"In this part of the area [immediately in front of the communion-table [OF THE CHURCH AT KINGSTON-ON-THAMES], on a blue-colored slab, is an almost obliterated inscription in memory of Mrs. Mary Morton, widow of George Morton, of East-Ware in Kent, esq.; and mother of Sir Robt. Morton, knt., sometime captain in the Netherlands; Col. Sir Thos. Morton, knt.; and Sir Albert Morton, knt., principal secretary to King Charles I.
"Mrs. Mary Morton died in April, 1634. She was the daughter of Robert Honywood, of Charing, in Kent (and afterwards of Marks Hall, in Essex), esq., by Mary, his wife, "the wonder of her sex and this age, for she lived to see near 400 issued from her loines.'""
"In the church at Lenham, in Kent, a little village between Ashford and Maidstone, is an inscribed brass in memory of Richard Thompson, esq., who died in 1642." He was grandchild to that truly religious matron Mary Honywood, who had at her decease, lawfully descended, 367 children; 16 of her own body, 114 grand-children, 228 in the 3rd generation, nine in the fourth; whose renown lives with her posterity, whose body lies in this church, and whose monument may be seen at Mark's Hall, in Essex, where she exchanged Life for Life." — Mrs. Honywood died in 1620, in the 93rd year of her age."
