I saw this memorial in Cirencester Parish Church while on holiday a few weeks ago. According to the information provided in the church, Hodgkinson Paine died in one of the first battles of the English Civil War (though the date of his death is six months before Charles I raised the royal standard, so it must just have been a local skirmish as tensions mounted).
The memorial features a short poem which relies heavily on various puns involving the word “Paine”, by someone who had clearly decided to try their hand at being a metaphysical poet ;-). Here is a version with slightly modernised spelling for ease of reading:
HERE LYETH BURIED THE BODY OF HODGKINSON
PAINE, CLOTHIER, WHO DIED THE 3RD OF FEB 1642
The poor’s supply his life and calling graced,
till wars made rent and PAINE from poor displaced.
But what made poor unfortunate PAINE blessed,
by war they lost their PAINE yet found no rest.
He losing quiet by war yet gainèd ease,
by it PAINE’S life began and pains did cease.
And from the troubles here him God did sever
by death to life, by war to peace, for ever.
