The City of WESTMINSTER.44


This Monument is near unto the other, having this Inscription.

Here lyeth entombed Mary Lady Dudley, Daughter of William Lord Howard of Effingham, in his Time Lord High Admiral of ENGLAND, Lord Chamberlaine, and Lord Privy Seale. Shee was Grand-childe to Thomas Duke of Norfolke, the second of that Sur-name, and Sister to Charles Howard Earl of Nottingham, Lord High Admiral of England. By whose prosperous direction, through the Goodness of God, in defending his Handmaid Queen Elizabeth, the whole Fleet of Spaine was defeated and discomfited.
She was first married to Edward Sutton Lord Dudley, and after to Richard Mountpesson, Esquire; who, in the Memory of her Vertues, and last Testimony of his Love, erected this Monument. Shee slept in Christ Jesus in the Yeere of our Lord 1600, the 21. of August, attending the joyful Day of her Resurrection.
