English: Elaborate memorial in St Michael and All Angels church in Lyndhurst, Hampshire. Designed and carved by John Flaxman. The inscription reads "To the memory of Sir Charles Philip Jennings, Bar, of Foxlease in this parish and of Duddlestone in the county of Salop. Endowed with every dignified and amiable quality that can make private life respected and beloved. This monument is erected by his afflicted sister, who feels too deeply the worth of the brother she has lost, the last of his family to speak that worth as it deserves: yet cannot deny herself the melancholy consolation of inscribing this stone with his name."

According to The Gentleman's Magazine (1789), Volume 58, Part 1, page 372, Sir Charles Philip Jennings died at Knightsbridge, 22 April 1788. He had recently succeeded his father, Sir Philip Jennings-Clerke, 1st Baronet who died in January of that year. Having no heir, the baronetcy died with Sir Charles. The sister (and "last of his family") who erected this memorial may have been Miss Frances Jennings, who according to The Gentleman's Magazine (1821), Volume 129, page 476, was the "dau. of the late Sir Philip Jennings Clerke", and who died in Berlin, 12 April 1821.
