      "Dear Tony

      Although the museum is officially closed (or perhaps because) I have brought home the 1985 LHG survey of the churchyard and a transcript of the St Martin's section of the Bax 1884 work made by "EGJ 1924".

      According to EGJ: Headstone: Sacred to the Memory of THOMAS Martyr, son of John and Jane Martyr who died Jan 6 1821 aged 28 years. Also William Martyr ... Nov 1 1843 aged 60.

      Also Double headstone for Jane M wife of John - 3 March 1798 age 41 and John M - 29 Sept 1825 age 77 and his relict Eleanor - 14 Sept 1838 age 78.

      Also Headstone for James M - 30 Sept 1840 age 45.

      Thank you for spotting the error, which I will amend. This is only a quickie as I should not really be looking at local history but I have to say it is far more interesting than Christmas preparations!"
