A mural monument in Bexley church is thus inscribed:
"Near this place
are deposited the remains
of
Katharine Harris, widow, who departed
this life,
18th Nov. 1787, aged 87 years:
By her first husband, Laurence Holker,
of Gravesend, M. D.
(deceased 21st June, 1738, aged 46.) .
she has left issue, one son, Laurence,
and a daughter, Catharina, wife of John Thorpe, Esq. F.S.A.
She was afterwards married to Thomas Harris, A. M.
Rector of Gravesend, and Vicar of Northfleet;
who died 27th Dec. 1762, aged 67.
By her good sense, right principles,
kind disposition, and discreet conduct,
in every relation of her long extended life,
she deserved and acquired constant regard;
And to the last hour was loved and honoured by her family
with unabated affection and reverence."
In the above monumental character no notice is taken of the family of this truly good old lady. Katharine Allen was the grand-daughter of Thomas Penyston, esq. of Rochester, lineally descended from Sir Thomas Penyston, bart. 1611, seated at Halsted-place, Kent; mentioned in Guiflim's Heraldry, p. 427. Camden also, in his " Remains," p. 403, goes further back with his family, where he gives an Epitaph, in Rochester cathedral, " upon
Master Thomas Penyston, one of the clerks of the council to
Queen Elizabeth," where he is styled " a gentleman of an antient
fenrily, and allied to many more."
