Here resteth in the Lord Richard Coxe of Porters, Kt., third son of Thomas Coxe of Beymonds in the county of Hertford Esq., servant in the royal palace for many years and approved for his fidelity, diligence and prudence, Taster to Queen Elizabeth and King James, to the latter of which he was, at length, made Steward of the Household, a man of religion, courteous in manners, chaste of body, temperate in his affections, highly regarded. He treated the deserving with love, his relatives with beneficence, the poor with charity, and all with equity.
