Francis Kemble Hatchment at The Church of St. Margaret, Stratton St. Margaret, Wiltshire

Back to Photograph

Not only do we have two transcriptions of the text on this hatchment, but we have two translations too.  As Latin translation is not an exact science it is open to interpretation, but at least we can see what the words mean to portray.  Two people were kind enough to do a translation, and their results follow the transcription.

Here is a transcription found in Swindon Library :

Hie jacet Franciscus Kembie generosus filius secondus Natu Franscisei Kembie De Sacerdotia Genitus Qu Apulis die rono obit corporus anno Aerata 69? Sux Octogesimo quarto anno Domini 1704 Hie jacet Juditha Kembie, Francisci Kembie, generosi vxor Guilliani Fisher de Sherborn in Conty of Dosset itidem nerosi filia Natie minium que obit December 26 1677, aged 58

Here is my transcription:
