    Buried beside his father "under a faire marble stone, thus sometime engraven but now quite taken away for the gain of the brasse". The following was the epitaph:
    Thomas Knolles lyeth undre this ston
    And his wyff Isabell, flesh and bone;
    They weren togeder nyntene yere,
    And x chyldren they had in fere.
    His Fader and he to this Chyrch
    Many good dedys they did wyrch.
    Example by him ye may see
    That this world is but vanitie;
    For, wheder he be smal or gret, All sall turne to wormy mete.
    This seyd Thomas was leyd on Bere
    The eighth day the moneth Fevrer,
    The date of Jesu Crist truly
    An Mcccc five and forty.
    Wee may not prey, hertely prey ye
    For owr Soulys, Pater Noster and Ave,
    The sooner of owr peyne lessid to be,
    Grant us the holy trinite. Amen
