Being in Belbroughton Churchyard Worcestershire is a fine Tombstone to the memory of Paradise Buckler (who died in 1815),the daughter of a Gypsy King. the pomp that attended her funeral is well remembered by many of the inhabitants. One of my relatives said how the Gipsies borrowed from her a dozen of the finest damask napkins(for the coffin handles)_ none but those of the very best quality being accepted for the purpose-- and that they were duly returned,beautifully "got up"
and scented. the king and his family were encamped in a lane near to my relative's house, and his daughter a young girl of fifteen died in the camp. Cuthbert Bede.
