Copper Plaque : St.Michael and All Angels. Middleton Tyas
Situated on the top of a sarcophagus by the Porch, this copper plaque reads:
INTERRED THE REMAINS
LEONARD SPENCE
ENDUED WITH EVERY VIRTUE
TO ADORN THE MAN
OR PERFECT THE SAINT
HIS EMINENT PIETY STRICT INTEGRITY
IMPARTIAL AFFECTION TO HIS FRIENDS
AND UNIVERSAL CHARITY TO MANKIND
ACQUIRED HIM
A GENERAL ESTEEM HERE
AND THE LIVELIEST ASSURANCE
OF HAPPINESS HEREAFTER
AMIDST THE DECAYS OF NATURE
HIS SENSES REMAINED ENTIRE
AND HIS MIND PRESERVED A HAPPY COMPOSURE
SUPERIOR TO THE DISQUIETUDES OF LIFE
AND THE TERROURS OF DEATH IT SELF
WHICH HE CHEERFULLY EMBRACED
THE 30th APRIL 1738
