Exact wording of epitaph: 

From Blacker 1874

 The body of Sir James Stratford TYNTE, General of the Army of

Volunteers of Ireland, who died the 10th November, 1785, was here

interred with military honors. Near this place are deposited the

remains of the Right Hon. James TYNTE of Dunlavin, Co, Wicklow,

buried 12th April, 1758, and Robert TYNTE 25th June, 1760,Esquires,

grandfather and father of Sir James Stratford TYNTE. Also the remains

of James TYNTE, his son, and Martha, his daughter. Whist the

patriotism of a Volunteer, and the social virtue of a tender husband,

dutiful child, fond parent, honest man, and loyal subject are thought

estimable, the memory of Sir James TYNTE will be revered.

 

This last sad token, O my love, receive,

Alas!'tis all your Hannah now can give.

 

The parish-register of the time, as already mentioned, is not

forthcoming ; but in one of the visitation-returns from Donnybrook,

Sir James TYNTE's burial is recorded : - " Buried at Donnybrook, Sir

Jas. Tente, 13th Nov, 1785.

Notes: 

This could be Tynte's monument. Listed in Blacker's history as 

[Over the grave of Sir James Stratford Tynte, Bart., there is a monumental stone, in the shape of an obelisk. There was an inscription of considerable length, as mentioned in p. 127 : but from the effects of the weather little of it is now legible. Thanks, however, to the foresight of the late Sir William Betham, Ulster King-of-Arms, we are not left without a record of the inscription. In his MSS. in the British Museum (Add. MSS. 23,684-7), with tran- scripts of other inscriptions at Donnybrook, it has been preserved ; and the particulars are as follows :

of Sir James Stratford Tynte, General of the Army of Volunteers of Ireland, who died the 10th November, 1785, was here interred with military honors. Near this place are deposited the remains of the Right Hon. James Tynte [of Dunlavin, Co, Wicklow, buried 12th April, 1758], and Robert Tynte [25th June, 1760], Esquires, grandfather and father of Sir James Stratford Tynte. Also the remains of 

James Tynte, his son, and Martha, his daughter. Whilst the patriotism of a Volunteer, and the social virtue of a tender husband, dutiful child, fond parent, honest man, and loyal subject are thought estimable, the memory of Sir James Tynte will be revered. 

4 This last sad token, my love, receive Alas ! 'tis all your Hannah now can give !' 

The parish-register of the time, as already mentioned, is not 

forthcoming ; but in one of the visitation-returns from Donnybrook, Sir James Tynte's burial is recorded : " Buried  at Donnybrook, Sir Jas. Tent, 13th Novr, 1785."
