In the north aisle of the choir, "on side of N. wall, lyes a white stone, under wch lyes buried Jane Thweng, wth this Escocheon of Arms hanging in a wooden Frame over her, we" this Inscription: - Qrley 19t. & last A. a fess gu. inter 3 popingayes vt. 2d & 3d. A. on a chevr. B. 3 garbs O.

Jane Thweng, daughter and co-heiress (with her sister Ann) of Thomas Thweng, esq. of Kilton (who died in 1678), by Jane, eldest daughter of Sir Joseph Cradock, Knt., LL.D. of Richmond, died at York, intestate, administration of her effects being granted, 1 April, 1686, to her mother, who was then the wife of George Tocketts, esq. of Tocketts.

(94). Mr. William Spink was bur. ye 8th of March, 1685.
The lady Henrietta Maria, daughter of James Stanley, earl of Derby, and widow of Richard lord Molyneux, married. 27 February, 1654-5, William Wentworth, earl of Strafford, and died 27 December, 1685. See No. 122. The following inscription to her memory, written by her husband, remains in the church at Wentworth :-
"The lady Henrietta Mary Stanley, countess of Strafforde, second daughter to the most noble and excellent lord James earle of Derby, who died a martyr for his king and country the 15th October, 1651, and that matchless lady Charlotte Tremoille, countesse of Derby, daughter to Claude duke of Tremoille and Charlotte Brabantine de Nassau, second daughter to William prince of Orange, by Charlotte de Bourbon, princesse of Orange. This noblest lady was borne the 17th November, 1630. She was the most beloved child of her princely parents ; and, as her most noble father was so highly obliging as to have long wished it, she was married to William earle of Strafforde the 27th February, 1654. And to the inexpressible griefe of her afflicted husband, she died of a spotted fever at London, upon the 27th of December, 1685.
"She was of middle stature, excellent shape and grace, and in her beautiful eyes and mien appeared the surpassing virtues of her soule, the greatest life, modesty, affability, and goodnesse I think imaginable. Never wife did more truly and passionately love her husband, and for his sake all that were friends to him. Shee had in a most eminent degree, largenesse of heart, wisdom, and piety, worthy of a far better fortune than, by the sufferings of her husband and both their families, she found. Her excellence is impossible to bee expressed, consequently for me to shew that honour to her memory I desire to doe. But in this poore church I chiefly leave the marks of it ; the place for the worship of God being fittest for the memoriall of a saint, and daughter of a saint. May this admirable lady and the renowned stock shee came from, bee ever remembered with the highest honour, by me and all my family and name, while there remains any of them upon earth, and bee never forgot by posterity, though she left none. The Lord of his infinite mercy joyne mee again unto her in everlasting blisse. Amen. An. Dom. 1689. Strafforde." (Hunter's South Yorkshire, ii. 88).
At the funeral of the above countess of Strafford, a scandalous and disgraceful scene occurred in the Minster. As a compliment, and also as a matter of precaution, a company of Sir John Reresby's grenadiers, at that time quartered in York, was directed to accompany the funeral procession. The soldiers met the hearse at the Windmills beyond Micklegate Bar. When they got to the Minster, at the choir door, " they stood on either side of the corps, to let the same be carryed quietly in, and to hinder the rabble from stealing the escutcheons off from the pall and herse, and to let the clergy and gentry that attended the corps to go quietly in."-The mob and the military soon came into collision, when the latter were very roughly handled, and had to withdraw from the Minster. Richard Hewit, gent., who witnessed the scene, was "credably informed the escutcheons of the deceased countesse that were placed round the quire weere all torne downe before the service was donn ; and, when the corps was brought to the place of interrment, whilst the Deane was in performing the service," he saw " severall persons teare doune the escutchions that were placed over the place of interment." (Depositions from Work Castle, ed. Surt. Soc., pp. 279-281.)

Tobias Wickham of York died intestate, and on 14th August, 1691, administration of his effects was granted to his widow Anne, who is erroneously, as I believe, called Amy in the above inscription. Sir Stephen Thompson does not mention a daughter Amy in his will, dated 17 Oct. 1687. His daughter Anne was then the wife of Metcalfe Weddell, esq. of Earswick, who died in 1688, and probably his widow became the wife of Tobias Wickham. She appears to have afterwards married Dr. Charles Palmer, rector of Long Marston, and canon of York. See Nos. 139, 140.
