[St. Pauls.] Faringdon Ward within. [Monuments.]

Diacono remansit intrepidus. Aere tandem purgato, Episcopus residuum rei divinæ explevit.

Epitaphium ejus super Tumulo.

Ecclesiæ quondam     
Præsul præsentis in Anno

Christe suis precibus     
veniam des, tolle reatus.

Hic infra jacet corpus Magistri Thomæ de Evre, Legum Doctoris, istius Ecclesiæ S. Pauli quondam Decani, qui die nono mensis Octobris, Anno Domini Millesimo, quadringentissimo, & sui Decanatus Anno 12. diem suum clausit extremum. Cujus Animæ propitietur Deus, Amen.]

J. S.

Hic in Domino obdormivit Johannes Gandavensis, vulgò de Gaunt, à Gandavo Flandriæ urbe loco natali, ita denominatus, Edwardi 3. Regis Angliæ filius, à patre Comitis Richmondiæ titulo ornatus. Tres sibi uxores in Matrimonio duxit: Primum, Blancham, filiam & hæredem Henrici, Ducis Lancastriæ, per quem amplissimam adiit hæreditatem: Nec solum Dux Lancastriæ, sed etiam Leicestriæ, Lincolniæ, & Derbiæ Comes effectus. E cujus sobole Imperatores, Reges, Principes, & Proceres propagati sunt plurimi. Alteram habuit uxorem Constantiam (quæ hic contumulatur) filiam & hæredem Petri, Regis Castiliæ & Legionis: cujus jure optimo titulo Regis Castiliæ & Legionis usus est. Hæc unicam illi peperit filiam Katharinam, ex qua ab Henrico Reges Hispaniæ sunt propagati. Tertiam vero uxorem duxit Katharinam, ex Equestri Familia, & eximia pulchritudine fÅ“minam, ex qua numerosam suscepit prolem: Unde genus ex Matre duxit Henricus 7. Rex Angliæ prudentissimus, cujus fÅ“licissimo conjugio cum Edwardi 4. filia, è stirpe Eboracensi, Regiæ illæ Lancastriensium & Eboracensium Familiæ, ad exoptatissimam Angliæ pacem coaluerunt.

Illustrissimus hic Princeps, cognomento Plantagenet, Rex Castiliæ & Legionis, Dux Lancastriæ, Comes Richmondia, Leicestriæ, Lincolniæ & Derbiæ, Locumtenens Aquitaniæ, Magnus Senescallus Angliæ; Obiit Anno 22. Regni Regis Richardi 2. Annoq; Domini 1399.]

Blanch his first Wife, died 1359. (according to Fabian's Chronicle.) She ordained for the said Duke her Husband, and for her self, four Chaunters for ever, and an Anniversary yearly; at which, (besides other great Things given to the Dean and Chapter of the Church) she appointed, that the Maior being present at the Mass, should offer a Penny, and take up 20s. the Sheriffs either of them a Penny, and to receive either of them a Mark; the Chamberlain of the City 10s. the Sword-bearer 6s. 8d. every Officer of the Maior, there present, 22d. to every Officer, to the number of eight; admitted for the Sheriffs, to each of them 8d. The which Obit is at this day holden, (that is, in Fabian's time that relates this.) But by Reason the Land was then decayed, these forenamed Sums were greatly diminished. So that the Maior had but 6s. 8d. and with the Sheriffs, between them, 6s. 8d. and other after that Rate.

Blanch, Duke of Lancaster, his first Wife, her Obit.
