Inscription:
Here lies enterred, close to the remains of his beloved wife ANABELLA CHRISTIANA, the body of the Rt. Hon(oura)ble. Sir EDWARD KNATCHBULL Bart., who departed this life May 24th 1849 aged 67 years. As a Magistrate, as a Member of the House of Commons, as a Minister of the Crown, he laboured assiduously in the discharge of his public duties; and in every relation of private life his loss must be deeply felt by his sorrowing family and friends. Sir Edward was twice married; by his first wife, ANABELLA CHRISTIANA, daughter of Sir JOHN HONEYWOOD Bart. of Evington, he had five sons and one daughter, of whom the eldest, NORTON JOSEPH, is the present Baronet. By his second wife, FANNY CATHERINE, daughter of EDWARD KNIGHT Esq. of Godmersham Park, he had five sons and four daughters. The survivors of whom have, by their father's desire, taken the name of Hugessen in addition to that of Knatchbull. Sir EDWARD's mother was MARY, daughter and co-heiress of WILLIAM WESTERN HUGESSON Esq., of PROVENDER . Her sister DOROTHEA, was the wife of the Rt. Hon. Sir JOSEPH BANKS Bart.. In the same vault repose the remains of Dame FANNY CATH. KNATCHBULL*, widow of the above by whom this monument was erected, and the others repaired and restored in 1850. She died December 24th 1882, aged 89 years.
