8 WELLS CATHEDRAL.

NAVE.
From East to West.

On the brass lectern are four armorial shields ; on each side of the book rest are,
Erm., a lion ramp, collared. Crest, a dexter hand grasping a sword erect. Over the
crest this motto " God grant " for Creyghton. Below the shield this inscription :

" D r Eobert
CREYGHTON. Creyghton upon his returne from fifteene years

Exile w th o r Sovereigne Lord Kinge Charles y e 2 nd
Made Deane of Wells in y e yeare 1660, gave

this brazen
Deske w th Gods holy worde thereon to the saide
Cathedral Church."

In an ornamental scroll at the top are the arms of the See, on both sides, viz.,
a plain saltire surmounting a pastoral staff in pale, betw. two keys addorsed the hows
interlaced on the dexter, and a sivord erect on the sinister.

A large stone near the entrance to the choir has the matrix only of a brass for a
lady beneath a canopy, two shields and a label round the edge for the inscription.
The whole is of large size, and must have been a splendid example of a monumental
brass of the period. The style of the high mitred headdress points to the date
being about 1460.

A little further down is the stone pulpit erected by the direction of Bishop
Knight, with his arms, now much mutilated, cut on the front, viz., Per fess, in chief
a demi-eagle with two heads and sans wings issuing from a demi-rose conjoined to a
demi-sun in splendour in base. This is more fully described where it occurs in
coloured glass in the north choir aisle.

Near the pulpit, and on the south side of the nave, is the Chapel of St. Edmund
the Confessor, erected by Dr. Hugh Sugar, one of the executors of Bishop Beckyng-
ton ; on the interior are several shields, on which are repeated this coat, three
sugar loaves, and in chief a doctm^s cap, for Sugar. Collinson gives the coat as
Sa., three sugar loaves arg., and in chief a doctor's cap of the second. And on his
authority Papworth gives the coat, but it does not appear what authority Collinson
had for the colours. It is evident from the examples in the vicar's close, where an
initial f) takes the place of the cap, that the arms were originally a rebus or canting
coat on his name.

On the exterior cornice of this chapel are twelve shields, namely :

Sugar, as above ; twice.

A vase from which issue three lilies, all between two wings points downward ;
repeated twice.

(Vert), a cross flory (or), in dexter chief a demi-virgin with child ppr., for
Glastonbury Abbey.

The initials H. S. ; twice.

The five wounds ; twice.

A saltire betw., on the dexter two keys addorsed, the bows interlaced, and on the
sinister a sword erect ; twice. The deanery.

A saltire. The vicars.



MONUMENTAL INSCRIPTIONS AND HERALDRY. 9

Opposite to this chapel, and on the north side of the nave, is the chantry chapel
of Bishop Bubwith ; against the pillar at the west end is cut in high relief these
arms, az., a saltire surmounting a pastoral staff in pale or, betw., on the dexter two
keys addorsed, the lows interlaced, the first arg. the other of the second, and on the
sinister a sword of the third, hilt and pomel gold, imp. arg., afess eng. sa. betw. twelve
holly leaves vert, 4, 4, and 4, arranged in quadrangles. Being the arms of the See
impaling Bubwith. The shield is somewhat damaged, and the colours nearly gone,
but can be supplied from coloured glass put up by himself in the library he built
over the east cloister. This coat of Bubwith is not given by Burke or Papworth,
they call the charges "bubbles." The coat occurs frequently carved and in coloured
glass, so plainly that there cannot be the slightest doubt as to what the charges
really are.

On the floor of this chapel is the matrix of a brass, a demi-figure of a priest issuing
from an inscription plate ; also four shields, and fillet round the edge of the stone.

A modern brass is inscribed, "Nic. Bubwith, Ep. 1424."

Above the arches, about half way down the nave on the south side, is what
appears like the front of an altar tomb with three blank shields.

From a floorslab, on which the arms are well cut. The registers here and at St.
Cuthbert supply us with some additional facts, while in the latter church this
family are commemorated by a mural monument for Robert Kingston, M.A., Vicar
of St. Cuthbert and of the adjoining parish of Wookey, who died 4 Aug. 1748,
aged 43. The monument being erected by his daughter Elizabeth the 30th Dec. 1748.
Arms, Az., a cross betw. four leopards' 1 faces or. Crest, A leopard' 's face as in tiie arms.

A floorslab in the north transept commemorates Robert Kingston, Esq., son of
the Rev. Robert Kingston and Mary his wife. He was a native of this city and a
Major-General in the army, and died 24 Jan. 1819, aged 83. Also his sister Barbara
Kingston, who died 24 Dec. 1819, aged 75. Arms the same as on the mural, but
it is cut off from this slab, and is, like the inscription, nearly obliterated. Serel, in
his history of St. Cuthbert's Church, gives the dates incorrectly, and gives the
arms coloured as if from a mural monument that does not now exist, viz., Kingston
(the field sa. and the heads argent), imp. Erm., on a head set. three plates (? bezants,
for St. Aubyns).

Margaret Kingston, daughter of the Rev. Robert Kingston, died 7 Nov. 1805,
aged 67, and is recorded by a floorslab near that of her brother and sister.

The Robert Kingston commemorated with some of his family by the slab in the
Cathedral was a lawyer and Diocesan Registrar.
