Note
Written on the memorial: Sacred to the memory of Percy Burrell, Captain in the 6th regiment of Dragoon Guards, 4th son of Sir William Burrell Bt. of Knepp Castle in the county of Sussex, and Sophia, eldest daughter of Sir Charles Raymond Bt. This gallant officer was born 05/07/1779 and at the ill concerted and fatal attack on Buenos-Ayres on 05/07/1807, afforded an example of that self-devotion so frequent in the military annals of this country, for whilst leading the column of dismounted cavalry. After this untimely fall of his superior officer Lt. Col. Kington, and whilst in the act of encouraging by his intrepid example the exertions of his men who were exposed to most destructive fire, he was mortally wounded by a musket shot. Thus fell in the career of honour and the prime of life this brave and accomplished gentleman, regretted and lamented by all who knew the excellent qualities of his heart and mind and by none more truly than his fellow soldiers. His two surviving brothers have caused this monument to be erected as a tribute of respect to departed worth and a mournful testimony of their fraternal affection.
