A.D. 1632.--------------------- X ----------------Here lies the pillar of hospitality and the home of affection. Renowned for his talents, remarkable for his eloquence,
The glory of his country, suppressor of all strife, a lover of peace,
The rule of justice, the model of piety.
Hurley was an enemy to enemies, a friend to friends
Maurice adjusted things according to the times.
The touch of faith, the support of the afflicted, a jewel among men
The glory of his ancient stock.
In him was truth and probity, blessed with a faultless
body, in himself he united a thousand gifts of nature
Those had'st lived happy in this world, mayst-thou live
happy for ever happy in fortune and in a noble progeny
Live now with God, with whom to live is life, thus with God's
grace wilt-thou have life eternal.
