John Wigzell, City-son [Apr. 21st, 2017|03:52 pm]
Tony Grist

Here lieth the body of John Wigzell, City-son and wax-chandler of London...

Simple mis-spelling or clever word-play? Whichever it is the locals clearly appreciated it because when the stone got broken they stuck it back together again and mounted it on the exterior east wall of the church.

This is still Kemsing, by the way.

It's interesting that he outlived his sister by over 40 years and then had her memorialised on his headstone. I feel there's a story there...
