In The Chancell..
(Curate – also Inct. of River).
1. On a Flat Stone. Here lies interred the Body of Thomas HARRISON, late of the
Ffrith, in this Parish. He departed this Life the 18th of October
1707 aged 63 Years. Beneath this Stone, at Rest, the Bodys sleep; The Souls
being fled to God, who safely keeps The Spirits of the Just, to the last Day,
When Christ shall, from ye Clouds, be heard to say, Arise, Ye sleeping Dust, and
come away. At which, the Souls of all to Judgment come; Then, Reader, Thou and I
shall know our doom, From Christ our Judge; Whose Sentence, then, shall be,
Eternal Bliss, or endless Misery. This Vault belongs to Thomas Harrison of The
Frith. Here lyeth Thomas Harrison; he died Jan. 13 1744/5 aged 57.
2. This Church consists only of the Chancell and Body. In a small wooden
Steeple, at the West End, hangs one small Bell, whose Inscription, if any, I cd.
not get at, for want of a Ladder.
3. In The Church Yard, is an Altar Tomb for HARRISON, without Date; and
Headstones in Memory of EASTES, GRUGON, PRESCOT, ROGERS and ROUST.
