Rev. Thomas Axton left a PCC Will PROB11/896, dated 11th February 1764. He doesn't seem to have much to bequeath, and the will is rather touching in it's sentiments. He "desires to be buried in the church in the middle aisle, just opposite the desk". His wife, Elizabeth is Executor; to her he leaves, furniture, plate, books, cash and profits from his living. After her death, to "the child she is pregnant with by me" Although he has nothing to bequeath her, he gives his "dying thanks to his faithful friend, Mrs De La Creuze, for her tender care and generous support of me, from Infancy to Manhood, when I was bereaved of every other friend". His wife is to return to Mrs De La Creuze, a miniature portrait of her late husband, Stephen De La Creuze.

"MORTE, ITUR AD IMORTALITATEM"

Henry Needler, died 1661, was born at Horley, Surrey in 1619. By the 1650's he was living in St. Nicholas, Rochester, where his two sons were baptised, John in 1652 and Henry in 1654. He was a Lt. Colonel in the Parliamentary Militia, and in 1653 he was a Commissioner for Kent. In 1660 he took out a lease from the Bridge Wardens on Quarry House, Frindsbury. After his death, his widow, Jane took over the lease, which she held for a further 24 years. Henry's will, is dated 2nd August 1661, only 2 days before he died. The will was not proved until 1675! The arms on his monument in the south aisle are said to be of Scrace, not Needler, Henry's mother was a Scrace. In his will he bequeathed to son Henry, property and land called Pound Marsh at Pevensey Marsh in Sussex, occupied by William Peckham, property and land in Woodmancote, occupied by Edward Hill, land elsewhere in Sussex, and 100. To son John , 500; to his "loving kinsman", Henry Sheafe, 50 shillings, to his "loving brother", John, 50 shillings. Residue to wife Jane, she to take care of tuition and education of his sons during their minority; Jane appointed Executor, brother John, Overseer, to assist her. Witnesses: William Laughton and Francis Brooker (PCC Will PROB11/348)
    Henry's son, Henry, married Rose Watson, daughter of Robert Watson of Frindsbury, in London in 1686, (see Watson Monument). Henry, Jnr died in London in 1692, and was buried at Frindsbury but there never seems to have been a monument to him. His son, also Henry was born in 1690 and was employed in the Navy Office. He was a minor poet and notable essayist acquainted with the leading intellectual and literary circles of his day. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, says of him, "The essay-like "familiar letters", mostly dating from 1709 1711, touch on a variety of moral and philosophical themes, and are of particular interest on account of the intellectual influences they reflect"
   Again there never seems to have been a monument for this Henry, who death at the early age of 28, may have been due to a brain tumour?

At this point, I hope the repetition of Henry is not too confusing!
   The poet's cousin, yet another Henry,* was the son of John Needler, 1652 1714. This Henry was born in 1685, and eventually rose to be Accountant General in the Excise Office. He too, was a talented youth, more so than his cousin. His talent was in the field of music, particularly as a violin player. As a young man he was taught by Daniel Purcell, younger brother of the famous Henry Purcell, he was also a pupil of John Bannister, first violin at the Drury Lane Theatre. Needler was reputed to be the finest performer of Corelli's music in, he was said to have been the first to play Corelli's music in England. Had he not been a "Gentleman" he would undoubtedly have been an outstanding professional. I suppose that because, no matter how gifted he was, he was still a "Gentleman Amateur ", so no mention is made of his talents on his monument? He was associated with Thomas Britton, a charcoal merchant, who formed a music society and performed contemporary music at his house in Clerkenwell. Concerts were also given at the homes of noblemen, "I made Mrs. Taylor a visit this afternoon, when I met Mr. Needler; he played two or three solos sweetly upon his violin; it soothed some of my melancholy thoughts, and I was very sorry when he had done" Letter from Mrs. Pendarver to Mrs. Ann Granville, 5th December 1729----Life and Correspondence of Mrs. Delaney, Vol. 1, p.228. Needler was also a friend of Handel, who frequently visited his house, in fact, among the 28 volumes of Needler's music transcriptions in the British Library is one of the few copies of the earliest version of The Messiah. Henry' s gravestone was originally in the south aisle, where all the Frindsbury Needlers are probably buried; perhaps a notice to this effect, highlighting the talent interred here could be displayed on the wall?
   By his will dated 26th February 1753, he left 500 to his sister Elizabeth, his personal estate to his wife, Hester. The reversion of his real estate at Horley to his wife and sister; after their deaths, the remainder to his cousin, William Truman of St. John, Westminster, House Painter. If the latter has no issue of his body, then to his aunt Elizabeth Robbins, wife of Samuel of Brentford, if she has no issue of her body, to his "own right heirs".
   Witnesses: Thomas Stevenson, Goulston Bruere and Francis Marshall of the Excise Office (PCC Will PROB11/434)
   *There is an engraved portrait of Henry Needler in Hawkins, History of the Practise and Science of Music, 1776
   Henry's wife, Hester (oddly, Easter on the gravestone?) is also represented in the British Library with 1 volume of anthems of her own composition. On her death the following appeared in the Gentleman's Magazine, 27th January 1783, "At Dorking, Surrey, Mrs. H. Needler relict of H.N. Esq., in her 91st year.............A lady greatly beloved by all who knew her, for her benevolent disposition"
   By her will dated 25th June 1782, she desired to be buried in Frindsbury Church in the same grave as her" late dear husband". Stock of three and a half per cent Bank annuities of 1758 to Henry Newnum of Dorking, in trust for the maintenance and education of Mary Hill daughter of her late niece Sarah, during her minority. If she dies before 21,with no lawful issue, then 200 plus interest, to Ann Saunders, Elizabeth Hall and Henry Newnum. To Henry Newnum 500 of same stock. To Mary Hall and Mary Dolland, grand daughters of late sister, Mary Barnsley, 50 each. To Catherine Capps wife of -------- Capps eldest daughter of of Sarah Truman, widow, Thomas Truman and Sarah Truman, spinster, 650, other part of the stock. To Thomas, Elizabeth, Mary and Maria Robbins of Old Brentford, children of late husband's aunt 650, other part of stock. To Margaret Whaley of Ridge, Hertfordshire, spinster and niece of Jane Sage, dec. 50 To Sarah Philpot daughter of Henry and Catherine Slater, dec. wife of ------- Philpot, of Clare Court, near Clare Market, London, Hatter, and to Catherine, sister of Sarah Philpot, 25 each. To Elizabeth Shiply of the Poultry, City of London, niece of Hannah Jones, widow, dec. 20. To Gabriel Mathias of Scotland Yard, Westminster, Gent., 50. To Henry Newnum, of Dorking, Gent., 50 and Iron Chest. To John Humphrey and --------- Jupp of Horley, Surrey Yeomen, 25 in trust, for poor of parish of Horley. To Mrs. Mary Deane of Dorking and Henry Newnum 12 for the poor of Dorking. To Richard Barnes of Reigate, Gent., the pictures of my great grandfather and of Mrs. Rose Needler which are now at Mrs. Deane's. To Godson, Henry Cooke, son of Doctor Cooke, 50 at 21. To Mrs. Mary Deane of Dorking, 20. All household goods and clothes, to Henry Newnum, much of which was left with him when she moved out of his house. To Elizabeth Lyden of Plough Court, Carey Street, London, spinster, 20; if she is dead, same sum to her niece now living with her. Quarter of residue to niece Ann Saunders, quarter to niece Elizabeth Hall, remaining half to Henry Newnum. Executors, Gabriel Mathias and Henry Newnum.
   Witnesse: Edward Turner and Heath Langley (PCC Will PROB11/1105)
   The portrait is of Rose Needler, nee Watson. I wonder where it is now, and whether the identity of the sitter is known?

Margaret Trevor's father, Francis Percy, was born in Devon, and with his brother had settled in Cambridge before 1680, where he established himself as a Stone Mason, later entering local politics. Like his father, he believed he was the rightful Earl of Northumberland, claiming descent through Thomas Percy, one of the Gun Powder Plot conspirators. Francis Percy renewed the claim in 1680, (the 10th Earl had died in 1670 with no direct heir). Percy enlisted the aid of antiquarian William Dugdale, who encouraged him. Percy travelled all over England to pursue his claim, but eventually gave up. The weakest point in the case was the paternity of his grandfather, and many dates and ages do not make genealogical sense. Even so, the monument to his son, Captain Francis Percy, R.N., a very gallant and lucky officer, in St. Margaret's church, Rochester, repeats the lineage claim as if certain! Captain Percy survived many battles and disasters, such as the shipwreck which killed Sir Cloudsley Shovel. There is a ledger stone in the floor of the nave of Rochester Cathedral, to the child and wife of John Trevor, perhaps members of the same family?
