CULMSTOCK PRESTCOTT ST 01 SE 9/62 Lippincott chest tomb - approximately 4 metres west of Prescott Baptist Church GV II Chest tomb. Dated 1753 in memory of Mary Lippincott. Beerstone ashlar. Rectangular in plan the chest tomb stands on a gadrooned base. The sides are panelled with a Vitruvian scroll frieze and the lid is soffit-moulded and has a low- pitched ridge on the top. Some of the panels are inscribed with Roman serif upper and lower case lettering. The left of the 2 south-facing panel records the death of Mary Lippincott in 1753; the right one commemmerates Elizabeth Lippincott (d. 1760) and other members of the family who died about this time are recorded on other panels. For a Devon non-conformist monument this is both unusually early and unusually ornate.
