3/40 Three tombchests on a
- continuous plinth, 1 metre
south of the chancel of
Church of St. Peter
Three C18 tombchests. The first and second have lost their limestone side
and end panels and the red brick fabric is exposed. The inscribed marble
slabs on the upper faces remain:
1. Mary, window of Thomas Wingfield (d.1682)
2. Elizabeth and Nathaniel Acton (d.1741(?) and 1745(?))
This slab bears a well-carved achievement.
3. Nathaniel Acton. Mid C18 (inscription complete but not clearly legible)
The limestone panels are richly carved, at one end with a skull and crossed
palm fronds, and at the other with festoons; both side panels have swags and a
fine central achievement. Compare Acton family floor slabs in chancel of the
adjacent church of St. Peter.
