Memorial to Robert Cawdron(1652) Great Hale church
A tablet mounted on a marble cartouche. Scrolled broken pediment with a shield in a scrolled surround bearing a coat of arms mounted on the crown.
The incised Latin inscription in caps occupies approximately 2/3 of the tablet. Below are incised figures of a man and his two wives kneeling either side of a central desk. The man is bearded and wears half armour and boots. Behind the man are 9 sons and behind the wives are 6 daughters. Five infants (4 male, 1 female) who died in infancy lie beneath in grave clothes with their heads resting on skulls. The tablet rests on a black shelf (broken). Below is a shield with swags on each side held by a bow and scrolls around. The shield bears a coat of arms.
Anne (d.1625) , the first wife of Robert Cawdron, was the daughter of Edward King, of Ashby. His second wife, Mary (d.1667), was the daughter of William Williams, Rector of Aswardby.
Greenhill records 6 of Anne’s sons as Richard, Robert, John, Anthony, Francis and George, and 4 daughters as Bridget, Anne, Katherine and Eleanor. Mary had one son, Augustine. The other children are not named.
