    "Against the wall [of St James the Great, Elmsted], in the north chancel, is an elegant marble with a bust above it, and the following just inscription:
    'Sacred to the memory
    of Sir John Honywood, Baronet,
    of Elvington in this parish,
    Who in times when simplicity and hospitality of manners
    Were giving way to fashion and refinement
    Maintained them pure and uncorrupted,
    And was an eminent example of the virtues of private life.
    In religion, of sincere and unaffected piety;
    In morals, of strict honesty and integrity;
    In social life, of openness and freedom of conversation
    Amongst all ranks of men.
    His Tenants, Neighbours, and those who served him
    Never experienced from him oppression,
    But all the good offices of kindness and benevolence;
    Thus did many partake of the influence of his example, and the affluence of his fortune.
    Others may have moved in a higher sphere,
    But no man ever contributed more
    To the advantage, comfort and happiness
    of the circle round him.
    He died the 26th of June, 1781, aged 71.
    In the same vault is buried
    Dorothy his second wife,
    who died 1781, aged 70.'"
