I



Took Notice of you, when visiting
our demolish'd Castle : Little can be
said of it now, except that it is magni-
ficent in its very Ruins : But as to our
Church, dedicated to St. Helen, which
you also internally view'd, I hope you
regarded the Place of a Chantry on the
North Side, (founded by Sir Guy Fair-
fax, to the Honour of the Holy Trinity,
St. Nicholas, &c) where there is an
Effigy of a Knight Templer ; other re-
markable Images of a noble Family, as
appears by one of those being adorn'd
with a Coronet ; and an antient In-
scription, engrav'd on Brass, affix'd
to a Stone, that is over the Bodies of
Sir Thomas Wytham, and his Lady ;

the Feoffees of which Knight founded
a Chantry within the Chapel of St.
Giles, of Cornborough, the Town where
the said Knight had in his Life-time
resided. Before the Altar lies buried
John, a Gentleman of the Family of
/ t, with Dorothea his Spouse ; and

another Couple, Thomas and Anne, of
the Daeres, who dy'd near the latter
End of the l6th Century. The Effi-
gies of them are portray'd in Brass ;
a-, also of Mrs. Mary, the most dear
Wife of Mr. Henry Hail, once of this
Parish, who dy'd the first of Septem-
ber, 1657. and is represented with her
little Son Edward in her Arms. I am,
Sir, a Well-Wisher, to all your Under-
takings ; and,

Tour humble 8ervant, iVc.
