Thynne, William

In Latin: Here lies William Thynne, Esq. brother of Sir John Thynne, knight, descended from the ancient family of the Bottevilles, who in his youth travelled to most parts of Europe, fought against the Scots at Musselburgh with undaunted courage. At length, enfeebled with age, he went to sleep in the Lord 14 March 1564. John Chamberlain of Prestbury, Esq., to his most dear kinsman, hath erected this monument. The day of death is the birthday of eternal life. And above the epitaph: Christ is my life, and death my gain. [Translation courtesy of Westminster Abbey website.]
