6/44 Edward Dolling monument, c.10 m east of north east corner of Church of St Michael

GV II

Headstone. 1737, to Edward Dolling. Limestone. Square slab to worn decorative top with cherub's head and leaf scrolls. Edward Dolling, it records, '.... Dyed of ve Smallpox which he designedly took Sept 6 1737 Aged 21 years' followed by four lines of suitable verse, all inscribed in local mason's cursive script. This records an early and unsuccessful attempt at inoculation, which was used often with success, until Edward Jenner's discovery of a more certain working method in 1796. In addition to its visual qualities the monument therefore has historical interest.
