Lancashire / Request for Photos of Headstone - St Mary the Virgin, Knowsley
« on: Tuesday 19 December 17 16:41 GMT (UK)  »
Hello

I have a very poor quality photo (attached) of a family headstone in the churchyard of St Mary the Virgin, Knowsley.  I can make out some of the names and guess at some of the text, but I would very much like a better quality photo of the headstone overall - and two or three 'close up' photos of the various inscriptions. 

I've been tempted to drive up and have a look for myself but its a 200 mile round trip. Would anyone be kind enough to take a few photos for me?

Thanks - Simon

Thank you again - for the further translation and explanation - it all makes sense now.

Thank you - for the welcome, the translation & the advice re copyright!

But the translation raises a further query - what connection (if any) did Joseph Painter and Richard Mousley have?  I know that Richard Mousley went on to marry Jane Towe (as is perhaps made clearer by the writing on the rear of the allegation), but what role would Joseph Painter have played in events?

Hello

Could anyone please help with a translation of the Latin section of the attached marriage allegation which I understand relates to Richard Mousley of Atherstone, Warwickshire and Jane Towe of Chilvers Coton, Warwickshire.

Thank you - Simon
