Underneath the niche are two black tablets with the following inscriptions.

Right tablet

Martha's checkt for neglect of Christ's pure world
Mary for her love thereto's on record
This my deare Mary had noe less regard
unto the sacred words of God's Herauld
Another Anna I may truly say
for her fastings & prayers night & day
Ciconia like the linger that she liv'd
The sweeter breath & more spiritulized
not spiderlike figuring vanity
but like the silkeworme seekeing verity
This pious matron stood upon her guard
Resisting him whome else wold her have marr'd

Theise verses were made by John Jermy, Esq, in memory of his wife a little before his death.
