Annesley Old Church, Annesley Hall Park
This was from Annesley 'Old' Church of All Saints in Annesley Hall Park. The first part of the inscription says 'here lies the body of William Breton of Annesley', and then gives the date that he died. 'Hic Iacet corpus Willielmi Breton de Ansley qui ad centessimum prope vixit annum obijto tricessimo primo die Janvarrij anno dni 1595.' William Breton was an aged woodsman seen here hunting with his bow and arrows, knife and hound dog.
