Henry Malone

It is interesting to trace the changes in the monumental mason’s art through the ages. Some of the pioneer stones of the 1840s and 50s were lettered in almost primitive style showing that the mason was either illiterate or unskilled with no idea of arrangement. Names had begun with small letters, no space allowed between words, and some names turned over to the succeeding line. One inscription in particular is such an example. It was intended to read ‘Malone of Ashby,’ but the workman was stuck for space and through running the letters into one word he has made it read ‘MALONEOFASHBY’,  the ’BY’ being crammed into tiny letters half the space of an ordinary letter.
