John Hill memorial, Ullingswick church
On the south wall. A carving of a skull sits above the memorial.
The plaques above the picture reads:
"Here lyeth the body of John Hill gentleman
heire to John Hill gent of the Nether Covrte
who marryed the eldest davghter one of Y coheires of Hvgh Brooke Esqwer of Lovnge Ashton in Y covnty of Somerset
lyneally descndinge from Y hovse of Y Lord Cobram
& he had by her thre sonns & two davghters.
These arms came by hir
and hee departed this lyffe the thirde daye of Febrvary in the x xiii yere of the raigne of ovre Soveraigne Lady Queen Elizabethe Anno Doni 1590
Vpon Whom The Lorde Hathe Mercy"

The kneeling figures are labelled (from left to right):
Francis thir yovnger
John thir eldest sonne
Elisabethe his wyfe
Jane thir davght er

The plaque above the memorial mentions three sons and two daughters.
There are two white tied bundles below the male and female groups.
Could these be the other boy and girl - still born or died soon after birth?
They are called John and Jane - the same name as the eldest (surviving) son and daughter.
Was it common practice to re-use a name of a dead child?
