Margery Clent Jacobean tomb


This monument is to Margery Clent (d1623) who died in childbirth. Her sister also died in childbirth a year later and a monument to her is nearby. Both monuments are the work of Samuel Baldwin of Stroud.
Margery was the daughter of Bishop Miles Smith who was responsible for the translation of the later books of the Old Testament, and preface, for the King James Version of the bible.
