This has been cut down to this section to enable students studying the recides at the time of the Restoration to view it in manageable chunks. None

Inscription

In the passage leading from the nave to the north aisle
in this church, is interred the body of Henry Marten,
one of the Judges who presided at the trial of Charles 1st
with the following Epitaph over him, written by himself:—

'Here Sept. 9th 1680, was buried
A true born Englishman.
Who, in Berkshire was well known
To love his country’s freedom like his own,
But being immured full twenty years,
Had time to write as doth appear.'
