Chapel of St. John.




BISHOP BERKELEY. An altar -tomb in the north-west corner of this chapel,
of coarse stone roughly cut, has the above arms repeated
on three shields on the front. The inscriptions are incised on the top, the hollows
being filled with lead or a black enamel. Round the edge runs the following
(the | line marks the corners) : —

Spiritus erupto | salvus Gilberto Novembre

carcere | principis hoc aetheres Barkle Crepat

annum dant usta salutis.

In the centre, lengthways, this : —

Vixi Videte s. praemium
83 Luxi redux quieascribus
pro captua gendo prsesulis
Septem per annos triplices.

Mr. James Parker of Oxford thus translates the inscription (that round the
edge) : " Behold thy soul Gilbert Berkley (now) safe, having broken its prison
bonds in the beginning of November, speaks from the sky (above)." These words
give the year of its safety. The words referred to being those in the centre, which
read, " I have lived, see my reward. I have shone returning to my rest. Having
held the office of Bishop for thrice seven years." The figures 83 are cut at the side
of the centre inscription, the words giving his age, 83, being Vixi, Luxi. Gilbert
Berkeley was a native of Norfolk, but descended from the ancient Gloucestershire
family, as the arms shew, the rose on the chevron being for difference.

CREYGHTON. Marble sarcophagus, on top of which is the recumbent alabaster
effigy of a bishop in full canonicals. On the front are three shields,
viz., first the Bishopric, Az., a saltire surmounting a pastoral staff or, cantoned on
the dexter by two keys addorsed the bows interlaced, on the sinister a sword (arg.) ;
second, Erm., a lion ramp, (az.), crest, a cubit arm holding a dagger erect (all ppr.),
Creyghton ; third, (Az.) a saltire (per saltire and quarterly counter changed arg.
and or). At the end of the tomb, Per pale the dexter as the last, the sinister
Creyghton as above, over the shield a bishop's mitre. This commemorates Bishop
Creyghton, D.D. There was formerly a Latin epitaph, now in the south cloister,
describing him to have been born at Dunkeld, in Scotland, and descended through
his father from the ancient Lords of Ruthven, and through his mother Margaret
Stuart from the latter illustrious family. The Bishop married Frances, daughter of
William Walrond, Esq., of Sea in Ilminster, Somerset. The effigy is said to be a
likeness of the Prelate, but the monument has been evidently partly destroyed, and
no colours now remain on the shields still on it. In 1637 he was made Dean of
St. Burian in Cornwall, but was deposed on the eve of the Civil "War, from which
he was a great sufferer. He went into exile with Charles II., whose chaplain he
was for fifteen years ; on whose return he was made Dean of Wells, and afterwards
Bishop (19 June 1670, being then aged 77), which office he held until his death,
21 Nov. 1672. There was formerly a mural monument to the memory of the
Bishop's widow, with her arms, near that of her husband, but it has been removed
into the cloisters.

DE MIDDLETON Between the memorials of Bishop Berkeley and Bishop
OR MILTON. Creyghton, under the north window, is the recumbent

effigy of John de Middleton or Milton, Chancellor in 1337,
from whom this is sometimes called Milton Chapel. It is without inscription.

Robert Creyghton, A.M.

Died 18 Dec. 1732, aged 60.

(Floorslab.)

He was the second son of John, first Lord Poulett of Hinton St. George, by his
wife Elizabeth, daughter and coheir of Christopher Ken of Ken Court, Somerset,
Esq., and married Catherine, daughter of Dr. Robert Creyghton, Bishop of Bath
and Wells. Both he and his wife are named in Bishop Creyghton's will (dated
1672), who bequeaths to his daughter Katherine Poulett a ring given to him by
the Queen of Sweden. Katherine Poulett is also mentioned in the will of her
mother Frances Creyghton. The will of Francis Poulett, in which he is styled " of
Wells, Esq.," dated 6 Sept. 1679, and proved 11 Feb. 1687 (P.P.C., 21 Exton),
leaves all he has to his wife Catherine Poulett. Administration to the effects of
Catherine Poulett, late of the Liberty of St. Andrew, Wells, widow, was granted to



MONUMENTAL INSCRIPTIONS AND HERALDRY. 113

her brother Robert Creyghton, D.D., on 9 Nov. 1694. Among the parish papers
of St. Cuthbert's, Wells, are two with the seal and signature of the above Francis
Poulett as a Justice of the Peace, one dated 1G87. One has these arms on the seal,
(Sa.), three swords in pile points in base (arg., hilts and pomels or), in chief a mullet
for difference. Crest, An arm emb. in armour, the hand grasping a sword, all ppr.
Supporters, On the dexter a ivild man ivreathed about the middle and temples with oaJc-
leaves, on the sinister a woman also ivreathed with oak, all ppr. Motto, Gardez le
fog. The supporters being those of his father Lord Poulett, the mullet should have
been a crescent, he being the second son. The other seal is more correct, giving
the same arms and crest, only with a crescent instead of a mullet for his difference,
and omitting the supporters, to which he was not entitled. The document bears
date 1686.

On the floor of this chapel, beside the memorial stone above, are a number
of encaustic tiles. Some of them are on the edge of the raised part where the altar
originally stood, the rest on floor near the Berkeley tomb. The following are the
only armorial shields, the same coats being repeated several times. The other tiles
are only ornamental devices. In all cases the colours of the tiles are not to be
considered.

The coats are : 1, Three chevrons, doubtless De Clare {Or, three chcvs. gu.). In
the Cathedral MSS. two Canons of this name are mentioned, Canon Roger de Clare
in 1284, and Canon H. de Clare in 1292.



116 WELLS CATHEDRAL.

2, Arg., a lion ramp, (gu.), crowned (or), iviihin a lord, (sa.) bezantee. This
is the coat of Richard Plantagenet, second son of King John, created Earl of
Cornwall, crowned King of the Romans 27 May 1257, and died in 1271. He
married first Isabel, third daughter of William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke, and
widow of Gilbert de Clare, Earl of Gloucester. His son Edmund, Earl of Cornwall,
married Margaret, daughter of Richard de Clare, Earl of Gloucester and Hertford,
from whom he was divorced 22 Edward I. On the tile the lion is incorrectly turned
to the sinister.

3, Cheeky (or and az.), Warren. In one case this coat has a castle of three
towers over it, in the other the space on each side of the lower part of the shield is
filled by a like castle. The family of St. Barbe of South Brent (now Brent Knole),
not very far off, bore, Chequy arg. and sa.; and John St. Barbe was Sheriff of
Somerset and Dorset in 1460, but that date is much too late for the tiles, nor
does there appear any reason to assign the tile to that family. The same arms
accompanied by the castle is found at Cleeve Abbey. This coat was used by the
descendants of Hamelin Plantagenet (natural son of Geoffry Plantagenet, Earl
of Anjou, consequently half-brother to King Henry II.) by his marriage with
Isabel, daughter and heir of William de Warren, Earl Warren and Surrey.
His son William, Earl Warren and Surrey, married first Maud, daughter of the
Earl of Arundell, and secondly Maud, daughter of William Marshall, Earl of
Pembroke, by whom he had a daughter Isabel, married to Hugh, Earl of Arundell,
and a son John, who succeeded him as fourth Earl, and married Alice, daughter of
Hugh le Brun, Comte de la Marche, half-sister by her mother to King Henry III.,
and to Richard, Earl of Cornwall, above.

4, (Gu.) three lions pass.-gard. in pale (or), the arms of King Henry III.

5, Six fleurs-de-lys. Several families bore these arms, with the colours
different, but none of them can be identified as connected with Wells at the
date of the tiles, viz., Mortymer, Darley, Ireland, Payferer or Peyfere, and
Redesham.

6, A chev. betw. three eagles displ, and on a chief a rose betw. two lozenges.
Anthony a Wood mentions this coat as cut in the stone roof of a seat in Bath
Abbey, and says it was made, he conceives, by Prior William Byrd. No ordinary
of arms gives a coat like this for Byrd. Robert Fayery, gent., Portcullis Pursuivant
of Arms, at the commencement of Edward VI. 's reign bore, Per pals or and az., a
chev. behv. three eagles displ., all counter changed, on a chief gu. as many lozenges erm.
The coat is still in the roof of Bath Abbey, over the chancel on south side and in
the north aisle, east of the organ, thus painted, Sa., a chev. arg. behv. three eagles
displ. or, on a chief of the last a rose inter two lozenges gu., and commemorates
some benefactor to the fabric of both churches whose identity remains to be
discovered. Unless, as seems most probable, it is the coat of Robert Fayremay,
one of the executors of the will of Dean Husee, who was living in 1307. The tile
here and stone shield at Bath both represent the same person.

7, A cross, the ends terminating in annulets, within each a cross. This cannot
be identified as any coat, unless it was the coat of Bishop William de Marchia, and
is a modification of the coat, Arg., a cross fourchee gu., assigned in a roll of
arms circa 1240-5 to De la Marche. This shield also occurs cut in stone in the
roof of Bath Abbey Church.

8, A sivord in bend dexter interlaced with hvo keys addorsed in bend sinister,
Bath Abbey.

9, Three bars and a canton. (Arg., three bars and a canton sa., Braunche.) A Sir
Nicholas Braunch was party with the Dean and Chapter and Sir John de Acton
of the one part to an indenture relating to land at Stathmore, 4 Edward II. (1304).
Vide Cath. MSS. These dates point to the commencement of the fourteenth
century as the period at which the tiles were made.

These are the only armorial tiles; some are repeated, and there are others
with only ornamental designs. Several have a tower and also a double-headed
eagle displayed without being on a shield, which were the arms of Eleanor of
Castile, first wife of King Edward I., and to those of Anne of Austria, wife of
King Richard II. These remains shew that there formerly existed a much greater
quantity of this beautiful paving, and we lament the loss of a great deal of historic
interest, commemorating benefactors and the ramifications of family connections and
influence. Among these we may venture to surmise were the arms of the Berkeleys,
long a powerful family in Gloucestershire and Somerset, and the munificent founders
of the Abbey of St. Augustine at Bristol, in whose church many of them lie buried,
and, as we shall see by the pedigree, closely connected with the families whose arms
are on the titles, and with Thomas Holland, Earl of Kent, whose arms are in
a window of the South Transept, above the monument of the Viscountess de Lisle,
whose husband was also descended from them, which connection is more clearly
shewn by the accompanying tabular pedigree.
