Thomas Chiffinch (1600-1666)

Thomas Chiffinch [or Cheffin] was buried on 10 April 1666 in the south transept, near to the monument of Isaac Casaubon. The Latin inscription on his rather worn gravestone can be translated:

“Here lies Thomas Chiffinch, from his tenderest years a faithful servant, in good fortune and bad, to His Most Serene Majesty Charles II, and thence appointed Comptroller to the Royal Excise [Treasuries], a man of notable honesty and probity. He died on 8th April 1666”. and a biography
