Additional remarks
Additional remarks • The abbreviation lines for the letters 'n' and 'm' were either not put in or have worn away. • Muschart (1917) reads 'Herick Lerick'. 'Betick' (i.e. Bentinck) is however more plausible as surname, also given the genealogy of the family and the heraldry depicted on the slab.
