    In the old church at Bicton, which was taken down on the completion of the new church in 1851, was an elegant monument of Dennis Rolle, Esq., with effigies of himself and lady in statuary marble, richly habited. He died in 1638, aged 24, and was celebrated for his ready wit and the generosity of his disposition, and is noticed in a poetical epitaph written bv Dr. Fuller, author of ' The. Worthies.'
    The ruins of the former church at Bicton, of which little remains but the tower, has been converted into a mausoleum for the Rolles, and contains [in 1954] a magnificent marble tomb of Dennis Rolle (1638) and his wife and child, which Oliver suggests may be the work of Nicholas Stone. If so, it is the only known work of Stone in Devon.
