The Parish Church of St. Peter

On a wooded hillside above the Vale of Dauntsey is the church of St. Peter's at Clyffe Pypard, a 15th century building with a graceful nave terminating eastward in a rood screen.  There is a fine pulpit of 1629 and a large 14th century brass figure of a knight.  At the west end of the south aisle is a monument depicting the life size figure of a Georgian carpenter.

Monumental Inscriptions

Explanation of some of the data/fields in the table.     This data has been transcribed from several different sources.  It is noticeable that errors have been introduced over the years, probably due to deterioration of the grave stones. Differences have been placed into the Notes field.     Entries with no data indicate family members mentioned on grave.     A grave number has been allocated to allow for sorting of the data rather than indicating any specific sequence within the churchyard or church.  Entries with similar grave numbers indicate data pertaining to the same grave.        Monumental Inscriptions

Coroners Bills

County coroners were introduced in England in around 1194 once established other boroughs and liberties sought the right to have their own coroner.  Often in Medieval times the coroner also assumed the role of the sheriff and his duties weren't limited to holding inquests on dead bodies although almost a full time post they were unpaid for the duties apart from those that were deemed murder or manslaughter when they would receive 13s. 4d.   From the 24th June 1752 a law was passed allowing the coroner to claim £1 for every inquest they attended not held in a gaol and also to claim 9d per mile travel allowance from the place of residence.  Inquests held in any gaol were performed at a rate totalling no more than £1.  These costs were to be paid from the county rates.  In cases of homicide the coroner also received the former fee of 13s. 4d.  The coroners submitted their bills at the quarter session sittings for approval.  Coroners Bills 1752-1796
