Cattistock Church, Stone
Catistock Church. Around the verge of a flat stone, upon a tomb is the following inscription:
"Hie jacet Guilielmus Bishop, nuper de Holwaye, cum Brida, uxore sua ante annos novem prius defuncta: oblit 26 due Decembris 1621, acetatis suae 83."
Bride, daughter of Alexander of Wolcomb buried 1613.
The church of St. Mary the Virgin stands at the foot of Bubb Down which derives its name from Bubba, a Saxon, who lived there. The presence of a Saxon font in Melbury Bubb church suggests that there has been a church here from very early days. Nothing remains prior to 1474 when the church was rebuilt during the time of the Rector Walter Buckler (brother of John of Causeway), whose initials are carved on some shieldson the tower. This tower, so beautiful against the hill, is almost all that remains of his church. The rest was virtually rebuilt in 1854, probably reproducing the main features of the older church and incorporating some of the stained glass.
The grave of Alexander Buckler, is just outside and opposite the church door. The Buckler family at one time lived in the Old Manor House next to the Church. A descendant of the family still lives in the parish at Holywell. Next to Alexander's tomb is the tomb of his grandson Thomas who died in 1634.
