TQ2685NW CHURCH ROW 798-1/26/245 Tomb of William & John Hart and R Carey & A Cary in St John's Churchyard

GV II*

Chest tomb above brick vault. c1717. Limestone. Rectangular plan on stepped base. Long sides with fine carved panels of swags with cherub heads, skulls and inscriptions, flanked by egg-and-dart and gadrooned Classical enrichment to angles. Ends with fine carved panels depicting a tasselled skull and crossbones surmounted by a winged hour-glass hanging from a ribbon, and a tasselled skull with bones and cross trumpets surmounted by a winged and ribboned feature. Lid with weathered inscription. HISTORICAL NOTE: William Hart, "late Citizen and Salter of London" is buried with his son, John, "Citizen and Mercer of London". Robert Carey, presumably his son in law, was interred in 1751 and described as "Tiramiet Merchant" which it appears was the mason's misinterpretation of the cursive lettering "Virginia Merchant". The name Carey is also spelt without an "e" for the females. A fine, well preserved example of an C18 chest tomb.
