    • "A similar phrase ("juxta usitatam ecclesise Anglican* computationem" ["the use of the Church of England reckoning"]) occurs on the next slab, that of Hugh Poyntz, who died as a young man in March 1604. * * * The three here named, Edward, Hugh, and Robert, were sons of Sir Nicholas Poyntz of Iron Acton, by his second wife, the Lady Margaret Stanley, daughter of Edward, 3rd Earl of Derby."

      "Sir Nicholas Poyntz married secondly Margaret Stanley, daughter by his second wife of Edward third Earl of Derby, whose splendour and eminent services are eulogised by Camden and other his contemporaries. She was the relict of John Jermyn of Eushbrook, co. Somerset, by whom she had no issue. By this lady Sir Nicholas Poyntz had issue :?1, Edward, born in 1575; 2, Hugh, born 1578; 3, Robert, born 1580."
