"A wall-monument, from the Southwark workshops, disfigured by inappropriate repainting; two kneeling figures on either side of a desk, in an aedicule, surmounted by a shield of Fermor (Argent, a fess sable between three lions’ heads gules) impaling Sable, a bend between two leopards’ masks or; another shield on the apron scraped away.

HIEROME THY IOYES ALL SHINE ON HIE

SED PERIJT PARS PARVA MEI, PARS MAXIMA VIVIT
VILIOR, ISTA IACET, SANCTIOR ILLA VIGET.
