" 1609, February 2, M 1 * Clarke wife of M r Clarke, the Proctter, buried."
Will of J. Bolton.
About this period there was a family of the name of Bolton existing in the
county, as appears by the Will of John Bolton, dated 16 August 1546, proved at
Taunton 15 September 1546. In it he desires to be buried in the Church of St.
James's, Taunton ; leaves bequests to the Altars of our Lady St. Katherine and
Holy Cross in that Church, and to the Church of St. Andrew at Wells. Names his
mother Mow u Bolton ; brother John Bolton ; sister Alice Bolton ; dau. Isabell
Bolton ; wife Johan, and the child she goeth with ; Gostly father John Moreys.
Witness, Sir John Burgon, curate. Although this throws no direct light on the
question, it is an indication as to the family of Tho. Clarke's wife.
Will of W. Clarke.
William Clarke of Wookey, yeoman, will dated 14 June 1709 ; proved at Wells
19 Nov. 1709. Names s. William Clarke ; goods at Lovington ; two grandchildren
William and Christiana Boulting ; s. Richard Clarke ; lands in the Manor of
Northload ; dau. Susanna. Seal, W. C.

Will of R. Clarke.
Richard Clarke of Wookey, miller. Names house and fifteen acres of land more
or less at Priddy ; three sons Thomas Clarke, Richard Clarke, and John Clarke ;
their uncle John Stott ; their grandfather Thomas Stott, deceased ; dau. Betty
Clerke ; Mary Marchant dau. of the late Rose Marchant of Wookey, deceased ;
house and mill at Wookey. Witnesses, John Stott and John Ghitch. Seal, (Gu.),
on a fess betw. three boars' heads (arg.) a lion pass. (sa.). Crest, A boar's head as
in the arms, apparently used by John Gutch.
Among the papers of St. Cuthbert Parish is one dated 23 June 1708, signed by
Edward Clarke as a J.P., the arms on the seal being, Two bars and in chief three
WINDOWS IN THE NORTH AISLE OP CHOIR.
In the second window from the east end of this aisle are three shields, viz. : —
1, Or, two bars az., in chief three escallop shells gules, over the shield a bishop's
mitre, Bishop John Clark. This shield appears to be of glass, contemporary with
Bishop Clark. These arms are ou the tomb of Thomas Clark 1555 at Wookey, and
on a monument in St. Cuthbert's dated 1587. The same coat is ascribed to Clark
of Shipley (sic, probably Shipham near Winscombe, which belonged to the Bishops of
Bath and Wells) by Burke, etc., who also give for the Bishop the same coat, adding
a horse's head, as mentioned more fully in the account of the shields in the Common
Hall of the Vicars.
2, Az., a saltire or. The glass of the saltire looks very old, but the field is
undoubtedly new glass. Most likely the shield contained the correct arms of the
See, as still in the opposite aisle, but being broken this was a cheap way of
3, Per fess or and arg., in chief a demi-rose gu. conjoined to a demi-sun in base
or, from the top of the rose a demi imperial eagle sans wings sa. Burke gives as
granted 14 July 1514 to William Knight, Prothonotary of the Apostolical See, and
Ambassador from King Henry VIII. to Maximilian, and afterwards Bishop of
Bath and Wells, this coat, Per fess or and gu., an eagle with tivo heads displayed sa.,
having on its breast a demi-rose and a demi-sun conjoined into one counter changed of
the field. This blazon is not very clear, the coat is evidently that in the window,
only that the red of the glass has faded, a fact which will be noticed more fully in
the next window. The seal of Bishop Knight and the pulpit in the nave which
was built \£or his monument, and beneath which he lies, have the same arms as in
the window, no colours being shewn.
In the next window, the third from the east end of this aisle, are three more
shields : —
1, Arg., gutte' d'or, on a chief or an annulet gu. betw. two leopards' faces az.
langued of the first. The annulet looks more like a torteaux with a hole in the
middle. This coat was originally, no doubt, Gu., gutte d'or, on a chief of the last a
torteaux charged with a leopard's face of the second betw. two other leopards' faces az.
This coat is not given by Papworth, and it very probably belongs to Dean

Woleman, though the only thing that connects him with it is the inscription at the
foot of the window. Among fragments in one of the other windows are two torteaux
charged with a leopard's face gold, no doubt belonging to two examples of this
2, Quarterly France and England, within the garter, the garter has been patched,
and there are remains of supporters ; on the sinister is part of a dragon or, winged
vert ; the arms of Henry VIII. The dragon should be gules, and on the dexter
side. It is worthy of note here, as the royal arms are so well known and indisput-
able, that the field is quite clear glass, the red in both quarters having completely
faded away. This is also the case in the next shield, in both the coats of Knight the
red having completely gone. An example of the Courtenay arms at Sheviock in
Cornwall has the three torteaux quite colourless, while the yellow and blue remain.
It would appear that old glass-workers sometimes used a colour that was not
permanent, or used a thin coating of ruby glass, which was cut away when small
charges had to be shewn ; such coating in some cases becoming detached by the
action of air and weather in course of time, left clear glass where red ought to be ;
and this must always be borne in mind when viewing a shield which has clear
glass where colour should be, even if there are traces of diapering over the glass.
3, Knight as in the previous window.
At the foot of the window is this inscription evidently not perfect : —
Ricarolus Woleman hugus ecclesie .... deo. opt. . . mar. . . 1537.
Richard Woleman, L.L.D., appointed Dean of Wells in 1529, and died 1537,
being buried in the cloister of St. Stephen's Chapel, Westminster.
KEN. The fourth window from the East is modern, put up in memory of
Bishop Ken, chiefly by the exertions of Dean Plump tre, the learned
author of an exhaustive life of that prelate. It contains, with Scripture scenes, the full
length portraiture of the Bishop ; beneath him this coat, viz., Az., a saltire per saltire
and quarterly counterchanged arg. and or, cantoned ivith, on the dexter two keys
addorsed the bows interlaced, on the sinister a sword erect, all of the second; imp. Erm.,
three crescents gu. This being no doubt intended for the See imp. Ken ; but in the
coat for the See the pastoral staff is omitted, and the saltire made incorrectly of two
metals instead of plain gold. Round the figure this legend, " Pastor bonus animam
pro ovibus," and at the foot of the window, " In piam memoriam viri Sanctissimi
delectissimi Thomas Ken,S.T.P., olim Bathon et Wellen episcopi, N. 1637, ob. 1711."
JENKYNS. The stone Pulpit given by Dean Jenkyns has this inscription
running round the upper part, "Deo dedicaverunt Ricardus
Jenkyns, S.T.P., Decanus Wellensis et Veritas uxor ejus, A.S., mdcccliii." On the
side steps of the pulpit, but in the North Aisle, are two shields, one with the arms of
Jenkyns, the other Grove, as already described.
On the floor near the Pulpit is a brass with this inscription
