Gravestones and Memorials in and around the Church

In 1889 a set of books, Westmorland Church Notes, was published by Edward Bellasis. He was "Lancaster Herald; Of Lincoln's Inn, Barrister at Law".

 Volume 2 covers Kirkby Stephen Parish Church. Mr Bellasis visited Kirkby Stephen in September 1874 and stayed with the then vicar Canon Simpson. He visited again in 1888 and acknowledged the assistance of the obliging and inteligent Sexton Mr Nathan Berry who is mentioned in the text of the book.

Mr Berry received a copy of the book which has been passed into the ownership of the Church. This copy of the book has many handwritten notes from Mr Berry. I will add them to the text below as I can. Mr Berry's notes will appear as red text.

In the list below there are some entries that do not appear in the origional book. They are duplicate entries created when more than one surname is included on a stone or memorial. They are enclosed for ease of searching and are indicated by green text.

N. & B. I, 541, speak of 3 "defaced coats" only, at the west end! Mr. Bellasis' while naming the quarterings &c., has added (in brackets) the proper metals and tinctures, where Machell has not done so, and even certain charges where the monument is imperfect. Mr. Hodgson thinks it possible that in the latter's time the colours, so far as they are given by him, were extant on the monument. 2 This N .E. corner has been knocked off by some violent catastrophe. 3 They look like saltires and are sometimes 8, sometimes 10 in number here. See Mr. Bellasis' note in Cumbd. and Westmd Antiq. and Arch. Soc. Trans., pt. 1, vol. iv.,p. 212. 4 This coat is really divided here per fess with the 3 lions in chief, and 3 ermine spots in base, but it may have been intended correctly as given above. 5 The relative position of these supporters should be reversed. See Coll: Arms, Sir E. Walker's Nobility. 6Bendy of 6 or 10, is another version, Segar III. 949.1040. 7As Ufflett heir immediately succeeds St. Philibert heir, according to the genealogies, and the latter does not appear in her pedigree as introducing another quartering, this coat has not been identified. 8Mr. Bellasis notes in base a straight and an indented line, Machell notes both this coat and Montgomery with an engrailed border. 9i.e. Glover's Yorkshire Visitation 1584-5 (Coll. Arms 2nd died 5.526), gives a chief and no sinister canton. 10 i.e. This coat was borne by Mary Parke, who, although no heiress, was mother of Cecily coheir to John Mortimer. (Coll. Arms, Segar's Baronage pt. 2, p. 790), Vert, an eagle displayed or, within a border az. is also another Mortimer coat, (id).
