Excerpt from A History of the Ancient Church of Porlock: And of the Patron Saint, St. Dubricius, and His Times

About thirteen years ago Mrs. Halliday, of Glenthorne, being much struck with the beauty of the great Monument in Porlock Church, determined to investigate its history. There had always been a tradition handed down from sexton to sexton that the Effigies were those of a Lord Harington and his wife, the Lady of Porlock. But neither Colinson, the Historian of Somerset, nor Savage, in his 'History of the Hundred of Carhampton,' knew anything of it, and the former speaks of it as the Tomb of a Knight Templar, through he does not explain how a wife happened to be there! But investigation proved the truth of the tradition, as is shown in the beautifully illustrated volume entitled 'The Porlock Monuments,' now, unfortunately, out of print.
