Notes on a Devonshire funeral sermon in the seventeenth century

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 14, (1882), pp. 493-515.


W. Pengelly

Prepared by Michael Steer

The paper, read at the Association's July 1882 Crediton meeting presents notes on a sermon delivered in 1656 at Bovey Tracey Church by Francis Moore, Curate of neighbouring Highweek, at the funeral of Mrs Mary Forbes, wife of Rev James Forbes, the Vicar. Forbes was chaplain to Charles I and expressed strong views on the Bloody Parliament of 1642. He was ejected during the Commonwealth (during which period his wife died and her monument was erected outside the church). Rev Forbes was re-instated after the Restoration in 1660. Mrs Forbes was the daughter of Thomas Gardyner, of Grove Place, in the Countie of Buckinghame, Esqre. The sermon would have been far over the heads of the majority of church goers at that time, and probably still.
