Frampton, Mary

Mary was the third daughter of Richard Frampton of Biddestone, Wiltshire, who was described as a ‘prominent papist’ in the area. Mary died on 6th September 1698 at Mr Hussy’s house, Bath (The Bell Tree house), a lodging held in trust by the Hussy family of Marnhull, Dorset, and administered by the Benedictine Order for the benefit of Catholics visiting Bath. Mary had family connections with the Pastons of Norfolk (see Window 4, the benefactor’s window) and hence to the family of John Dryden’s wife. Mary’s eldest sister, Jane, married Edward Paston of Barnington after the death of his first wife Margaret (nee Eyre). Mary’s eldest sister, Catherine, who erected this wall tablet, married Charles, the third son of William, eleventh Earl of Stourton.
