Daughter of Sir Edward and Annabella Knatchbull.


In the vault beneath are deposited the remains of Mary Dorothea, wife of Edward Knight Esq of Chawton House in this parish, and eldest daughter of the Right Hon Sir Edward Knatchbull, Bart of Mersham Hatch in the County of Kent. She died in London on the 22nd day of February 1838, in the 31st year of her age, leaving issue five sons and two daughters. Her afflicted husband caused this tablet to be erected, to record his irreparable loss, and in the hope that her children when they read these lines, may call to mind, and endeavour to imitate the virtues of a good and affectionate mother. In the same sacred place are laid the remains of her eldest son Edward Lewkenor, who died at Tunbridge Wells on the 19th day of May 1838, aged 11 years. "The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord."
