Twysden, John

In Latin: John Twysden, eighth son of Sir William Twysden, Baronet, and Frances his wife, who, in the Admiral's ship, of which he was lieutenant, with Sir Cloudesley Shovel, Admiral of the British Fleet, perished by shipwreck 1707 aged 24. Lest the memory of this excellent youth should at once perish with his body, this cenotaph shall for ever witness the many virtues he had, and the great hopes his parents conceived of him.
