      Hic jacet Robertus Flack Generosus |
      ad legem Attornatus cum primis sedulous |
      et in rebus agendas solertiâ adeo spectatâ, |
      ut Vicini fere omnes in ambiguo haerentes |
      ad ejus consilium exquirendum confluxere |
      Hinc opes haud tenues sine invidia cumulavit, |
      Quae domi suae moderto indies spendebat usu, |
      Inq pauperum victum atq solamen rendundabit. |
      Publicis precibus et concionibus assidue interfuit, |
      tanta cum gravitate, et reverential tanta, |

      ut ipsum incuris et nogotiis publicis ses laxavit, |
      ut Deo, demum animaeq saluti, totus vacaret. |
      Obiit Anno Febr 17, 1704 Aetatus 74 |
      Juxta sepelitur Anna Flack, |
      Hujus Robert Uxor dilecta, |
      Quae Viri desiderium non ferens, |

      Translation:
      Here lies Robert Flack Gentleman
      an attentive Attorney
      skilful at what must be done to such a degree that it must be seen to be believed,
      in the presence of others he would stick to the task, search for a solution, offer advice by bringing them together
      His influence was never slight and without disrespect he would finish off the task
      He would control the house by using his experience?
      He was a source of comfort and generous to the poor.
      Constantly interested in public prayer
      With so great dignity and reverence for all,
      He would meet trouble head-on
      Finally, his soul is wished to God, to be free.
      Died 17 Feb 1704 aged 74
      Next buried Anna Flack, Robert?s beloved wife.
      Whose loss cannot be considered.
      Buried 24 July 1705
