It is to the memory of a “Mr Gyles Bateson" and "M"* Isabella Bateson,” his widow. (See inscr. on 2ud bell) (Many years ago a house was broken into at Pocklington, and the thieves removed a pannel from the side of this tomb and hid the stolen goods therein, where they remained for a long period. Some passerby seeing a pannel was loose gave it a push and the nefariously hidden articles were thus discovered.)

The Grammar School at Pocklington owes its origin to a religious society consisting of a master, two wardens, brethren and sisters, incorporated by the title of “The Fraternity or Guild of the Name of Jesus, and of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and of Saint Nicholas the bishop, in the parish church of Pocklington, in the county of York; founded by John Dowman, Doctor of Laws."

Dr. Dowman also left lands to the value of 20 marks (£13 6s. 8d.) to the master and wardens “to find a fit man sufficiently learned in grammatical science to instruct and teach all scholars resorting to the town of Pocklington, to be taught according to the statutes and ordinances of the said John Dowman, and to perform other works of piety at the discretion of the master and wardens, and to maintain other duties from time to time incumbent on the said fraternity or guild.”

None of Dr. Dowman's statutes now exist, and there are no records left of the guild, which continued until 1547, when it was dissolved by Act of Parliament in the first year of Edward VI., and later on its revenues were devoted to continue the Grammar School.
