bullet  General Notes:

Temperance always found means to perform great and generous actions. She rebuilt a considerable part of the Castle on the site of the keep of the ancient castle, and gave to the Church of Odell, a Pulpit Cloth and Cushion of crimson relief embroidered with her cypher and paternal crest, and a Silver Plate for the Service of the Altar.
