From a floorslab, bearing a long cross between a pastoral staff and two shields,
one charged with modern coat used for the See ; the other, Erm., two chev. az. y
Bagot ; enamelled in their proper colours, on brass, the inscription being on a brass
fillet round the edge. On the steps of the cross is engraved, " Miserere mei Jesu."
The arms of Bagot here should have a mullet for difference, the Bishop being the
third son of Sir William Bagot, sixth Bart, and first Lord Bagot. Bishop Bagot
married Lady Harriet Villiers, youngest daughter of George Bussey, fourth Earl of
Jersey, by whom he had six sons and three daughters, whose numerous descendants
are given in Foster's ■ Peerage.'

For a quick penetration into

an unconfined benevolence

A lively and undistinguishing raillery

Without partiality and

Without asperity except

Where meanness or vice

Seemed to provoke correction.

Unshaken in the principles of his faith &

uninfluenced by vicious example.

In very early life

He was seized with a disorder

Judged incurable but which

With determined fortitude

and an habitual cheerfulness

He continued to support

Till death for which

He had long been prepared

Put a period to his sufferings

In the 31 st year of his age

and in the year of our Redemption 1764.

108 WELLS CATHEDRAL.

Lady Chapel.

ZOUCHE. In the window next the last one on south side are France and
England quarterly, much mutilated. In the second one to the west on
the north side there are two shields, one, Gu., ten bezants, Zouch, and Barry of six
or and vert, charged with fourteen lozenges (or perhaps roundels), 4, 4, 3, 2, 1,
counterchanged. This coat is very doubtful, and is probably made up, like a greater
part of these windows, of odd pieces of very old glass. The coat is not given by
Papworth, and looks unreal.

Frequently repeated in the encaustic tiles covering the floor are the following
coats, viz., Az., a crozier arg. in bend dexter, interlaced with two keys or in bend
sinister, imp. Arg., a chev. gu. betw. three gutte de sang ; also Or, three chev. gu.,
De Clare. The former has already been noticed as on the memorial of Dean Good-
enough. Why De Clare should be put here does not appear.



Chapel of St. Stephen.



DE HULLE. In this chapel was the Coombe Chantry, founded by Walter de
Hulle, Archdeacon of Bath and Sub-Dean of Wells 1342. He was
a benefactor of the Cathedral and Vicars-Choral ; Rector of St. Thomas 1325, and
of Beauchamp 1328.

BISHOP LEOFRIC. The recumbent effigy of a bishop inscribed, " Leveri-

BISHOP ETHELWYN. ous, Epc. Wellensis," for Bishop Leofric (1001) ; and
another, "Eilwinus, Epc. Wellen.," being for Bishop
Ethelwyn, who succeeded in 1013.



On the floor is the matrix of a large brass ; there is no sign of any shield
having formed part of it, and the matrix is much worn.
