A plaque on the N wall of the chancel records that the founders were daughters of Sir John Beckett bart, the Revd George Urquart vicar, Mr Thomas Midgley, churchwarden. The extensive use of the Beckett family name throughout the church compensates for the lack of any inscription on the family burial vault to the east (qv).
