10/242 Tooker headstone about 9m south - east of the porch of the Church of St Constantine

GV II

Headstone. Probably late C18. Freestone. Triangular-headed stone commemorating William Tooker of Longbrooke, died 1645, the style and the verse are, however, late C18. The headstone has a border of flat acanthus leaves and incized scrollwork above the inscription. A verse below praises William Tooker's generosity to the poor "his heart his hand his dore his purse/to them were open still/his love to them did never dye/appeareth by his will/". The headstone may be conceived as a charity board possibly referring to a particular endowment. An unusual example of a retrospective headstone.
