The inscription below the bust reads:
Here lies Alice South whose life had weathered sixty winters when it ceased its lingering course.  Though wooed by the flower of youth and a troop of nobles, she remained for fourteen years in lonely widowhood, out of affection for her children, to whom, rejecting a second marriage, she made over ere death took her, her fortune unimpaired - all her fortune, that is, save what had been devoured by the parasite and wretched crowd of suitors who haunted her hospitable walls. Happy children to whom but for her request would have fallen sorrow and sighing in place of ease she bequeathed to them. 'Husband take and keep me in the tomb' were her dying words, then passed into the funeral urn the ashes of a thus dutiful wife. Died 3 May 1605
