Anne, the first: Of whom he had issue, 8 Sonnes and 5 Daughters. Of Margaret his last Wife no issue; which Richard dyed the 19. day of November, An. Dom. 1566.

To the poore he was liberall,     
and gave for Gods sake
But now his fame is plentifull,     
and he an heavenly Make;
He was like one of us,     
according to our mould,
But now he is unlike us,     
in Heaven where he would.
His time was short, in sickness rare,     
as to all is knowne:
But now his time shall long endure,     
and never be cast downe.

Quem tegit hoc marmor,     
Quem cassum lumine flemus,
Abstulit una dies,     
Quantum si forte requiris,
Weldus erat nomen,     
Maior celeberrimus urbis;
Justitiæ splendor,     
veræ pietatis Imago,
Religionis amans,     
ævi prudentia nostri,
Mens humilis, purusq;     
animus, patiensque laborum,
Frons hilaris, faciles     
aures, pectusq; fidele,
Os verax, mites     
oculi, gravitate refulgens
Vultus; Cor placidum     
studiosis, dextra benigna,
Quos non instimulent?     
nobis reticentibus, ipsi
Incipient scopuli     
vivis sermonibus uti;
Justo, Welde, minor     
si spes, si fama fuisset,
De te, Welde, minor     
nostra querela foret.

A goodly Tomb in the South Isle.

Transiit ad vivos     
e vivis Pacis alumnus,
Justitiæ columen;     
Qui decus inde suum
Extulit egregie:     
Pietatem cætera præter
Dilexit; cultus     
Religione, fide.
Non patrem tantum     
proles, fine murmure luctus
Percipit; at vetuit     
mors superare modum:
Vulnus opemq; ferens,     
æquo. Quid plangitis ultra?
Angelus en! factus;     
nec minor ante fuit.
Quæ potuit cuiquam,     
optari Mors, vitaq; honore
Fulta: & amicitiis     
inclita; prole, fide.
Obtigit hæc, Cambelle,     
tibi, utraque scilicet annis
Maturis, meriti     
& plenus amoris obis.
Digna viro tibi vita     
fuit, qui viveret ultra,
Dignaq; mors vitâ     
sed meliora frui.
Terminus incertæ     
mors vitæ, & certa salutis
Spes promissa rapit,     
non colit ima fides.
