Sir Thomas Horseman,
Inscription on the tomb.
From p.351 of [Trollope, 1872].
Translation: "To the sacred memory of Sir Thomas Horsman, son and heir of Thomas Horsman esquire, sometime Lord of this Manor, and Elizabeth, one of the daughters and co-heirs of Sir Robert Hussey knight. Having from his early youth been educated in the liberal arts. Thereafter at the behest of the most distinguished William, Lord Burghley, Treasurer of England, he was for 40 years joined to the household of Queen Elizabeth and served and performed the function of taster / cup bearer to her serene Majesty The Queen." "A man distinguished for his profound faith, steadfastness and probity of morals, he died the 26th day of November 1610, full of days and well in his body for 74 years. As he desired Thomas Horsman, his nephew and heir, erected this monument to piously commemorate his memory."
