"This Edward Burton was a zealous Protestant in the days of Queen Mary, and on that account essayed many hair-breadth escapes, which is to be lamented Fox the martyrologist has not related where he thus spoke of him. 'The like example of charitable affection in these Catholic churchmen is also to be sene and noted in the burying of one Master Edward Burton, esquire, who in the same diocese of Chester, departying out of this world the very day before Queene Elizabeth was crowned, required of his friends as they would answer for it that his bodye should be buried in his parish churche (which was St. Chadde's in Shrewsbury), and that no masse monger should be present there which thing being declared to the curate of that parish named Sir John Marshall, an the bodye being withall brought to the buring upon the same daye that the Queene was crowned, the curate being therewith offended, sayd playnly that he should not be buried in the church there, whereupon one of his friendes named George Torpelley answerying agayne, sayd that God would judge him in his owne garden, where he is no doubt as neare the kingdom of heaven as if he had bene buried in the middest of the church.'.........." - A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Commoners of Great ..., Volume 4 By John Burke
