When Enfield Church was repaired in 1789, the batchments were removed; and the hatchment containing the arms of Dr. Uvedale impaled with those of his wife, (Mary, second daughter of Edward Stephens, esq.of Cherrington, co.

One of the escuteheons used at the Doctor's Funeral is now in my possession ; as is also the very car rious funeral escutcheon of Oliver Cromwell, which Dr. Uvedale (in 1658, when at Westminster under Dr. Busby,) snatched from the bier of the Protector ; and an account of which is given in Gent.
