      Jefferies' land, a history of Swindon and its environs. Edited with notes by Grace Toplis"
      ...At the east end, beneath the window, is the following inscription upon a stone let in even
      with the pavement : " Here lieth the body of Anne Vilett, wife of Thomas Vilett, gent, and daughter of Edmund Webb, of Rodbourne, Esqure, who departed this life December 6,
      1643. Her age 54. She had living of eight children only one." The arrangement of the inscription upon this stone, as well as upon the two following. Is peculiar, and at first sight hardly intelligible; the graver would seem to have been at a loss how to cut out what he was required without crowding, The stone close by has the following inscription : " Here lieth the body of Thomas Vilett, gent. Hee departed this life the 6th day of November
      1667 ; also Captn. John, son of ye Sd. Ths. Vilett, who died March ye 17, 1700, aged 70 years." The first part of this inscription is the same as that which Aubrey saw and copied when he visited this place two centuries since ; that relating to the son, Captain John, has been added since his time. The third stone is in memory of Thomas Vilett's second wife, whose memory is preserved in these words : *'Aug, 24, 1650, was buried Martha, second wife of Thomas Vilett, gent., and daughter of Thomas Goddard Esqure. She had three children livinge." All three of these stones, besides the inscriptions, have devices graven
      upon them.
