Anne Fleming & Catherine Jennis

"Another [memorial] from the end of the [XVIII] century is the lovely monument to Catherine Jennis and her friend Anne Fleming, who are buried together in their vault in Wiveton parish church in Norfolk, at the foot of the steps to the communion table." Alan Bray

You can read: Near this monument and in the same vault with the remains of her much respected friend Mrs Catherine Jennis is interred the body of Mrs Anne Fleming, spinster, daughter of John Fleming gent and Sarah his wife late of Great Snoring. She died Jan 16th 1796 aged 73. In her were united the true Characters of a pious and charitable Christian and a kind and sincere Friend.

Catherine Jennis is buried near Anne, and in her memorial you can read: Here lieth interred the body of Catherine, the wife of Edmund Garrett (died 1712) who departed this life the 15th of January in the year of our Lord 1727, aged 61 years. Also Mrs Catherine Jennis, daughter of the aforesand Edmund and Catherine Garrett, she departed this life December 19, 178?, in the 75 year of her age.

Inside the church of St. Mary Virgin in Great Snoring, on a marble monument, are inscribed memorials to the FLEMING family:
Ambrose Fleming, died August 30, 1721, aged 78 years (1643-1721);
his wife Ann, died May 23, 1713, aged 75 years (1638-1713);
their son John Fleming, died May 24, 1764, aged 90 years (1674-1764);
his wife Sarah Fleming, died May 31, 1759, aged 66 years (1693-1759);
their sons:
John, died April 4, 1779, aged 53 years (1726-1779);
Richard Fleming, died August 26, 1777, aged 48 years (1729-1777);
his wife Sarah, died March 29, 1797, aged 68 years (1729-1797);
their son John Fleming, gent, died February 5, aged 73 years;
his wife Frances, died March 15, 1834, aged 77 years (1757-1834);
their daughter Ann, died May 3, 1787, aged 4 years and 5 months (1783-1787);

Anne Fleming (1723-1796) has to be the daughter of John Fleming (1674-1764) and Sarah Fleming (1693-1759) and therefore the sister of John Fleming (1726-1779) and Richard Fleming (1729-1777). The Fleming family is buried inside the church of St. Mary Virgin in Great Snoring, while Anne and Catherine are buried in their vault in Wiveton parish church in Norfolk, with other relatives of Catherine, from the Garrett family. The two churches are less than 15 miles far.

Days of Love chronicles more than 700 LGBT couples throughout history, spanning 2000 years from Alexander the Great to the most recent winner of a Lambda Literary Award. Many of the contemporary couples share their stories on how they met and fell in love, as well as photos from when they married or of their families. Included are professional portraits by Robert Giard and Stathis Orphanos, paintings by John Singer Sargent and Giovanni Boldini, and photographs by Frances Benjamin Johnson, Arnold Genthe, and Carl Van Vechten among others. “It's wonderful. Laying it out chronologically is inspired, offering a solid GLBT history. I kept learning things. I love the decision to include couples broken by death. It makes clear how important love is, as well as showing what people have been through. The layout and photos look terrific.” Christopher Bram “I couldn’t resist clicking through every page. I never realized the scope of the book would cover centuries! I know that it will be hugely validating to young, newly-emerging LGBT kids and be reassured that they really can have a secure, respected place in the world as their futures unfold.” Howard Cruse “This international history-and-photo book, featuring 100s of detailed bios of some of the most forward-moving gay persons in history, is sure to be one of those bestsellers that gay folk will enjoy for years to come as reference and research that is filled with facts and fun.” Jack Fritscher
