 Stone No. 1465




Here resteth, in the Lord, John Pearson, merchant and skipper, of good pedegree ; who, after his education at Spain, and several voyages abroad, lived here with his beloved wife, Margaret Davidson, peaceably and honestly 36 years, now ceasing from his labours, died 1 May, 1669. Of his age 67.

At Spain, a little in youth he did remaine,

Ply'd other voyages, but always without staine;

His heart on Christ was stablished by grace,

In faith and patience strove to run his race;

Who here in tomb doth rest, until that he

Be call'd from hence to his eternitie.
