Memorial to Sir Richard Earle, Stragglethorpe
'A Shell Guide to Lincolnshire' says of St Michael's Church, Stragglethorpe: "Church is a medieval building, with plastered ceiling, bleached pine box pews, and two-decker pulpit." The church has an Anglo-Saxon west wall.

The monument here on the north wall of the chancel is to Sir Richard Earle, 3rd and last baronet who died in 1697. The inscription underneath indicates he was an exemplary character:
"Stay, Reader and observe Death's partial doom
A spreading virtue in a narrow Tomb,
A generous Mind mingled with common Dust,
Like Burnish'd Steel cover'd and left in Rust"

and further on:
"Clear was his Youth and filled with growing Light;
A morn that promised much, Yet saw no Noon
None ever Rose so fast, and Set so soon..."
