columne of the same Table.
This Monument unites
two constant Lovers,
He that is dead,
and her that lives in death:
His Body she, his Spouse,
in honour covers,
Wishing her dayes
were shortned with his death.
But she must live,
yet living shall be mated,
With him in death,
while death her life hath dated.
Full twenty yeeres and odde
their league was firme,
Witnesse the world,
their children, and their love,
Nothing but death, by death
should give the tearme
Of farewell to their faith,
by false remove.
Of breach of concord
no tongue can accuse them,
Vnlesse base envy
by her Saints abuse them.
O envy not the dead,
but die to sinne,
Expect the harvest
of this dead mans blisse,
Desire the Crowne
which envy cannot winne,
Amend in you, not others,
what’s amisse.
Sad death shall be
your Herauld to procure
Rest to your soules
with Christ for to endure.
Marget in woe, distill
those teares to comfort,
And in thy childrens love
addresse thy anguish:

The Remaines.
Three live with thee,
then love their living consort,
No longer in thy Husbands
sorrow languish.
But imitate thy Cole
in Vertues lawes,
That thou maist live where
Vertue pleads his cause.

. yeeres, lying in the Bed-

all, doing good all she could to eve-
ry body, never hurted any; a con-
tinuall remembrancer of the suites
of the poore. As shee lived a religi-
ous life, in great reputation of ho-
nour and vertue in the world, so she
ended in continuall fervent medita-
tion and hearty prayer to God. At
which instant (as all her life) so after
her death shee gave liberally to the
poore, and died aged 78. the 22.
of September 1604. In whose re-
membrance, Sir Edward Stafford her
Sonne hath caused this memoriall

Neere unto the other, in a faire
Plate, is this following
A memoriall on the death of Iohn Varnam
Gardiner, who deceased the xj. of De-
cember, 1586. Aetatis suae 46.
O mortall man that lives on earth,
consider well thy end,
Remember that thou must depart,
when God for thee doth send.
This life is but a pilgrimage,
so soone it doth decay,
And all the riches of this world
shall fade and passe away:
As by example daily shew’d,
before our eyes we see,
That rich & poore to earth are brought
for their iniquity.
Let us that live on earth behind,
to God for mercy call,
With wofull heart & wringing hands,
and he will blesse us all.

The Remaines.
And now to speake of this good man,
Iohn Varnam cal’d by name,
Who in his life he lived well,
by labour, travaile, and paine,
In helping of the fatherlesse,
and widowes very poore,
And setting ever them on worke
which went from doore to doore.
A Gardiner by Art he was,
great skill he had therein,
And prosper’d well in all his life,
with every living thing
That he at all times tooke in hand:
To God be given all praise,
That did increase this honest man
with riches many wayes.
The poore they had great work of him,
by weeding of his ground,
And he to them was well content,
to leave assurance found,
Of land and living to releeve
the fatherlesse in need,
So he confirmed this his minde,
by will it was decree’d.
Agnes Varnam left behind,
his loving wife most sure,
By her he had foure sonnes, likewise
foure daughters, Virgins pure:
Who all being dead, and none alive,
but Elizabeth by name,
And in remembrance of his life,
they have set up this same.
He willingly did yeeld himselfe,
in God was all his trust,
And in the last houre of his death,
he shew’d his faith most just,
To leave this world most cheerefully,
desirous to depart,
Asking forgivenesse of the world,
and forgiving with his heart
To those which he at any time
in deed or word offended:
Most joyfully his soule was then
vnto the Lord commended.
And thus he left his life,
in briefe to tell you plaine,
Hoping in Heaven to be receiv’d,
for ever to remaine.
In the same Ile, in the body of
the Church, is this In-
Cornelius Vandun lieth here, borne at
Breda in Brabant, Souldier with King
Henry at Turney, Yeoman of the
Guard, and Vsher to King Henry,
King Edward, Queene Mary, and
Queene Elizabeth: of honest and
vertuous life, a carefull man for poore
folke, who in the end of this towne
did build for poore widowes twenty
houses of his owne cost.
Round about his figure wrought as in
his Guards Coat, these words.

Sweet Virgin,
that I doe not set
Thy Grave-verse up
in mournfinll Jet
Or dapl’d Marble,
let thy shade
Not wrathful seeme,
or fright the maid,
Who hither at her
weeping howres,
Shall come to strew
thy earth with flowres:
No, know blest soule,
when there’s not one
Remainder left
of brasse or stone,
Thy living Epitaph
shall be
Though lost in them
yet found in me:
Deare, in thy bed
of Roses then,
Till this world shall
dissolve (as men)
Sleepe, while we hide thee
from the light,
Drawing thy Curtains round—
Good night.
On a Table hanging at the up-
per end of the South Ile is

Tell thou my wailing verse,
and mourning show,
What beauteous frame
lies here interr’d below.
Here underneath entomb’d
a Dazie lies,
The pride of nature,
with perfection fil’d;
O woe, whom Zephyres blasts
can ne’r make rise,
Being by Deaths blacke storms
untimely kild.
Ratcliffe’s thy name,
the glory of the Court,
Vertue and Beauty strove
t’adorne thee most,
Though here inclos’d,
yet fame shall still report
Thy Vertues praise,
thy graces time shall boast,
Thou di’dst a Virgin pure,
and spotlesse liver,
Griefe caus’d thy death,
death makes thee live for ever.
If any aske, who sigh’d
this sad complaint,
Say one that liv’d, that lov’d,
that ioyed, now faint.
