"Fridswide Gilbert to the grave
Hath resigned her earthly part,
Her sovle to God, that first it gave,
On angels wings went with her hart.
A vertvovs maide she livd and died,
Hvrtful to none but good to all,
Religious, modest, hating pride,
These vertves crowne her funerall.
John Gilbert, marchant taylor of Londo, brother to her."
