36 Church Plaque, St Edmund's Church, Dolton, Devon. In the family vault beneath are interred the mortal remains of Peter Wellington Furse, clerk, who died Febry. VIII, MDCCCXXXII aged LXXVI. Also of Mary his wife who died Decr. X. MDCCCXLVI aged LXXXVI.
This tablet was erected to their pious memory by their son John Henry Furse.

John Henry Furse son of P.W. and Mary Furse died Aug I. MDCCCLIV aged LIX. It is interesting to note that the date Mary Furse's year of death on this plaque is 1846 when the correct year was 1845, at least her death was registered as occurring in that year. Moreover, had she died in December 1846 she would have been 87 years old and not 86 as is recorded on this plaque. Perhaps her son John, when he came in later years to erect the plaque, made the mistake or possibly the mason carving the inscription slipped in the extra numeral.
