Holles, George

  In Latin: To George Holles, Kt., sprung from a most renowned Anglo-British family: from his youth up, so dedicated to the military arts that he seemed to be born a child of the camp. After he had performed in Belgium all such military service as might become one of high birth, he was appointed supreme leader of his people, and publicly proclaimed Major General. Departing peacefully from the northern purlieus of the capital, it was his wish that here he might be set, in a most honourable rivalry, beside Francis Vere, his commander and kinsman: the links [created by] their [shared] dangers were [even] greater than those of consanguinity. John, his brother, Earl of Clare, placed [this] here, deeply sorrowing, for a deeply meritorious brother. He lived for 50 years, 3 months and 4 days. He died on 19th May 1626.
