In this bless'd Pile, amid whose favouring gloom

Fancy still loves to guard her votarys Tomb,

Shall I withhold what all the virtues claim

The sacred tribute to a Father's name 1

And yet bless'd Saint, The skill alone was thine

To breath with truth the tributary line ;

The mem'ry of departed worth to save

And snatch the fading laurel from the grave

And oh, my Sisters : peaceful be your rest

Once more reposing on a Father's breast ;

You whom he lov'd, whose notes, so lost, so dear

Would sometimes wildly float upon his ear

As the soft Lyre he touched with mournful grace

And recollection's tear bedewed his face.



170 WELLS CATHEDRAL.

Yes, most belov'd, If every grateful care
To sooth his hours, bis every wish to share.
If the fond mother, and the tender wife
Could add fresh comfort to his Eve of Life ;
If youth, if beauty, eloquence could charm,
Genius delight him, & affection warm,
Yours was the pleasing task from day to day
Whilst heav'n approv'd and virtue led the way.

This stone and the one before it are for the most part now obliterated, the
letters being only painted on, and that having peeled off no legible trace remains.
This family claim descent from the ancient Lancashire family of Whalley of Whalley.

Whalley, D.D., by Mary, daughter of the Rev. Francis Squire, Chancellor of Wells.
He was born in 1748 and married Elizabeth Frances, daughter of the Rev. John
Paine, Canon of Wells ; she died in 1795, aged 40. He died in 1817, leaving a son
Richard Whalley, who married Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Fordway, Esq., of
Wells, and dying in 1830, aged 51, left issue 1, Richard, in holy orders ; 2, John ;
3, Elizabeth ; 4, Mary.

According to Burke's ' Commoners ' the arms of this family are, Arg., three
whales' heads erased and erect sa., on a canton of the second a mascle of the first.
Crest, A whale's head as in the arms, thereon a mascle.

There is the figure of a female weeping over an urn in relief. The arms, Sa.,
three hunting horns arg., oetw. them a cinquefoil or, are those of Dodington, with
the addition of a cinquefoil, which was doubtless originally a mullet, a difference of
a third son. The coat was derived evidently from a Dodington, having been
married to a Davis, a daughter of which family had married a Sherston.

Dodington mentioned in the inscription was the second daughter of Christopher
Dodington.

This is a large monument, and is the last on the east side of the cloister, but
as the monuments are not in their original place it appears as well to give it here,
following others of the same family. It is adorned with two nude infant boys, well
sculptured.



The family of Sherston, like that of Bisse and some others, was at an early
period connected with the clothworking industry, and although they did not enter
a pedigree in either of the Heraldic Visitations of Somerset, the name occurs in the
neighbourhood of Bath in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Mary, daughter
of William Sherston of Bath, was the second wife of Thomas Pryn of Swanswick,
and had remarried before 1623 to Edward Capell of the same place ; and Margaret,
daughter of ... . Sherston of Bath, was married to John Clarke of Bristol, mer-
chant, before 1570.

From Anthony a Wood's MSS. we learn the following: Peter Sherston of
Bath, with Walter Chapman and Thomas Wist, paid in 1603 money they had
given and collected for the repairs of Bath Abbey. William Sherston, Alderman,
and eight times Mayor of Bath, bequeathed £100 by annual instalments of 40s.
out of the parsonage of Lyncombe. On the east wall of the chancel of Bath
Abbey was formerly a monument to William Sherston, who died 26 Aug. 1621,
with an epitaph, but no arms.

They have used for arms a stork or heron standing on its nest, as on the monu-
ment of Dodington Sherston, and this coat is also cut on a floorslab in Bath Abbey,
impaled by Bushell, but the inscription is unfortunately gone. James Bussell
married Mary Sherston, their daughter Mary being born in 1707. They have
also used a chevron between three like birds, but these arms were never allowed,
granted, or confirmed to them. After inheriting the estates of the Davis family,
Peter Sherston applied for and obtained a grant of the arms granted to his
maternal great-uncle Peter Davis ; itself a most singular grant, for it was the
coat of Dodington of Dodington, which neither family in any way represented,
with the small difference of a cinquefoil in the centre. The grant shews the
poor heraldic knowledge and taste then existing even at Heralds' College itself,
and is all the more singular, since we find a John Davis of Wells sealing
documents 1698 as a Justice of Peace with his arms (Gu.), a griffin segreant
(or) ; Crest, A griffin as in the arms ; whom there is no reason to doubt was
the father of Jane, wife of William Sherston. This is further strengthened
by the fact that the will of Matthew Baron of Milton in St. Cuthbert's parish,
dated 1720, is witnessed by P. Davis, and sealed with the same arms and crest,
the griffin segreant. The grant should have been the heron coat, with some
addition, quartering the griffin of Davis. That this Welsh family should have
settled in Wells is by no means strange, being the same as Bees Davis, who married
the heiress of Maurice Rodney. Nevertheless this differenced coat of Dodington is
now the lawfully recognised coat of Sherston. The grant, which by the courtesy
of the family we are able to give, is as follows : —

TO all and Singular to whom these presents shall come, Sir Isaac Heard Knight
Garter Principal King of Arms, and Thomas Lock, Esquire, Clarenceux King
of Arms of the South, East and West parts of England from the river Trent south-
ward, send greeting. ®2&f)er£ as Peter Sherston of the City of Wells in the County
of Somerset Esquire hath represented unto the most noble Charles Duke of Norfolk
Earl Marshal and Hereditary Marshal of England, that his maternal great uncle
Peter Davis of Wells aforesaid Esquire obtained a Patent of Arms under the Hand
and Seals of John Anstis Esq. Garter Principal King of Arms and Stephen Martin
Leake Esq. Clarenceux King of Arms, bearing date the sixth day of June 1745 to
him and his descendants That the said Peter Davis left issue only two sons both of
whom dying unmarried the armorial ensigns granted in the said Patent became
extinct, and the said Peter Sherston became the heir general of that Family. He
is therefore desirous out of respect to the said family of Davis of bearing the arms
contained in the Patent aforesaid, and hath requested the favour of his Grace's
Warrent to the Kings of Arms concerned for their confirming the same to him and
his Descendants according to the Laws of Arms. And forasmuch as his Grace did
by Warrent under his Hand and Seal bearing date the sixteenth day of May instant,
authorize and direct us to confirm such arms, accordingly, UttOU) ge tfytVtfOtt
that We the said Garter and Clarenceux in pursuance of the consent of the said
Earl Marshal and by virtue of the Letters Patent of our several offices to each of us
respectively granted under the Great Seal of Great Britain do by these Presents

It is strange the Probate Registry at Wells gives so little help in the way of
Sherston wills. The wills of Isabella Sheathstone of Glastonbury, 1680, and William
Sherston of Oharlecombe, 1733, are no good : that of Peter Sherston of Bath does
little more ; it is dated 30 Oct. 1662, calls himself of Bath, clothier; names his
dwelling house, his fuller's mills, his mill called Monk's mill, his brother John
Sherston, brother William Sherston, brother Arthur Sherston, brother Thomas
Sherston ; sisters Mary, Elizabeth, and Sarah Sherston ; cousin Arthur Sherston, and
kinsman Thomas Neild of Westeaton ; proved at Wells 18 Dec. 1662.

The accompanying pedigree is compiled from registers, monuments, and family
information.

The following register extracts may also be interesting, though they could not
be placed in the pedigree.
