In the nave of this Church are deposited the remains of JOHN MIDGLEY, Gentleman, late of Scholemore. He was a man of very sound morals and
ways of life. He generously exercised such knowledge of common law and statute law as he had (in which his ability was more than just moderate) in
notably philanthropic duties. Here are also the remains of his wife, BATHSHEBA, the eldest daughter of JOHN HOLLINGS, Gentleman, of Crosley Hall.
Four children were born to them, of whom two, JOHN and ELIZABETH, yielded up their lives after an all too short possession of them. MARY and
MARTHA, the surviving daughters and joint-heirs set up this marble (monument) in memory of their dearly loved parents.
JOHN died on June 23rd, 1730, aged 55
BATHSHEBA died on August 19th, 1736, aged 49.
The aforesaid daughters and joint-heirs, MARY (wife of SAMUEL LISTER of Little Horton, Esquire) died on October 18th, 1762, aged 43; and MARTHA
died unmarried on June 14th, 1778, aged 56.
