Here lyeth in peace the body of the Right Worshipful, Sir William Glover,
Citizen and Alderman of London. Who for the many good Gifts, both in sincere
Wisedome, and Gravity, wherewith he was very plentifully graced, was elected
London, and served the same, Anno Domini, 1601. He had lived in good name and
fifty eight yeeres, and very blessedly departed this transitory life, the
seventeenth day of
Decemb. 1603. Leaving two Sonnes, (viz.) Thomas and William. And five
viz. Anne, married to Barne Roberts, of Willesden, in the County of Middelsex,
Susan, Elizabeth, Mary, and Alice, behinde him, to condole the want of so kinde
loving a Father.
To whose dearest Memory, the Lady Anne Glover, the most sorrowful Widdow of the
Sir William, lamenting his Death, and her own unrecoverable Loss; at her own
erected this Monument, in testification both of her Love and Duty.

Here lyeth the body of Barne Roberts, eldest Son of Frances Roberts of
Willesden, in the
County of Middlesex, Esquire; who tooke to Wife, Anne, eldest Daughter of Sir
Glover, Knight, and Alderman of Lond. By whom he had issue three Sonnes, and
Daughters. The said Barne Roberts dyed the 30. day of January, 1610. being of
the age of
34 yeeres, and five moneths. In remembrance of whom, his said Wife, (of her
and loving affection) at her owne proper cost and charges, hath caused this
be made and erected An. Dom. 1611.
If humane worth
could have preserv'd him still,
He had beene much
too strong for death to kill.
Yet being conquered,
got by the strife,
A better being,
in a better life:
So that great Victor
over Nature, left him
More happinesse ten fold
than he bereft him.

Qui Patriæ Leges
æquo moderamine flexit,
Et Judex populo

Hoc decorat genio
marmor placidoq; pioque,
Stabit in æternum
quod bona fama tegit.
Gentem si quæras?
erat ille Checestriensis,
nobilis ortus agro.
Uxores binas duxit,
nec pignora desunt,
pulchræ, pudica, pia.
Filius egregii nominis,
Qui celebrat, primi

Elizabetha illi soror est,
ab utroque parente

Conjugii sed Martha

Margareta ab illis

Sic numero florens

A handsom small Monument in the Wall by the other.
An honest heart,
A zealous soule,
a charitable mind,
True dealing conscience,
all untruth rejected,
All these in one
are hard and far to find:
Yet in this course,
both time and truth have tryed,
In youth and age,
John Taylor liv'd and dyed.
