798-1/26/1748 Tomb of Lady Elizabeth Norton in St
John's Churchyard


Table tomb to Lady Elizabeth Norton, died 1715. A stone slab
on 6 arcaded square columns, with ringed capitals and large
bases. A very well preserved example of a type unusual in
London churchyards, to a daughter of the Earl of Gainsborough.
The inscription is still legible: 'her virtues appeared in
every part of her life, her humility in her grave, which she
chose in this place'.
