Monument Erected in the Chancel of the beautiful Church of St. Stephen Walbrook, March 1773
|Main Creator:||Movre, I.F.|
The upper part of a memorial erected to Mrs. Mary Wilson, wife of Thomas Wilson, who died in 1772. It was put up the following year by her husband, who was the rector in the church of St. Mary Walbrook, in London, and whose name was subsequently inscribed on the monument after his death in 1784. The decoration on the monument shows a lady breast-feeding a child. She is flanked on one side by a child holding an anchor and on the other, by a figure holding a cross. Above the garlanded medallion containing these figures is an urn, the whole framed by drapes with a bowed ribbon in the pediment above.

An engraving of the plan and interior of the church can be seen at 2122 TX (6C).
This is less than half of a "fold-out" engraving, and the break does not correspond to one of the original folds in the magazine "The Gentleman's Magazine", from which it was taken, so how it came to be cut in half is not known.
Title inscribed u.c. on image.
Physical description: 1 print : engraving ; image 15.9 x 21.4 cm., within plate mark, on sheet 17.1 x 25.9 cm.
