This information is from the book  Wiltshire Collections  by John Aubrey and John Jackson, published by the Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Society* in 1862.

The text was written by by John Jackson, in the 1860s.

"In the North, commonly called the 'Bradfield, Aisle' in Hullavington Church, is a small Tablet to William Cole of Bristol who died at Bradfield 1701.  He was a writer on Philosophical subjects, and lived here and at Bristol.  Aubrey (in another of his MSS.) mentions him as having this estate in right of his wife.  He had probably married into the James family.  His wife's name was Anne.  She survived him only a few weeks, and was buried 4th November 1701.  (P.R.)  There are several later entries of the name.  Two volumes of Mr. Cole's Letters in MS. relating to points (now obsolete) in Natural Science, written to one of the Southwells of King's Weston, and dated 'From my solitude at Bradfield,' were sold at the auction of the Brockley House Library (near Bristol) in 1849, and are now in the British Museum, as Nos. 18598-9, Addit:  MS.  The inscription to him placed in the Church by a grand-daughter is as follows.

'Gulielmo Cole:  de Bradfield gen:  qui ob:  III. Cal. Sept. A.D. MDCCI.
Anna Gilberti Cale gen:  fil:  Avo materno Beatae Memoriae Posuit.' "
