    The parish church in Kirby Stephen, Cumbria has a handsome stone-built portico at its entrance. The pediment of this has the following inscription:
    Built
    by direction of the
    Will of John Waller Esq
    A Purser in his Majesty’s Navy
    and a Native of the Town
    1810

    As pursers were not generally known for their philanthropy, I wonder if any member has any information on this individual.
