The Morris table-top tomb

Morris monument

The main panel of the tomb (above) commemorates William Morris (1729-1813) and his wife Mary Weston (1741-1777). The second long panel was either never used or has been completely weathered away.

The two end panels commemorate (left) William, son of William and Mary, who died a few months after his mother, and (right) Ann 'wife of William Morris' (1749-1812). It seems likely that Ann was William's second wife.
