CHURCH BRIEFS.



The following list of briefs from 1661 to 1699 is contained in the second
volume of the Registers. A brief is defined in the N. E. D. as "a letter patent
issued by the Sovereign as Head of the Church, licensing a collection in the
churches throughout England for a specified object of charity ; called also a
church brief or King's letter."

A quotation is there given from Pepys' Diary : —
"1661. June 30. To church, where we observe the trade of briefs is come now
up to so constant a course every Sunday that we resolve to give no more

Mr. Gage in his History of Thingoe Hundred, 1838, mentions the following which I
cannot see now.

1. Here lieth Christian Sach, the late wife of Thomas Sach, gent, of Great

Horringer, who was formerly the wife of William Lucas Esq., who died
in Sept. A.D. 1666, aged 79 years.

2. Hie jacet Lucy Chapman, aetatis 21 annorum, nuper uxor Henrici Chapman,

generosi, nupt : filia Gulielmi Lucas, armigeri. Quae dum vixit bona
fuit mulier testis est populus ; melior filia testes sunt parentes ; optima
uxor testis maritus : pictate nullae secunda testis est Deus.
This soul too rich a prize for mortal race,
Endew'd with nature and the gifts of grace,
Once view'd this world, and then in much disdain
Left this void earth and now in glory reigne.
Arms of Chapman impaling Lucas.

I have left out the words ^' Here lies'' or "In memory of," and have sometimes put
[died] instead of its longer equivalent. With such exceptions the inscriptions are given
exactly. Occasionally differences will be found between the tombstones and the Register, both
as to the age of the person buried and as to the year of burial. Owing to the foolish and
exaggerated use of thin strokes by stonecutters, the difference between 1 and 4 is sometimes
