Excerpt from Of a Market Town: As Afforded by a List of the Interments Within the Walls of the Parish Church of St. Nicholas, Great Yarmouth; Collected Chiefly From Monuments and Gravestones Still Remaining, June, 1845

But enough on the score of the gratification to be derived from this volume. In a second, far more limited point of view, it is submitted that similar publications are desirable. They have been found to be useful. A favorite writer of the present day has delivered the following verdict in their favor. They have, he says, a permanent value beyond their local interest every thing which affords genea logical information is important; and such a book mayhereafter complete a link in a pedigree, establish a title to an estate, or revive a dormant peerage. To take the lower view,-for parvumparva decent - the provingof the descent of property by the descent of blood is a matter of almost every-day occurrence; and here the testimony of the tomb stone is admitted to be of the greatest weight. Neither is this testimony impeached, in that the eulogies blazoned in the epitaph are but too often at variance with veracity. The truth of the fact in the one case is by no means impugned by the inaccuracy of the statement in the other. The latter, too, is not without an excuse. It most frequently springs from affection: it has its root in feelings which are honorable to human nature, which, it is to be hoped, are part and parcel Of it; for, as with all other earthly blessings, so with relatives and friends and associates, we feel their full value only when deprived of them. It may be that they are then estimated unduly; but hard and unenviable must be the heart of him who would not wish the merits of the deceased to be engraved on brass, and their failings traced in the dust, with which their bodies are commingled. Religion may command, and Morality may enjoin, but Humanity will reluct antly consent, that they should both together equally, as far as memory is concerned, be consigned to their drear abode, Where they alike in trembling hope repose, The bosom of their father and their God.
