PAINSWICK NEW STREET SO 8609 (part) (south east side) 9/205 Five Poole monuments c.6 m north of north aisle in churchyard of the Church of St Mary

GV II

Five chest tombs. Late C17 to late C18. Limestone. Set on a common base, reading from north to south.

(a) Early C18. Flat table to cavetto mould, lyre ends with cartouches to west and 3 cherubim to east, bolection mould panel with supporters to north, some lettering, and cartouche panel to south, all on broad cavetto base. Records John Poole to north, and 1879 survey gives John Poole 1755, but the design may be fifty years earlier than this.

(b) Lofty chest tomb, mid to late C18. Flat table to moulded edge, elongated ΒΌ balusters, all replaced; sunk panels with moulded surrounds east and west, circular panel with raised moulding within square to north, plain badly worn panel to south, all on cavetto base. The 1879 survey records William Poole, 1771.

(c) Late C17. Thick moulded table to cyma edge, rounded lyre ends with cartou- ches, circular cartouche to north, sunk and moulded with embellishment to south, wide cavetto base. Mainly illegible, but date 1670 decipherable to south side, and recorded in 1879 survey as Anthony Poole, 1670: also mentions a 1658 date then visible.

(d) Late C17. Thick moulded table to cyma edge, rounded lyre ends with cartou- ches, circular panel in cartouche to north and replaced sunk panel to south on broad cyma base. Not legible, but 1879 survey records John Poole, 1667.

(e) Monument nearest to church. Early C18 or late C17. Broad thick table to cyma edge, wide lyre ends richly carved; to north is sunk moulded panel with side panels and some lettering, to the south a rich surround with supporters in high relief, drapes, and 'green man' heads, some lettering: all on cyma base. North side includes Anne (Poole), 1701, and south side Richard Poole, 1798, but the design is certainly of the earlier date.

A very important family group of monuments, all showing the continued weathering characteristic of the churchyard.
