      Lydiard Tregize Church:
      Near by, on the north wall, at a considerable elevation. Is a monument to another St. John and his lady, dated 1633.^ The figures here of black marble, supporting an arch and entablature, with several figures and armorial bearings. On the entablature is the following inscription : - " D. S. " Johannes St. John Miles et Baronettus, annum agens XLIX um, mortalitatis suae memor H. M. M. P. C. Anno M.D.C.XXXIIII et sibi et Uxoribus suis Annae sc. et Mar- garettag. Anna Filia fuit Th. Leyghton Eq. Auae, ex Eliz. Conjuge Gentis Knowleisae, et Reginae Elizabeth setam virtutis quam cognationis ergo in Deliciis. Vixit annos XXXVII eximiis animi et corporis et gratiae muneribus datata, rarum virtutis et pietatis exemplum ; XIII Liberorum superstitium mater, tandem arumnosis ultimi puerperii agonibus diu confl.ictata et demum victa, fugit in coelum XIII Cal. Octob. M.D.C.XXVIII. - Margaretta Filia fuit Gul. Whitmor, Armig., de Apley, Provinciae Salop. Vivit LVIII um agens annum, virtutis laude spectabilis et bonis operibus intenta ; in istud hujus familiae Requiet- orium, suo tempore (ni aliter ipsa olim statuerit), aggre- ganda." - (Britton's Beauties of Wiltshire.)

      The inscription reads: “Anne was the daughter of Thomas Leighton, Knight, by his wife Elizabeth of the Knowles family and of the kindred of Queen Elizabeth, as blessed in character as in connection. She lived for thirty seven years, endowed with noble gifts of mind, body, and manner, a rare example of virtue and piety; she was the mother of thirteen surviving children; in the end, long worn down by the painful agonies of her last confinement and at last overcome, she fled to heaven on the 19th September, 1628.”
