Jonathan Sprigg

Memorial Number: 32*

A memorial recording of this headstone was taken in June 2017.  Portions of the incised inscription were clear but worn, and other areas were too weathered to be legible.  The inscription that was distinguishable read:  

HERE LYES YE BODY
OF JONATHAN SPRIGG
AND ROSE HIS WIFE
AND FOUR CHILDREN
OF BENJAMIN ____
**

Note:  It appears that this gravestone had been used previously.  There were traces of text written on the bottom of this gravestone.  The bottom edge of Sprigg’s stone was originally the top of another person’s gravestone.


This memorial stone was also recorded in 1984 and forms part of an archive at the Devon Record Office.  The memorial record from 1984 records the inscription as follows:

HERE LYES YE BODY
OF JONATHAN SPRIGG
AND ROSE HIS WIFE
AND FOUR CHILDREN
