In remembrance of Hannah, lamented daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth Jordan of this parish, who died November 18th 1854 aged 22 years.

“My fragrant, blooming flower hath drooped and fallen.
A base deceiver with his hellish acts and lying tongue;
My peace hath slain and all my family o’erwhelm’d with grief.”

With love’s sweet name upon his demon lips.
With banns and promises and flattering tales,
Her confidence he gained, her ruin sealed.

Seduc’d, betray’d, her tender heart he broke.
Her body to an early tomb consign’d;
Her loving soul to realms of bliss has fled.
