Memorial Inscriptions – Perkins

These pages contain selected memorial inscriptions from the churchyard or interior of All Saint’s Church, Wing. Any bits in brackets I’m not 100% sure of as it’s hard to see in the photos. If you’ve visited Wing you’ve probably got photos or notes about the gravestones for your families. If so, please share them by emailing me (the higher the resolution the better). For more surnames, please check the Memorial Inscriptions Index.

Memorial to John Perkins of Wing Buckinghamshire

Near this Place is interr’d the Body of John PERKINS Student of Queens College Oxford, who died at Eythrope in this County on the 30th day of July 1777 in the 23rd Year of his Age, whose amiable disposition had endeared him to all his acquaintance and in particular to the Earl of Chesterfield who hath caused this to be erected to his memory.
