"That the fame of Sir John Shurley, of Isfield, in the County of Sussex, Knight, may be precious in the memory of all men, till the change of the last man, be it delivered to posterity, that Sir John Shurley, Knight, was of an ancient family, of a magnanimous heart, of an exemplary industry, of a justice beyond exception, and that he was stout in good causes, yea, and good in all causes.
His first wife was daughter unto Sir Thomas Shurley, of Wiston, Knight, by whom he had two sonnes and seven daughters. The sonnes and two daughters are called into Heaven, and the five living into several marriages of good quality.
His second wife was daughter to George Goring, of Danny, Esq., Receiver of the Court of Wards, and aunt to the Right Hon. the Lord Goring, Master of the Horse to the Queene, and received into all men's affections. She was the widow of Sir Henry Bowyer, of Cuckfield, in the County of Sussex, Knight; she was a merit beyond most of her time, for her purse was open to a prophet's name; her pitty was the clothing of the poore, her piety the mother of her practice, her devotions were her daily offerings to God, her mercy sure against condemnation, and all her minutes were but steppes to Heaven.
The above named Sir John Shurley, (being Deputie Lieutenant and Justice of the Peace and Coram of the County of Sussex), deceased at Lewes the 25th April, Anno Domini, 1631"
