Epitaph on a gravestone in the chancel of Halifax Parish Church


Hic
situm est corpus Thomæ, filii Jonath. Maud de Halyfax, M.A. qui
obiit Decemb. 22, A.D. 1682
   
Si mea cum matris valuissent vota, dedisses
Funus idem nobis, quod tibi, nate, damus.
Sed quoniam votis nostris Deus obstitit æquus,
Ante mea et matis funera, funus habe
   
Here is deposited the body of Thomas, son of Jonathan Maud.
of Halifax, MA who died 22nd December 1682
   
Had Heav'n vouchsaf'd to hear my parents' pray'r,
Their sad sepulchral rites had been thy care;
Impartial wisdom did the wish deny,
And took thee earlier to a world on high
