A RETVRNE
TO
LONDON:
In which most of the Parish Churches have of late
yeeres beene Rebuilded, Repaired, or at
least Beautified.
A Catalogue whereof here followeth, wherein not only the
yeere in which, but the meanes likewise by which, each Worke was
perfected are set downe, as also all the Monuments of Queene
Elizabeth, as they are in every Church.
S. Albanes Woodstreet.
I Am sorry, that, but now
beginning to speake of
Building, repairing, and
Beautifying of all the
Parish Churches in this
famous City of London,
I must in the very Front of the Alpha-
bet (for that is the rule I goe by) speake
of the pulling downe, Demolishment,
and Ruines of a Church, and one of the
most ancient among them; Saint Al-
banes
in Woodstreet.
This Church, being wonderfully
decayed and perished, was by these
Gentlemen, Sir Henry Spiller, Enigo
Iones
, Esquire, Captaine Leake, and
Captaine Williams surveyed, to see
what repaire might helpe it. But by
these Gentlemen, and Workemen ap-
pointed with them, it was found to be
too farre gone for Repaire; neither
would any Workeman put himselfe
into hazard upon it: affirming it to be
in every part of it, so spent, decayed,
and enfeebled, that they must sudden-
ly plucke it downe, or it would sudden-
ly prevent that labour, and fall to the
ground of it selfe: which the Fallings
every day encreasing (and more and
more growing and appearing) did most
evidently seeme to threaten.
For this cause, many of the Parish-
oners refused to goe to it, many that
went, went unwillingly, but all with
much feare, where they sate with
more; their danger all the time much
troubling and disturbing their De-
votion.
This great necessity inforcing, it
was the last yeere 1632. betwixt Ea-
ster and Midsummer pul’d downe, and
yet Iuly, 1633. (a sad object) so lies
in its pitifull ruines.
Many of the ablest sort of this Pa-
rish, to shew they would doe what
they could towards the recovery of
this

The Remaines.

this great losse, have joyned certaine
monies (their free and voluntary gifts)
together, which they have againe dis-
bursed in Stone, and some other Ma-
terials.
But this many, being but few, to the
number of those that in this kind, can
doe little or nothing, and their good
wills falling extremely short of that
great summe that must beginne and
finish so great a Worke as this, they
were constrained to petition his High-
nesse for his Letters Patents, for the
helpe of a collection for it.
Their Petition graciously received,
his Majesty was pleased (as a cause of
all other his Piety especially favours)
to send his Letter to the Lord Bishop
of London, for the forwarding and ef-
fecting their desires.
Yet notwithstanding this faire de-
gree to their wish, they are for a time
put off, by reason (as I am informed)
of the great Collection for the repaire
of the famous Cathedrall Church of
Saint Paul, but they hope it will not
be long.
In which hope they have many Part-
ners, as also in their Prayers, for all the
good meanes that may be, to the spee-
dy rebuilding of it; till which time,
the Church appointed unto them for
the Sabbath. Exercises, Marriage, Bu-
rying, Churching, and the Sacra-
ments, is the Parish Church of Saint
Alphage neere Cripplegate. And thus
much of this Church, Saint Albanes.
Alhallowes Barking.
THis Church was repaired and
beautified in the yeere of our
Lord God, 1613. and within
some few yeeres before and after (in
their severall times) other wants were
supplied and furnished, viz.
A very faire new Pulpit set up, many
faire Pewes, a faire Communion table,
with other gracefull Ornaments to it.
This Table was the gift of one Master
Iohn Burnell, all the rest the charge of
the Parish: Also in the South Ile, over
the entry into the Church, in the yeere
of our Lord 1627. there was a very
handsome Gallery erected, at the cost
and charge of the Parish.

In the Ile against this place, lyeth the
body of Francis Covell, Citizen and
Skinner of London, he lived in this
Parish 52. yeeres, was married to
his wife Margery 42. yeeres, had
Issue by her Thomas his onely sonne.
He had borne Office in his Compa-
ny, and this Ward, with good re-
putation, was in his life Religious,
Peaceable, and Charitable, and at
his death gave Clothing to the
poore of this Parish yeerely for ever.
Hee lived 69. yeeres, and rendred
his soule in peace to God, Septem-
ber 7
. 1625.
Alhallowes Bredstreet.
THis Church, in the many de-
cayed places of it, was repai-
red, and in every part of it rich-
ly and very worthily beautified, at the
proper cost and charges of the Parishi-
oners, in the yeere of our Lord God
1625.
  • Samuel Tucker
  • William Hunt
    • Churchwardens.
On the South side of the Chancell,
in a little part of this Church, called
The Saltars Chappell, is a very faire
Window, with the Portraiture or Fi-
gure of him that gave it, very curiously
wrought upon it, with this Inscrip-
tion:
Thomas Beamont Salter, the Founder
of this Chapell, and a worthy Benefactor
to the Company of the Salters. 1629.
This Window being then erected.
In the midst of this little Chappell,
in a faire Marble Tombe, this man
with his two wives lies interred. The

the Verses, you may reade in page 391.

To the sacred Memory▪
Of that worthy and faithfull Minister
of Christ, Master Richard Stocke,
who after 32. yeeres spent in the
Ministery, wherein by his learned
Labours, joyn’d with Wisdome,
and a most holy life, Gods glory
was much advanced, his Church
edified, Piety increased, and the
true honour of a Pastors place main-
tained, deceased Aprill, 20. 1626.
Some of his loving Parishoners have
consecrated this Monument of their
never-dying love, Ian. 28. 1628.

(O Reverend Stocke)
Like Aarons Rod

And after two

For why, this worke of Piety,
Performed by some of thy Flocke,
To thy dead Corps and sacred Vrne,
Is but the fruit of this old Stocke.
A faire new Monument in the South Ile,
on the wall, almost at the
upper end.
This Monument was erected at the
cost of this Parish, in memoriall of
Master Iohn Dunster, Citizen and
Cothworker of London, who lieth
buried neere this place, and gave a-
mongst other charitable gifts, 200.
pounds towards the late building of
this Church, and 200. pounds,
which hath purchased 12. pounds
a yeere for ever, towards the repara-
tion of the same. He departed this
life the 14. of October, 1625. being
of the age of 58. yeeres.

THis Church, with much cost
bestowed on the Steeple, was
in many parts of it Repaired,
and thorowout richly and worthily
beautified, at the proper cost & charge
of the Parishioners, in the yeere of our
Lord God 1627. and 1629.

There was at this time a faire Gal-
lery built at the West end of the
Church, and in the North Ile a new
doore made, almost at the upper end.
The last yeere 1632. all the Iles, to
the Chancell, were raised a foot and a
halfe, and the Pewes a foot above that;
A worke much gracing the Church,
but especially done for a ready and
more easie hearing. The charge of
these times rising to 600. pounds and
upwards.

Then (I say) trimmed and beauti-

before and since, to this present yeere
1633. The care and cost of the Pari-
shioners have beene still imployed in
the supplying and furnishing of it with
such things, as either for necessity or
beauty, their love to Gods house,
should finde wanting. Among other
things these, viz.
They have new raised their Chan-
cell, adding to that cost a Communi-
on Table, with a very faire frame about
it, they have made many new Pewes,
a faire Alabaster Font, and a Clocke:
a necessary thing, that in the memory
of man this Parish hath not had, nor
the eldest Parishioner ever heard of.
They have also in this Church (much
commending the Founders & Continu-
ers of it) at the lower end of the North
Ile, a faire Wainscot Presse full of good
Bookes, the workes of many learned
and reverend Divines, offering (at sea-
sonable and convenient times) the be-
nefit of reading, to any that shall bee
as ready to embrace it, as they and
their Maintainers to impart it.

ter & Co-heire of Sir Edmond Rowse
of the said County, Knight, which
Francis Warner was truly and line-
ally descended from the ancient and
generous Family of the Warners,
who possessed a place of their owne
name, at Warners hall in great Wal-

died without Issue, and made Fran-

Will, and principall Heire to his
estate; who out of his duty and af-
fection to the memory of his deare
Vncle, hath dedicated this Monu-
ment.

THe ancient Church belonging
to the Black-Fryers, London, was
(before the dissolution of Re-
ligious Houses by Henry the 8.) one

of

The Remaines.

of the most spacious and faire Chur-
ches in London: but the Friers being
put out, the Church (together with
other faire buildings) was utterly de-
molished. Therefore the Inhabitants
of the said Black-Fryers, London, fitted
an upper Roome, of 50. foot in length,
and 30. foot in breadth, for a publike
place of Divine worship. The char-
ges of purchasing and fitting the said
Roome for a Church, appeareth not
in any Record that we can finde.
In Anno 1597. when the Church
was empty, and no body in it, a great
part of the Roofe thereof fell downe,
whereupon the then Inhabitants being
about to repaire their said Church, ob-
tained of Sir George Moore Knight, so
much ground as enlarged their Church
with an Ile on the West, 50. foot in
length and 15. foot in breadth: for
which ground they built at their owne
cost a faire Ware-house under the said
Ile for the use of Sir Ierome Bows,
Knight, who then had the said ground
in lease, and also gave him 133. li.
The new building of their said Church
and Ile (beside the foresaid 133. li. gi-
ven to Sir Ierom Bows) cost 300. li.
18. shillings.
In Iune 1607. the Inhabitants of
the said Black-Fryers paid 120. li. to
Sir George Moore, for the purchase of
their Preachers house, their Church-yard,
their Church, and the Porch ap-
pertaining thereunto, together with
the right of Patronage of, in, and to
the said Church.
In Anno 1613. the Inhabitants of
the said Black-Fryers, purchased on the
South of their Church, so much hou-
sing as enlarged their Church afore-
said 36. foot in length and 54. foot
in bredth, the purchase whereof, toge-
ther with the Vault for burying, and
other Roomes under that part of the
Church, and the new building of all,
and making new Pewes, and Pulpit,
cost 1546. li. 6. shillings.
In Anno 1632. the Inhabitants of
the said Black-Fryers, purchased the
Roomes directly under the above men-
tioned upper Roome converted to a
Church, which said under Roomes
they purchased to repaire the Foun-
dation & Walls whereon the Church
stood, which Walls were very much
decayed. The Purchase whereof, and
repaire of Decayes, cost 500. li.
The summe of all bestowed upon
Black-Fryers Church, since the refor-
mation of Religion in England, amoun-
teth to 2600. pounds 4. shillings.

Hee was very liberall to the poore,
and in the time of the great Plague
1625. neglecting of his owne safety,
he abode constantly in this City to
provide for their reliefe, he did ma-

by his Will he left above 4000. li.

He dwelt in this Parish 31. yeeres, and

WEE cannot in this place

This Church needs no Repaire at all,

And for beauty it hath sufficient, be-
ing still supplied and furnished with
whatsoever the vertuous and religious
Guardians of it know fit, either for use
or ornament. Which while we speake
of, we cannot forget that especiall ad-
dition of beauty, Light; that Light,
that by pulling downe those houses
that stood before it, is plenteously de-
scended into it: Nor (with that) the
cost of the Parishioners, (having gai-
ned such a long wanted benefit) in
trimming and new glasing their Win-
dowes.
At that time also 1632. they pur-
chased at the lower end of the South

God knowing, and having ordai-
ned that which was best for her
pious soule, hath beene pleased to
take her from the miseries of this
vaine world, and to receive her soule
with his Saints in Heaven. As she
did professe in all the time that she
lived in the state of a Maid, and of
a Wife, to bee a true and obedient
child of God; even so shee did be-
have her selfe in her sicknesse, bea-
ring her affliction with a true Chri-
stian Patience, much delighting to
Reade, or to heare the Word of God
read unto her, hoping and trusting
to be saved by the onely Merits and
Passion of our Saviour Jesus Christ:
And recommending her Spirit into
the hands of Almighty God, shee
exchanged her mortall life for the
Immortall, the 4. of August 1630.

THe foundation of this now fa-
mously finished House of God,
was begun to be laid upon the
23. day of Iune, in the yeere of our
Lord God 1628.
The first Bricke, as also the first
Stone in this Foundation, was laid by
Master Martin Bond, of this Parish
Aldermans Deputy of the Ward, and
one of our City Captaines. The Bricke
was laid (as is aforesaid) the 23. of
Iune, and the Stone (a principall cor-
ner Stone) the 28. of Iuly following.
Many of the Parishioners (follow-
ing this worthy Leader) laid every
man his Stone, with which they layd
something else, which the Workemen
tooke up very thankfully.
On the backside of the North wall
of the old Church was a Cloister, the
breadth of it seven foot and above,
which Cloister, by the taking downe of
that wall, being taken into the Church,
gave it all its breadth to enlarge it.
In digging under this wall, there
was found the figure of halfe the face
of a man, cast in Lead, the Mould set-
ting likewise upon it this word, Comes.
Digging under the South Row of
Pillers, they found the scull of a man,
the thicknesse of which was three quar-
ters of an inch and better, measured by
many, and admired by all that have
seene it.
At the West end of this Church
adjoyning to the Steeple, stands a
Pillar of the old Church, as it stood
and was there erected: This Piller
(from the Basis or foot, to the Chapi-
ter or head, upon which the old Arch
was raised) being eighteene foot high,
and but three to bee seene above
ground, shewes the measure or height
to which the flore of this new Church
hath beene raised above that of the old,
which is, the hidden part of the Piller,
or the 15. foot of it buried.
This Structure, not of Bricke, but
built from the ground with the choi-
sest Freestone might be got, without,
within, and in every part of it supply-
ed, furnished, and inriched, with what-
soever might adde to its greatest grace
and lustre, was finished in the yeere of
our Lord God, 1630.
In this yeere (accounting from
March to March) upon the 16. day of
Ianuary, it was consecrated by the
right Reverend Father in God, Wil.
Lord Bishop of London, and upon the
same day (as on such it is usuall with
us) were the Sacraments of the Lords
Supper, and the Sacrament of Bap-
tisme administred.
In this Church the Pulpit and Com-
munion Table are pure Cedar and
(both) the gift of Master Iohn Dyke,
a Merchant, living in this Parish.
A very faire Gate built at the East
end of the South wall, was the gift of
William Avenen, Citizen and Gold-
smith of London, who died in Decem-
ber 1631.

This Table of Queene Elizabeth, one
of the fairest that I have seene in this
City, was the gift of one that is a stran-
ger to this Parish, at least to any to be
the bestower of it, he is yet conceal’d,
and still is desirous to be so.
That of that great number of great
and magnificent Benefactors, that joy-
ned to the making up of this great, and
(in our time) unparalleld piece of
worke, I have onely touched upon
these, may (no doubt) seeme strange;
there being none in this number, whose
liberall hand and heart deserves not a
golden Character. I confesse it. To
all that may bee said, my answer is
(briefly) this: Being doubtfull of get-
ting all, or all of those I might get, and
loth of great things to speake to little
purpose, I onely tooke these (that of-
fered themselves) by the way, leaving
the rest to the Register of the Giver of
their meanes to give: with whom all
good deeds are recorded, and (un-
doubtedly) shall be rewarded.

(situate in Little Eastcheape, on the
North side of the said Church, whose
house was burned downe, and in the
place thereof another built with
Bricke) was fired in the Steeple there-
of, being a Spire covered with Lead;
it was quenched, but not without great
paines and much danger to some per-
sons (who were not unrewarded by
the Parish) before any great hurt was
done to it by the fire, more then the
defacing of it, and other parts of the

was very old, much ruined and decay-

vent further danger, it was pulled
downe, and all the West end of the

Foundation laid, inlarged three foot
toward the East, and new built, not
without great charge to the Inhabi-
tants of the Parish, who were all wil-
ling and ready to contribute towards
the Rebuilding, Repairing, and Beau-
tifying of the house of God; and the
better to set forward the worke, the

themselves toward the charge at 198.

building the Steeple, and the Repai-
ring of the Church.

now standeth, the South wall toward
the Churchyard being much decayed,

And set them to thy actions,

Particular praises

A good mans Epitaph,

That ever made mans praise,

Sir Allen Cotton, Knight, and Alderman
of London, sometime Lord Maior of
this Honourable City, son of Ralph
Cotton
of Alkington, in the Parish of
Whitchurch, in the County of Salop,
Gentleman, was espoused unto Elli-
nor
, the Daughter of Edmond Moore,
Citizen and Draper of London, by
whom he had Issue seven Sons and
seven Daughters, and lived unto the
age of 70. yeeres, generally belo-
ved, and died the 24. of December,
1628. being the Eve of the celebra-
tion of our blessed Saviours Nativi-
ty, which sell out by Gods provi-
dence, to bee the day of his second
birth, and convoy to eternall blisse.
He left behind him three Sonnes,
Edmond, Iohn, and William, and two
Daughters; which sonnes, in a fili-
all expression of their duties, have
caused this Monument to be erected,
in memory of their deare deceased
Father.
When he left Earth, rich Bounty di’d,
Mild Courtesie gave place to Pride;
Soft Mercy to bright Iustice said,
O, Sister, we are both betraid;
White Innocence lay on the ground
By Truth, and wept at eithers wound.
The sonnes of Levi did lament,
Their Lamps wentout, their Oyle was spent;
Heaven hath his soule, and onely we
Spinne out our lives in misery.

And kilst not him, but kilst his friends.

When others good names dye

He posses’d Earth,

Wise to doe right,

His Charity was better
felt than knowne,
For when he gave,
there was no Trumpet blown.
What more can be compriz’d

To crowne a soule,

All his just praise

The true Wife of his worth

Her gracious Vertues

This Church, in the yeere 1606.
was so lamentably decayed and peri-
shed, that (in that great necessity of it)
they were constrained to pull it downe
to the ground, and from thence, with
what speed they could, with much
care and cost to rebuild it, which in the
yeeres of 1607. and 1608. was fini-
shed.

THis Church hath had no re-

(worthy any record or memo-

deed so many, that the many decayed
parts & places of it, call rather for a Re-
building, than a Repairing. Which is
(as I am told) now providing for; the
Parishioners purposing very shortly to
pull it all downe, and rebuild, enlarge,
and enrich it, with that beauty that be-
comes so great a worke, and the House

OF this Church we are certainly
informed, that from the yeere
of our Lord, 1622. to this pre-
sent 1633. there hath not beene a yeere
in the passage of which, there hath not
beene (in one part or another of it) a
great deale of money expended.
What was done in every particular
yeere, I doe not certainly know, but
what I could learne take thus:
In the yeere of our Lord 1620. the
Porch at the West end of the Church
was new built, which in the yere 1632.
was againe repaired and beautified.
In the yeere 1622. the inside of the
Church was new painted, richly and
very worthily beautified.
In the yeere 1624. the Gallery at the
lower end of the Church, was rebuilded,
very much enlarged, and beautified.
In the yeeres of our Lord 1625. and
1626. great cost was bestowed in Lead,
and in the Plumbers labour.
In the yeere 1628. the Steeple of this
Church, being formerly part of Stone,
and part of Timber, the upper part e-
specially Timber, being all ruined and
decayed, was pulled downe to the very
foundation, and a new re-builded of
Bricke and Free-stone, very richly and
fairely finished.
Also the East Ile, and some other
parts of this Church (very defective)
were repaired and beautified at the
cost and charge of the Parishioners.
The charge of this yeere amounting
to 698. pounds and upward.

and Inhabitants of this Precinct, in the
yeere of our Lord God, 1620. Sir Tho-

being then President,
and Master Thomas Iohnson Treasurer
of this Hospitall.
This enlargement was by the taking
in of a large Roome, that (before the
date above named) joyned upon the
head of the Chappell. This ground
adding to the length of it (all the full
breadth going with it) 24. foote and
better.
This Roome thus taken in, trim’d,
beautified, and consecrated, is now a
beautifull Chappell, it being before a
Roome empty, vast, rude, and unsight-
ly: though then, in the use, deserving a
faire commendation.
For then, that ground that is now a
Chancell to the Prisoners of the house,
was a Chappell, into which every Sab-
bath (through a bye or backward pas-
sage) they were brought from their se-
verall Lodgings, to heare divine Ser-
vice and Sermons.
So that then, and now, in that wor-
thy use, and this worthy alteration and
beauty, we may see the Pious and Re-

imployed, and applyed to things of
this excellent nature.

yet I may say for this Church,
that the eye of the yeerely Gardians of

that whensoever any part of it stands in
need of either or both, they carefully
and suddenly bestow it. An instance
of this thus followes:

In the yeere of our Lord, 1633. all
the ground through the Church, was

which, where before from the lower
end of the Church to the upper end, it

ascent or rising, they have made a faire
ascent at the beginning of the Chan-

where they give the Communion: fur-

IT is since this Church was repaired
20. yeeres, yet though so long, it
hath more of that beauty still, and
still remaines fresher and fairer than
many other Churches, that halfe so
much time hath not wrought upon.
And yet, as I am informed (which is
more to the businesse in hand) It is
shortly againe to bee repaired, richly
and very worthily beautified.

The comfortable farewell of a young
Infant, sighed out in his dying sick-
nesse, to his mournefull Parents.
Let not my Father greeve,
or Mother moane,
That I this wretched world
have soone forgone,
Better I dye
before I doe amisse,
Than live to sinne,
and be berest of blisse;
All I can now be charg’d with
at the Tribunall Throne,
Is sinne originall,
for actuall I have none:
And that I know
my Saviour with his blood
Hath washt away,
and made my badnesse good.
And cause I know (though
knowledge I have small)
That Iesus Christ did dye
to save us all,
I passe with joy, in Heaven
to meet my King,
With Angels and Archangels
there to sing.
Then Father mourne,
and Mother weepe no more,
I now dye rich, that might
have liv’d but poore;
For had I progrest
unto mans estate,
It is not certaine
what would be my sate:
Whether a Crosse, or
Blessing I should prove,
Or merit Parents
direfull hate, or love.
For oft you see, how youths
rebellious prankes
Make sonnes ingrate, to those
they owe most thankes:
And might not I have beene
amongst the number,
Of those that doe their
Parents states incumber?
Yes, yes, I might perhaps
have beene a slave,
And kil’d your hearts with care,
and dig’d your grave.
But now my silly Dove-like
soule doth part,
In peace of God,
and love of Parents heart;
Sweet Innocence, my shield,
I beare in hand,
To guard me towards
that most holy Land,
Where Parents both,
and Sister I shall see,

In memory of the Honourable, and

By this small Statue (Reader)
is but showne,
That she was buried here,
but hadst thou knowne
The Piety, and Vertues
of her minde,
Thou wouldst have said,
Why was she not enshri’nd?
Both Veres and Windsors
best blood fil’d her veines,
She matcht with Talbot,
yet their noble straines
Were farre below her Vertue,
in whose breast,
God had infus’d his graces
’bove the rest,
Of all her Sex, whose sacred
course of life,
Both in the State of Widow,
Maid, and Wife
For each she had beene,
though her latter dayes
Chaste widow-hood crown’d,
to her immortall praise,
Was so immaculate,
she deserves to be
The Crystall mirrour
to posterity.
More honour hast thou
by her buriall here,
Dunston, than to thee
chanc’d this many a yeere;
Earth from her Coffin
heave thy ponderous stones,
And for thy sacredst relique
keepe her bones:
Since, spite of envy,
it cannot be deni’d,
Saint-like she liv’d,
and like a Saint she di’d.

On the death of the Discreet and Ver-

ter of Thomas Croft, of Okley-Parke,
in the County of Salop, Esquire, and
Wife of Iohn Davies of Hereford, she
died on New-yeeres day, 1612.
Here lies her dust,
who in a span of life,
Compast the vertue
of the worthiest Wife:
If oddes therebe
(well measur’d) twill be found,
She more acquir’d;
so her bright stocke renown’d:
And to those Wives
that glory most doe gaine,
She was a mirrour
that no breath could staine.
Though she a Female were,
her judgement was,
To truest Masculines
a truer Glasse:
For she by Nature, Grace,
and Wisdome too,
Shew’d by a Woman,
what best men should doe
In their best actions:
for she acted nought
That came not from a grave
and gracious thought.
But Nature (though familiar,
yet most strange,
Shewing how much
she doth delight in change,
In thousand fashions
doth her selfe array)
Permits nought heere
to stand at constant stay.
And Time and Death
with her therein conspire,
Else had these Ashes still
held vitall fire.
But these just lines,
in Time and Deaths despight,
Shall leade all times
to doe her vertue right.

ment, and the day of death, than the day

HOw this Church, any thing
in or about it (either for ne-
cessity or beauty) hath from
time to time beene kept, supplyed, and
maintained, all men that know it know;
to the perpetuall credit and commends
of those worthy Gentlemen, to whom,
in their severall times and successi-
on, the charge of it hath beene com-
mitted.
But to leave this generall commends,
and come to some particulars, with
their times, but a little time past, wee
begin with the yeere 1623. In which
all the Roofe over the Chancell, was
on the outside repaired, and in the
inside very curiously clouded.
To the further grace and ornament
of this Chancell, there was added in
the same yeere, the cost of a very faire
Table of the Commandements, and
with these the Church (then) was tho-
rowout very worthily beautified.
In the yeeres of our Lord God, 1624.
and 1626. the two side Galleries were
built, both very faire and spacious.
In the yeere of our Lord, 1629. the
Steeple very much decayed, was repai-
red, all the foure Spires (standing in
foure Towers at the corners of it) taken
downe, with new and very substantiall
Timber-worke re-built, and with the
Lead new cast new covered; every one
of these Spires inlarged somewhat in
the compasse, a great deale in height,
but most in their stately, eminent, and
gracefull appearance.
In the midst of these, where there
was none before (gracing and being
graced by them) was a very faire Tur-
ret erected; the head of it (which
much overpeeres those Spires) covered
with Lead, as also the props that sup-
port it: This, and the Spires, having
every one a Crosse, with very faire
Vanes upon them.
The charge of all this I could not
certainly get, and would not uncertain-
ly speake it: But the greanesse of the
things speake the cost to be great, all
being the sole charge of the Parishio-
ners.

great necessity) were worthily contri-
ved and erected.
In the yeeres of our Lord God, 1621.
and 1622. it was againe in many parts
of it repaired; all the North side of it
(at once) strengthened and beautified,
with a substantiall and very artificiall
Rough-cast, the other side Plaistered
and Whited.
Among many rich and beautifull
things that have beene added to this
Church at divers times, and to seve-
rall parts and places, some of a generall
cost, and some of particular bounties
(for some reserved causes omitted) we
here only remember that extraordina-
ry faire and curious Table of the Com-
mandements, and the Screene at the
West doore, set up in the yeere of our
Lord God, 1618.
But passing all these, somewhat now
of that part of this Church above the
Chancell, that in former times was
called, Our Ladies Chappell.
It is now called, The new Chappell;
and indeed, though very old, it now
may be cal’d a new one, because newly
redeemed from such use and imploy-
ment, as in respect of that it was built
to, Divine and Religious duties, may
very well be branded, with the stile of
wretched, base, and unworthy, for that
that before this abuse, was (and is now)
a faire & beautifull Chappell, by those
that were then the Corporation (which
is a body consisting of 30. Vestry men,
sixe of those thirty, Churchwardens)
was leased and let out, and this House
of God made a Bake-house.
Two very faire doores, that from the
two side Iles of the Chancell of this
Church, and two that thorow the
head of the Chancell (as at this day
they doe againe) went into it, were
lath’t, daub’d, and dam d up: the faire
Pillars were ordinary posts, against
which they piled Billets and Bavens;
in this place they had their Ovens, in
that a Bolting-place, in that their
Kneading-trough, in another (I have
heard) a Hogs-trough; for the words
that were given mee were these, This
place have I knowne a Hog-stie, in a-
nother a Store-house, to store up their
hoorded Meale: and in all of it, some-
thing of this sordid kind & condition.

afore named, to one Gap in transcription. Reason: Omitted from the original text due to a printing or typesetting error.[…] Wyat, after him to one Gap in transcription.

The time of the continuance of it
in this kind, from the first letting of it
to Wyat, to the restoring of it againe to
the Church, was threescore and some
odde yeeres, in the yeere of our Lord
God 1624. for in this yeere the ruines
and blasted estate that the old Corpo-
ration sold it to, were by the Corpora-
tion of this time, repaired, renewed,
well, and very worthily beautified: the
charge of it for that yeere, with many
things done to it since, arising to two
hundred pounds.
This, as all the former Repaires, be-
ing the sole cost and charge of the Pa-
rishioners.
One Ile in this Chappell, was paved
at the onely cost of one Master Iohn
Hayman
, Taylor, and Merchantaylor,
in the yeere 1625.

beene imployed, both in Repaires and
Adornment.
And first we beginne with that great
costly repaire in the yeere of our Lord
God, 1608. at which time, upon sixe
and twenty foot of the Churchyard in
length, and twenty foot in breadth (ta-

Here lieth the body of Hippocrates de
Otthen
, Nobly descended from the
Noble Family of the Otthens, out
of Holsatia, Doctor of Physicke in
the Vniversity of Monutpelliers, in
France, and most worthily incorpo-
rated in the Vniversity of Oxford.
After his first comming into Eng-
land
with his Father (who was the
Emperours Physician, and sent for
over by Queene Elizabeth) he was
desired by the Earle of Lecester him-
selfe, to pertaine unto him, in whose
service (for many yeeres, both at
home, and abroad in the Low-coun-
tries, with his Lord) he performed
such worthy parts, as well in his
owne faculty, as being imployed in
other laudable services, that her Ma-
jesty and the State tooke especiall
note of his worth. After the decease
of the Earle, hee was in the same e-
steeme and regard with the Earle of
Essex, and by her Majesty comman-
ded to attend upon him in the wars
of France, and afterwards in his pro-
sperous Voyage to Cadiz. Retur-
ning home (hoping to retire him-
selfe to his owne Practice, and a
more private life) hee was againe
commanded to goe (as Physician in
service into Ireland) with the Lord
Montjoy (afterwards Earle of De-
vonshire)
her Majesties Leiutenant
in that Kingdome. But returning
againe into England with his Lord,
in the beginning of his Majesties
Reigne, he continued not long, but
went as Physician with the Earle of
Hartford, his Majesties Ambassa-
dour unto the Arch-Duke of Au-
stria
and Burgundi, in that Honou-
rable imployment: And so retur-
ning againe into England, hee spent
the residue of his yeeres with his
deare and most vertuous Wife, Mi-
stresse Dorothy Drew, daughter to
Master Roger Drew, of Densworth, in
Sussex, Esquire, in great blisse and
happinesse: And being a most zea-
lous and penitent Christian, full of
yeeres, and (unto his last gaspe) of
perfect Memory, hee ended his pil-
grimage here on earth, and with
alacrity of spirit surrendred his soule
into the hands of his Creator, the
13. of November 1611. For whose
love and memory, his late Wife
(the now Lady and Wife unto Sir
Stephen Thorneburst of Kent, the most
worthy and valerous Knight) hath
caused this Monument to bee ere-
cted, Amoris ergo P. P.

BEfore I speake of this new
Church, I must briefly say of
the old, that indeed it was very
old: and in the antiquity of it, stood
now still in danger of falling: that some
part of it did fall, foretelling the rest to
follow, if not speedily prevented, by
pulling it downe to Re-build it, which
after a diligent search, the necessity
found, was done.
For this new Church, it beganne to
be raised in the yeere of our Lord God,
1623. was finished 1625. and encom-
past with a faire bricke Wall in the
yeere 1631.
Which take more amply, in that
absolute delivery of it, that I finde en-
graven over the doore on the North
side of this Church, the words are
these:

The Remaines.

To the raising, finishing, and (in eve-
ry part of it) richly, and very excel-
lently beautifying of this great worke,
there were many good and great Be-
nefactors: The names of all, with their
particular gifts, my time gave not
leave to compasse: neither for many
of them, could any enquiry get them,
they desiring to bee conceald, and by
vertue of what they have done, obli-
ging those that know them, not to di-
vulge or reveale them.
For the rich and costly Glazing of
this Church, the Worke and Worke-
masters thus follow.
A very rich and beautifull Window in
the head of the Chancell, of foure
severall Panes or Parts: In the first,
the figure of Abraham sacrificing his
Sonne: in the second, Moses with
the Table of the Commandements:
in the third, the figure of the holy
Prophet David: in the fourth and
last, Salomon.
The inscription to the first is this:
Credidit Abraham Deo, & reputatum est
illi ad Iustitiam. Anno Dom. 1628.
Of the second is this:
Erat vir Moyses Mitissimus super omnes
homines qui morabantur in terra. 1628.
Of the third this:
Solum medium tutum. 1627.

A very faire Window on the North
side of the Chancell: two faire Fi-
gures in it; the one of the Virgin
Mary, with Christ in her armes;
the other of Mary Magdalen.
Vnder this Window lyeth buried, the
body of Mary Pill, of this Parish;
which Window was set up at the
charges of Mary Maudit, her daugh-
ter and Heire, 1629.
Vnder the first thefe Verses:
From Maries teares to Maries joy,
This Mary is translated:
And after threescore yeeres annoy,
In Heaven she is instated.
With this, she chose the better part,
Never to be repented;
And held her Saviour in herart,
Thus are her joyes augmented.
Vnder the other these:
This, sought her Saviour at his Tombe,
His feet with Teares bedewed,
That, bore our Saviour in her wombe,
Whereby our joyes renewed.
Then happy soule, thrice happy this,
Happily interessed;
In Maries Teares, and Maries blisse,
Rest thou for ever blessed.
A very faire Window, with the Kings
Armes in it, over the entrance

Over the great West doore, is a faire
Window, with the Carpenters
Armes, and a faire Coat
Armes close by it.
This Window hath no name, or o-
ther Inscription; It was (as I was told)
the gift of a Stranger.
One, that upon a day that they made
a Collection for it, being there, was
(among the rest) desired to bestow his
good will, hee answered, Hee had no
Money, but if the glasing of a Win-
dow, if they had any yet undisposed
of, wouldbe accepted of, he would bee
at the charge to doe it. The Collectors
giving him thankes, and shewing this
Window, he suddenly set a Glasier on
worke, and what he had promised hee
performed.
A very faire Window at the head of
the North Ile, bearing the figure of
Christ crucified as also (one on the

In the same Ile is a very faire Stone,
which hath beene beautified with

now of it is this:
Here lieth George Carew, the fourth son
of Sir Edmund Carew, &c. 1583.
In the South Ile
Eyes buried the body of Alexander

This Stone was laid by her Husband
Richard Barker, one of the Yeomen

THere hath beene within these
few yeeres a great sum of mony
expended upon this Chruch,
by the sad and lamentable accidents of
twice the fall of the Steeple. Spea-
king of which, I should say, the first in
such a yeere, such a moneth, such a day;
and as of that for the second: but my
Information (though given mee by a
very good friend) could by no meanes
make me so punctuall. Howsoever, it
was about the time afore dated; and
the second, within a little time after.
The first falling of this Steeple (or
part of it) was through the antiquity, or
length of time it had stood, without
any repaire or mending; for (as I have
beene certified) it hath had no cost, in
that kinde, bestowed upon it, within
the memory of any Parishioner living:
neither among their Records can they
finde any such thing mentioned.
The second fall (as some have su-
spected) was either by the ignorance
or dishonesty of the principall Work-
man, that for a certaine summe of mo-
ney (from the ruines of the first) had
undertaken to raise and rebuild it. Ig-
norance in not looking into the strength
of that, upon which hee was to reare
such a burthen; Or dishonesty, in
sleightly passing over (for the speedier
dispatch of his Taske) a weaknesse up-
on which he knew (or might suspect)
such an eminent danger to follow.
How just the suspicion, I know not,
but in the Re-building of this Steeple,
before it was fully finished (although
almost upon the end of that labour) it
fell, with the Bells, their Carriages and
Frames, beating a great part of the
Roofe downe before them: the weight
of all these together, bearing to the
ground two large Pillars of the South
Ile, a faire Gallery over against the
Pulpit, the Pulpit, all the Pewes, and
whatsoever was under or neere it.
But now (as of all the rest) let us
speake of building, repairing, and beau-
tifying, which briefly for this Chruch
we doe thus:
All those decayes and losses (excep-
ting the want of the Steeple which
(at the lower end of the South Ile) is
begun, and from the ground raised as
high as the roofe of the Church) are re-
covered and made whole againe: all
the Walls of it firme and faire; in the
South wall a faire new doore: The
Chruch, in the place of the old, furni-
shed with all things new, and is with-
out and within (notwithstanding there
is much still to doe) well and very wor-
thily beautified.
The

The Remaines.

The cost of all this amounting to (or
much upon) 1400. pounds.
It was thus finished in the yeere of
our Lord, 1627.
Vpon my very worthy Friend, Master
Iohn Weaver, a learned
Antiquary.
Weaver, who laboured
in a learned straine,
To make men long since dead
to live againe,
And with expence of Oyle,
and Inke, did watch,
From the Wormes mouth
the sleeping Course to snatch,
Hath by his industry
begot a way,
Death (who insidiates
all things) to betray,
Redeeming freely
by his care and cost,
Many a sad Herse, which time
long since gave lost;
And to forgotten dust
such spirit did give,
To make it in our
memories to live.
Where Death destroy’d
when he had power to save,
In that he did not seeke
to rob the Grave,
For where so e’re
a ruin’d Tombe he found,
His Pen hath built it
new out of the ground.
’Twixt Earth and Him
this interchange we finde,
Shee hath to him,
he bin to her like kinde,
Shee was his Mother,
he (agratefull Child)
Made her his Theme,
in a large worke compil’d
Of Funerall Reliques,
and brave Structures rear’d,
On such as seem’d unto her
most indear’d.
Alternately a Grave
to him she lent,
O’re which his Booke
remaines a Monument.

William Price, of Winchester, Esquire,
one of his Majesties most honoura-
ble Privy Chamber. She died the

Ye holy Angels,
and ye Powers of light,
The glad injoyers
of Gods glorious sight;
You that in faithfull
Abrahams bosome rest,
You have receiv’d
your sanctified Guest.
Faire Susan Price
hath blessed Heaven obtain’d,
And for her well run Race,
Gods glory gain’d,
Shining in Robes
of Immortality,
Contemnes the earth
and worldly vanity.
True Christian faith
indued her constant minde,
And unto her
the promise was assign’d.
Most honour’d be
her memory, outwasting
All Genealogies,
and everlasting.
Whilst therebe Elements,
Stars, Orbes, or Spheares,
Dayes Sunne, or Nights
Moone, to direct the yeeres,
The Heavens possesse her soule,
the World her Fame,
And faire example, her Vertues,
Worth, and Name:
What Nature, Goodnesse,
Institution, Fact,
Could heape to a perfection,
was her Act.
The Angels sing her glory,
who did call
Her sweet soule home
to its originall,
And now shees gone hence
for to passe the time
She ought her Husband,
in a better Clime.
There shall her Harvest
and her Summer be,
Where she shall never
any Winter see.
Then Price grieve you no more,
she lives in joy,
Wipe you your teares,
her teares are wip’d away.
The Epitaph.
Stay ere you passe,
lament, and fix your eyes
Vpon a worthy
Consorts obsequies.
Susan here lies, for beauty,
worth, and life,
Admir’d, the worthy
William Prices Wife.
Never was after death
one more desir’d,
Nor ever living
was one more admir’d.
A file of lasting praises
crownes her name,
Perpetuall glories
doe attend her fame:
Rich in all joyes, she
now hath chang’d her bed,
Ioyned in marryage
unto Christ her head.
Come, whosoever would
enjoy like state,
Endevour all her worth
to imitate.

Ladies, when you

Ther’s no content on earth,

And you shall once be
