Catalogue Description:
Three epitaph plaques, identity of commemorated individual to be determined, but given the date to 1631, the individual likely lived from the end of the 16th century to circa 1631. Each plaque consists of 8 lines of text. One plaque is slightly discolored (yellow) and has an old repair that obscures part of the text. Some characters have been re-written on top of the repair. Each plaque has a line of text written on one long edge.
