NEAR THIS SPOT, IN THE ADJOINING CEMETERY, ARE DEPOSITED THE REMAINS OF EDWARD BAKER, MIDSHIPMAN IN THE ROYAL NAVY OF GREAT BRITAIN, SECOND SON OF WILLIAM BAKER OF BAYFORDBURY, IN THE COUNTY OF HERTFORD, BY SOPHIA, THIRD DAUGHTER OF JOHN CONYERS, LATE OF COPPED HALL IN THE COUNTY OF ESSEX. A YOUTH WHOSE RARE ENDOWMENTS BY NATURE, IMPROVED BY EDUCATION, AND CONFIRMED BY THE EXAMPLE AND INSTRUCTION OF HIS COMMANDER, COMMODORE JOHN THOMAS DUCKWORTH, GAVE THE FAIREST PROMISE TO HIS COUNTRY (HAD IT PLEASED THE ALMIGHTY TO SPARE HIS LIFE), OF A DISTINGUISHED CHRISTIAN HERO, AND TRUELY VALUABLE MAN, INITIATED IN THE PROFESSION OF HIS CHOICE. WITH THESE ADVANTAGES, HE SERVED ON BOARD THE ORION, IN THE MEMORABLE ACTION OF THE 3d OF JUNE 1794, AND SHARED, WITH SINGULAR MERIT, IN THE GLORIES OF THAT IMPORTANT DAY. WITH EQUAL GALLANTRY, BUT LESS PROPITIOUS FORTUNE, UNDER THE SAME RESPECTABLE OFFICER, ON THE 21st OF MARCH 1796, HE WAS ENGAGED IN THE ATTACK MADE BY THE LEVIATHAN, AND AFRICA, ON THE FORTS OF LEOGANE, IN THE ISLAND OF ST DOMINGO, BUT YIELDING ALAS! TO THE FATIGUES OF THAT DISASTROUS SERVICE, SUCCEEDED BY THE PREVAILING MALADY OF THE CLIMATE, HE CLOSED A BRILLIANT CAREER OF HONOUR AND VIRTUE, IN THE 17th YEAR OF HIS AGE.
IF HARD INDEED HIS LOT, AND PREMATURE HIS FALL, DEPRIVED IN THAT AWEFUL MOMENT OF THE CONSOLING CARE OF HIS DEAREST RELATIVES, YET HAPPY AT LEAST IN THIS, THAT WITH FACULTIES UNIMPAIRED, AND HOPEFUL OF THE BLISS WHICH AWAITED HIM, HE BREATHED HIS LAST IN THE ARMS OF HIS PROTECTOR AND FRIEND, AND WAS ATTENDED TO THE GRAVE, BY THE UNFEIGNED TEARS, AND HEARTFELT SIGHS OF THE COMPANIONS OF HIS NAVAL FORTUNES THE ZEALOUS ADMIRERS OF HIS EXCELLENCE AND CHARACTER.

HE was Member of Assembly for Kingston in 1691 and 1701.
UNDERNEATH THIS MARBLE ARE INTER'D THE REMAINS OF THE HONOURABLE JAMES LAWRENCE OF FAIRFIELD IN THE PARISH OF ST. JAMES, ESQ. WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 1756 IN THE 47th YEAR OF HIS AGE. HE WAS BURIED THERE 16th JUNE.
COLONEL JAMES LAWRENCE was Custos Rotulorum of St. James's parish. By his wife Mary, daughter of Colonel Richard James, of Hanover (the first child born of English parents in Jamaica after its conquest), he had a numerous family.
Richard James Lawrence, his eldest son, married Mary, fourth daughter of Thomas Hall, of Kirkpatrick, a Member for the parish of Westmoreland in 1752. He died in London, Nov. 8, 1830, aged eighty-five years. Mr. R. J. Lawrence had five sons, viz., 1. James; 2. George; 3. Charles (who had issue: I. G. H. Lawrence, 2. Rev. C. W. Lawrence, 3. Major-General A. Lawrence; 4. Henry; 5. Frederick Augustus, Captain, and Gentleman of the P. Chamber to King George IV., when regent.
His eldest son was the late (Sir) James Lawrence, Knight of Malta, and author of several works, one of which, on the " Nobility of the British Gentry," is well known. George, the second son, was the late proprietor of Cowsfield House, near Salisbury.*
*Lineage:Henry Lawrence, President of the Council of State, under Cromwell, was of St. Ives, in Huntingdonshire, and came of an ancient family, a long account of which is to be found in the Gentleman's Magazine (1815 and 1829), Sir Egerton Brydge's edition of Milton, and other works. He married Amy, only daughter and heiress of Sir Edward Peyton, of Isleham (vide the " Extinct Baronetage"), and died in 1664. One of his daughters married an Earl of Barrymore, while Johnone, it is believed, of his seven sons emigrated to Barbados, with John Bradshaw, nephew of the regicide, and ultimately removed to Jamaica, about 1675. His (J. L.'s) will is dated May 10th, 1690. By his wife Jane, daughter of Collins, and relict of Richard Dunn, of Cabrete, he had three sons, of whom the eldest, John, married Susanna Petgrave, and by her, had six sons and three daughters. His third son, James Lawrence, of Fairfield, was the ancestor, as already stated, of the late (Sir) James Lawrence. i. The eldest daughter of John Lawrence and Susanna Petgrave was named Susanna. She married Lawrence Lawrence,* of a New England family (of his family there are records elsewhere), and had, with other children, Rachel, who married Henry Gordon,** and was mother of Anne Gordon, who, by her husband Alexander Edgar (buried in Edinburgh in 1820), had a numerous issue, and who is mentioned in the curious genealogical will of her aunt, the late Mrs. Catherine Franklyn, who died in London in 1831. 2. Rachael, the second daughter of John and Susanna Lawrence, married Jeremiah Downer. 3. Mary, the youngest daughter of John and Susanna Lawrence, married Philip Auglin [Anglin], and had a daughter, Elizabeth, who married, in 1765, Robert Scarlett, and was the mother of James Scarlett, created Baron Abinger. This very extensive family of Lawrence is necessarily connected with numerous other families,* more or less well known, and the records substantiating the descent of its various branches have been carefully preserved in Jamaica and elsewhere, but are of too voluminous a character to be enlarged upon here. However, a good account of them is to be found in part iii. of Roby's History of the Parish of St. James, ** who has, however, omitted several descents.
*Richards, Morris, Walcott, James, &c.
**After the annotator had made his collection, in 1857, he met with this portion of the work, but failed to discover the others.
*His will recorded in Jamaica, 1753. N.B. The author is only responsible for the above lineage from 1690.
**His will recorded in Jamaica, 1789. (Vide " Taaffe Notes. ") Alexander Edgar was the son of Alexander Edgar of Auchingramont, by his wife Margaret, daughter of James Edgar. His father (born 1698) was the.brother of Peter Edgar, of Bridgelands, Peebles (father-in-law of Sir H. Raeburn, the celebrated artist). Their mother's maiden name was Priscilla Handasyde. (For a notice of the latter peculiar surname vide Sinclair's " Survey, Parish of Hutton, Berwickshire.")
