Date sent: Fri, 19 Oct 2001 20:30:29 +0100 Blank To Whom It May Concern Not sure if anybody is interested but here goes :- I made a visit to 'High Roding' church in Essex, UK today in the hope that I might see something of interest to some Josselyn, Joslin, Jocelyn clan members as I remember seeing this village name crop up (mentioned) elsewhere. High Roding Church The oldest sighted grave that I could find was in circ. of 1857 although many that may have been graves, were overgrown with weeds etc. In truth, I saw very few graves but it is a small village ...blink and you miss it ... and the church is down a well worn farm track right under the flight path to Stanstead Airport ... no peace for the dead.... ( and quite a distance from the village as it is now ) Not really sure what I expected to find, so wasn't too disappointed. Took a few photos for nostalgia ! Ventured on to Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire. Eventually found 'Great St. Mary's Church' after asking for some directions (funny really, as I could see it from miles away, but couldn't find it when I was just a few hundred yards away !!). At the main entrance gates to the church and graveyard is a notice board with some brief information about the location of graves & some famous people buried there one of which :- Grave No. 3 John Strange Joscelyne 4th Earl of Roden Great Hyde Hall Married Sophia daughter of Lord Broughton I had a look round the graveyard and found the burial plot which to me, is still well kept (in comparison to some) the following words on the tombstone {anything with "-" beside it and a ? are my ideas as some letters or some words are missing} In loving memory of John Strange 5th Earl of Roden Lt. Colonel in the Scots Guards He served in the Crimean Campaign and was at the battles of the Alma Balaclava and Inkerman Knight of the Legion of Honour and of the Medjidie Died 3rd July 1897 aged 74 years Deeply mourned by his sorrowing wife and daughter beloved and regretted "B"y ? all who knew him. Blessed are the dead "TH"at ? die in the Lord also of Sophia daughter of Lord Broughton and wife of John Strange 5th Earl of Roden of Tullymore Park, Co. Down and "????" Hyde Hall, Sawbridgeworth Died 3rd December 1916 aged 8"4" ? I am the resurrection and the life, he that believeth on me though he were dead yet shall he live "??" From here, I suggest that one and all go to the following web site :- www.englishchurch.org which might keep you interested and make the following more ... The memorial brass plate that somebody asked me to look for is on the floor covered with a rug to protect it. Brass rubbings described on the web site can be undertaken. A notice on the wall states :- 'Brass of Jeffrey (JEFFREY) Jocelyn (died 1470/71) and his first wife Katherine and second wife Joan. (((((This is located in the oldest part of the church which dates back at least to the 12th Century)))) The epitaph, already damaged in the 17th century is in Latin. In English it would read as follows :- Here lie Jeffrey Jocelyn and Katherine and Joan, his wives, which Jeffrey died 20th January A.D. 1470/1 on whose souls have mercy God, amen. Jeffrey is in civilian dress, a long tunic with loose but simple sleeves, with a rosary hanging at his belt. Both wives are dressed alike in costume that shows the exaggerations of fashion. The fur trimmed neckline of their tunics is cut so low that it is caught under the girdle : beneath is worn the more modest kirtle. The sleeves end in large cuffs also of fur, and above all is set the 'Butterfly' headdresses of the time. Also in the corner of this part of the church (High Altar) is a tomb with the following :- Tomb of John Jocelyn (died 1525) and his wife Philippa in the wall above the tomb is the epitaph ((((note I = J .... i think !) Heare Lyeth Iohn Iocelyn esq. and Philippa his wife which Iohn dyed ao dom : 1525 Evidently Philippa did not die for many years after her husband, for this monument is plainly of the early years of the reign of Elizabeth 1st. She was the daughter of a William Bradbury. There are various other 'busts' and figurines in the church of which I could have spent all day there if I had had the time to write everything down. I did or have attempted to take photos of everything to do with the 'clan' much of which is mentioned on the above web site. I was given a free booklet with the history of the church with various photos etc. and will attempt to scan it to anybody who is interested ???? it does have about 40 pages (about half of which are adverts !) so will take a bit of time. I also paid for another booklet 'Monumental Inscriptions' Great Saint Mary's, Sawbridgeworth. This booklet (I think, although haven't had chance to read it all yet !!!!!!!!) gives a grid location / position of all people buried in the graveyard and gives at least 13 burial sites under the name 'Jocelyn' and also states to see the name 'Roden' Having just had a quick look, this book explains who is buried at each location. Now while I was inside, I got 'collared' (like you do) by the verger and received a guided tour etc. He is the one who gave me the above web site address. He did ask me to make a plea on the clan web site on behalf of the church, so I would appreciate it, if somebody who has the know how and time etc. The verger stated that they need funds ! The roof needs replacement and in fact whilst I was there, both the inside and outside had scaffold up. The last time the roof was repaired was in 1850-1860 by Mr. H. Rivers of Rivers Nursery. The verger reckons that the present new roof will cost about £ 300,000 (give or take a few £'s). If it isn't restored sooner rather than later, then you do not need to be Einstein to figure the rest out ! Mr. D. Thomas ( the Verger / Historian ) 36 The Four Acres Sawbridgeworth. Hertfordshire CM21 9LT UK Lay Reader Mrs. Diana Kitson 11 The Forebury Sawbridgeworth. Hertfordshire. UK Now having said all that, its up to all you Josselyns, Jocelyns, Joslins out there what you do about it ! (This is not my church and I am not related to the 'clan' ). After the visit and photographic session in the church, I went and played 'Tourist' at GHH (Great Hyde Hall) Soon after parking the car in the visitors car park, I met Jos‚e the gardener who was at GHH when it was a school (which my wife went to). I did ask him this time, if, over the course of his years as a gardener at GHH he had ever come across some stones in a circle on the right hand side of the driveway. He said he hadn't personally seen them, but the previous gardener pre 1972 said that there was a burial plot in this location surrounded by Yew trees thought to be of Sir Strange Jocelyn. (This was also stated by the Verger at the church when we were talking about Sir Strange Jocelyn and his supposed burial site etc.). I had another walk round GHH and took a few more photos and then the heavens opened up again. (I'm just sure Sir Strange Jocelyn doesn't like this place being photographed as every time I go, it pours with rain !). That's it for now. I think I deserve a pint or two ... I've done my bit for now ... next ??????? The film should go in for developing tomorrow and I might be able to get them back by mid week all being well. If I get chance I'll scan the booklet to you (who ever you are ???) Rgds Brian
