Inscription:
To the religious memory of Mrs. Philip[pa] Bridges, wife of Edward Bridges, Esq. and beloved daughter of Sir George Speke, Knight of the honourable order of the Bath, who died Dec. 6, 1628. Her age 34. Here under buryed lyeth, but lives above, A female Joseph for her father's love: Loving, and lov'd of her beloved mate, His care-away, and stay unto his state; Whom Winter's chill that all things else decays, Nipt off before the Autumn of her days. Seven buds she left behind her, fruits of grace, Are with her gone unto the heav'nly place; Where we, which now do part with grief, with joy shall meet, When God shall raise up us, and tread death under feet.
 
Note: Buried December 11, 1628. Mistress Philippa wife of Edward Bridges Armigeri. Her mural monument of white marble is on the south wall within the chancel.
