The History Of WhitbyThe Huntrodds Gravestone

The Huntrodds Gravestone can be found at the rear of St Marys Church. The very unusual inscription reads

“Here lies the bodies of Francis Huntrodds and his wife Mary who were both born on the same day of the week month and year September ye 19th 1600 married on the day of their birth and after having had 12 children born to them died aged 80 years on the same day of the year they were born ye September 19th 1680 the one not above five hours before ye other.

Husband and wife that did 12 children bare, dyed the same day alike both aged were bout 80 years they lived did part (even on the marriage day) each tender heart so fit a match surely could never be both in their lives and in their deaths agree.

    Better be careful on the 19th September from now on then!! Perhaps worry about that when you’re nearing 80 though……!!

    I took a little group from Cameroon, DRC and Nigeria up there yesterday to show them my favourite gravestone. They were in absolute awe and we did wonder if there are any of their relations still around – so thank you, Adam, for answering the question. I would love to know more about their story.
