Hereford (son of William Brydges of Tiberton Court, by Ann, daughter and coheir

From the Bishop's transcripts of parish registers we find that Thomas Bridges,
Esq., and Mrs. Anna Rodney were married at Pilton 15 Oct. 1640 ; and the same
authority supplies the baptism of Mary, daughter of Mr. Richard Bridges, at the
Abbey Church of SS. Peter and Paul, Bath, on 14 Dec. 1624. While from the
marriage allegations at Wells we learn that Mr. Arthur Flower applied for a licence
for the marriage of William Merricke of Keynsham, merchant, and Hester Bridges
of Winterburne, co. Gloucester, spinster, which was granted 30 Nov. 1677, the
marriage to take place at Keynsham, Farmborough, Farleigh, or Compton Dando.

This inscription was doubtless formerly part of the large monument, having the
recumbent effigy of the Bishop, in the St. John Chapel. The statement in Burke's
'Commoners' (vol. iv., p. 55), on the authority of this monument, that Bishop
Creyghton was born at Dunkeld, is an error. The deduction from the inscription
appears to be that the Bishop's father, Thomas Crichton, was a younger son of
Crichton of Ruthven, but the arms being different, for Crichton of Ruthven bore,
Arg., a lion ramp, az., on a chief of the last three lozenges of the first ; while the
head of the family at that time, Viscount Frendraught, bore, Arg., a lion ramp, az.,
armed and langued gu., Ruthven being a cadet of Frendraught, but it is quite
possible the Bishop discontinued the chief and made the field ermine for difference.

By his wife Frances, daughter of William Walrond, Esq., he had : —

i. Robert, Canon of Wells, etc., who married and had issue : Alexander, died
1739 ; Catherine, married Rev. Henry Layng, Archdeacon of Wells ; Frances,
married Marshall Brydges ; and Margaret, mar. Rev. John Pope, Chancellor of
Wells.

The Bishop's will is dated 17 Nov. 1672, and was proved by his son Robert 31

TURNER. Near this place are deposited the remains

of the Venerable John Turner, A.M., Archdeacon of Taunton

and for the space of almost Forty year Canon Residentiary of this Cathedral

during which period he watched with singular constancy

over the performance of those solemn services to which it is consecrated.

His unaffected piety displayed itself in his pastoral character,

by the singleness of heart with which he discharged its important duties

within these walls, by the simple and artless eloquence with which he enforced

the Doctrines of Christianity in every relation of life, by the Purity, innocence

and active benevolence of his whole conduct.

In testimony of deep and affectionate veneration

his three surviving children have raised this monument to his memory.

Born May 31 st 1734. Died March 28 th 1817.

Beneath this stone are deposited the mortal remains
FRANKLAND. of the Rev d Roger Frankland, M.A.

of Muntham in Sussex, Canon of this Cathedral, Rector of Yartington

and Yicar of Dulverton both in this Diocese.

He was the youngest son of Ad 1 Sir Tho s Frankland Bart, of Thirkleby in Yorkshire,

was born on the 17 tb Nov r 1762, and married the 14 th of June 1792

Catherine youngest daughter of John, 9 th Lord Colville

of Culross in the kingdom of Scotland & by her he had twelve children.

To a highly cultivated & accomplished mind which shone forth

COLVILLE. even in his last days, he united

all the warm & benevolent feelings of the heart, his truly

gentlemanlike & engaging manners,

his ready and lively wit, added to his universal knowledge made him

a brilliant and cherished ornament to society.

In his intercourse with mankind, he was strictly honourable & upright in

the fulfilment of the relative duties of life.

None could exceed him for he was a good son, a tender faithful &

affectionate husband, a fond and indulgent parent.
Tho' blest with talents calculated to shine in public life he early

retired to the duties of a village pastor,

which he faithfully discharged for twenty six years beloved and

respected by all his parishioners.

The mild patience & resignation with which he supported his last illness

united to his affectionate & touching deportment

to his weeping and surrounding family must ever be present to their

recollection & endear his memory to their hearts.

Finally, beloved & regretted by all who knew him he departed this

life the 25 th of March 1826

and (to use his own words) in the full hope of the mercies of God thro'

the redemption of Jesus Christ.

This monument is erected & inscribed to his memory by his devoted wife

& deeply afflicted widow.
