Commemorative panel and datestone, The Old School, West Hallam
Commemorative panel and datestone, The Old School, West Hallam
The inscription dates from 1758 and is an odd mixture of English and Latin. It would have been moved from the building that was a precursor to this one.

It reads as follows:
The Rev
Mr John Scargill hujus Aedis Rector
Built and endowed this School
Cum Fundi Censu
Et obiit
Januarii Die 17. Anno a Christi ortu 1662
Mr Tho. Hague, Willm Coke, Thos Scattergood
and Zachary Warhey Trustees
Erected this Stone
Anno Erae Xnae
MDCCLVIII
Frans Greay Mr.
Ens Entium miserere mei.

The Latin elements translate as follows:
"hujus Aedis Rector":"Rector of this house"
"Cum Fundi Censu Et obiit Januarii Die 17. Anno a Christi ortu 1662":"from his own property and he died 17 January in the year 1662 from the birth of Christ"
"Anno Erae Xnae MDCCLVIII":" In the year of the Christian era 1758"
"Frans Greay M[agiste]r. Ens Entium miserere mei":"Francis Greay Schoolmaster Lord of all beings have mercy on me"
