In Latin: John Collier, eldest son of John Collier, gentleman of Hastings in the county of Sussex: died 31st day of December 1732 in the 13th year of his age: a youth dear to his parents, his friends and his teachers, because of the innocence of his manners, the sweetness of his character and his surpassing zeal for learning. So short-lived was this darling of his family, lest their loss should ever become insupportable. [Translation courtesy of Westminster Abbey website, amended.]
Year of death: 1732.
Age at death: 13 (classed as: Child).
