The paper, read at the Association's 1888 Exeter meeting follows the author's initial paper on the Slanning family delivered at its 1887 meeting. In it, Winslow Jones describes and discusses the brass memorial plate to William Denham (d. 1583) in Thorpe Church near Chertsey on which the first four lines are identical with corresponding lines on the Nicholas Slanning (d. 1583) memorial brass plate in Bickleigh Church. The paper concludes with a brief corrigenda for the earlier paper. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
