Brasses in Church in Chalgrove, 8 May 1999

Pictures from two trips.

By the way, on our trip to England last June, we visited Thame, Oxon, and were delighted to find that a church where the Quartermans played such a leading role continues to be today a very active, vital church. In order to see the Quarterman tombs there, we had to clear out a section of their Christian bookstore! The history of the church says that the tomb of Thomas Quarterman used to be called the "Poor Corner" because the offerings for the poor were laid there — and it continues to be a spot of vibrant actvity. Praise God! I truly loved the town of Thame.

We also visited St. Mary's church in Chalgrove, and made some brass rubbings in the chancel. The pastor told me they were Quartermans, but I have some doubts. I'm still trying to decipher the Old Latin inscriptions! Do you know anything about them? I also noted the Quarterman plaques there. The info on you web page was really helpful, since I had a taxi waiting impatiently, and I only have one hour to see and film it all. It was FUN! I'll tell you later about my eventful trip to Rycote Chapel. [Inside Rycote Chapel]

Dear John,

Greetings from Ukraine.

I noted on your site a few broken links on the page http://www.quarterman.org/pictures/clay/index.html from "Brasses in Church in Chalgrove, June 1998"

My email address there is also now outdated - I no longer have <clay@paco.net>

I also see that the Chalgrove church now has a nice site with pictures. http://www.chalgrovechurch.org/stmarys_church.html

As I suspected, the brasses are not Quartermans. That's one of the things I was pretty sure of in the Latin - it was the Barantyn family: Drew Barantyn, Esq. & wives Joan & Dame Beatrix - 1446. And the single figure is Reginald Barantyn, Esq - 1441.


But the Quartermans are still represented there: the plaque on the wall above the pulpit lists the Adeane families in 1685 - 1750, mentioning at the end that they "became possessors of Chalgrove Manor by marriage with the family of Quartermaine."

At the rear of the church, above the baptismal font, there is a plaque to Robert Quatremaine:

"Robert Quatremaine,
Gentleman, who died at the
Manor House of Langley Hall
in Chalgrove in the County of Oxon
lyes buried here.
And Elizabeth his wife and Richard and Robert
[hi]s sons and Ciceley his daughter, the wife of
.n Sims and Elizabeth the daughter of Robert
Quatremaine and wife of Alexander Hawkins,
.n [Ann?] and Martha, the children of Alexander and
.zabeth Hawkins and Martha Wade the
[G]randdaughter of Frances the wife of
Robert Quatremaine Junior who in the me
mory of the above written persons caused
[this] monument to be made in the year of
[our] Lord 1692. This Quatremaine is near
[rel]ated to Richard Quatremaine Duke of
[G]loster who lyeth inte'd in Tame church,
who built Ricut.
Near this place lyeth also interd the
body of Robert Quatremaine Gent
the son of Richard & Martha Quatre
-maine who died the 15th
day of December 1697,
aged 47 years."
(And note the 4-handed Quarterman coat of arms at the top.)

A few blocks from the church is Quarterman Road. (You can see that on Google Maps.)

I still haven't digitized all my photos from that trip. Maybe someday.. Sincerely Yours, Clay

2011 Chalgrove pictures

From: John S. Quarterman
To: Clay Quarterman
Date: 8 July 2011

There is a letter-for-letter transcription of the Chalgrove Robert Quatremaine plaque on page 11 of the green book, Quarterman Family of Liberty County, Georgia and Relatives. Your pictures of the plaque look about the same as when I transcribed it in August 1994.

Robert's coat of arms is one of four represented on page 10 of the green book. It's the bottom right one on this web page.

Richard Quatremaine was not actually "Duke of [G]loster"; he worked for the Duke of York. Apparently his cousin Robert's daughter-in-law misremembered that history.


The Duke of York in question was also the Duke of Gloucester, and is more commonly known by his later royal name, Richard III, the king Shakespear depicted so unflatteringly.
