HADKINS, Elizabeth (d.1767)

Epitaph in Cotham churchyard

"Stop Passenger, until my life you've read;

The living may get knowledge from ye dead;

Six times three years I liv'd a virgin life;

Seven times two years I was a virtuous wife;

Eight times six years I liv'd a widow chaste;

Tired of this mortal life; and now I rest"


(Noted by GUILFORD, Everard L. Nottinghamshire (London: Methuen & Co., 1910), p.79)
