Inscription

Roger Boyle, eldest son of Richard, Earl of Cork, born in Ireland, died in Kent, his father's native land, where he was being educated. He was a boy of singularly brilliant parts, and he paid for the precocity of his intellect by an early death. Thus he lost the succession to a rich patrimony upon earth and obtained an inheritance in heaven. (Translation from Latin.)
