The epitaph supposedly found in the churchyard of All Saints, Weston is probably apocryphal, being recorded in tea-table miscellanies with various names, occupations, and ages. The parish has no record of this memorial.
Lyrics: Anon

Undeck'd by sculpture's trophies gay,
This stone no flatt'ring tale can tell
Of her who claims this simple lay,
Of her who fills this narrow cell;
Save that in beauty's early bloom
The path of innocence she trod,
Save that her childhood found a tomb,
Save that her spirit rests with God.
