Scope and Content

Inscription of either Arthur or Edmund Poole in the Beauchamp Tower. They were the grandsons of George, duke of Clarence and therefore had a claim to the throne through the Yorkist line. They were kept imprisoned in the Tower until their deaths in 1570. Arthur Poole was buried in the Chapel of St Peter ad Vincula.

The inscription is shown with the numbers set against it by Anthony Salvin in the late 19th century.
