[coat os arms and inscription from original tombstone]
Here lieth in the hope of a joyful Resurrection the Body of Colonel John Page of Bruton Parish Esquire
One of their Majesties Council in the Dominion of Virginia who departed this life on the 23rd of January in the year of our Lord 1691/2 Aged 65."

Original tombstone is now inside the church for safe keeping. It was replaced because it was broken and very worn.
-------
Col. Page was a prominent area landowner and the progenitor of a distinguished Virginia family. After Bruton Parish was established in 1674, Col. Page gave the land for the churchyard and made a generous donation toward the construction of a new church, which was completed in 1683. The foundation of that brick church is outlined in stone and located just north of the monument of Gov. Edward Nott.
