A small fascinating tablet dated 1639 near the piano, the most interesting of many memorials to two of the local Flowers family, who lived for many years in the adjoining Manor, which is reputed to be the oldest occupied manor house in the country and is largely Norman.
The third, a gem now covered by a carpet, in front of the altar step inscribed:
'The Rev Thomas Slater' 'Also of Charles, his son by Rachel his second wife, daughter of the Rev. Richard Barry, rector of Upton Scudamore in the county of Wilts and vicar of Bitton in ye County of Gloucester, who served as a midshipman in his majesty's navy and in the year 1783 went out with the Grand Fleet under the command of Lord Howe to the relief of Gibraltar, was a most promising youth but unfortunately lost his life by bathing in the river Avon, July 12th, 1785, aged 13 years.'
Around the edge it reads,
"Robert Flower who deceased the 15th of July 1631"
In the centre it reads,
"Heare lyeth the body of Lamorock Flower who deceased the 6 day of April 1639. Flowers they war clypt in ye Springe but flourishing now with Christ their King"
