      The C18th antiquarian the Rev. Bryan Faussett noted in 1756 some MIs from Petham Church, including the following:

      "Another. [flat stone in the body of the Church.] In Memory of Mary, Wife of Thomas HALKE Gent. late of this Parish. She died 16 Octob. 1739. Aged 53 Years. Also Hester, Wife of Thomas Halke, Son of ye Above. She died 2d. Jany., 1755. Aged 25 Years. Also Hester Halke died ye 26th of Jany. 1755. Aged 2 Years. Also Mary Halke died ye 9th of March 1756. Aged 3 Years. Daughters of Thomas and Hester Halke. (This Thomas Halke died 28 March 1747. Ag. 65 and is buried under an Alter Tomb in ye Ch. Yard)."
      (source: the Kent Archaeological Society website, no. 14 on the page)

      Hasted records this tomb as having 'arms, A fess, between three hawks.' ('Parishes: Petham', The History and Topographical Survey of the County of Kent: Volume 9 (1800), pp. 310-319. On the British History Online website. Date accessed: 16 October 2014.)

      From seeing the tomb it is a flat stone but now level with the ground, not raised as one would expect with an altar or table tomb, but perhaps the sides disintegrated the stone was re-positioned at ground level.
      It is adjacent to other Halke gravestones.
      The inscription reads:

      Here lieth the Body of
      THOMAS HALKE Gent of this
      Parish who left ?? one Son [and]
      one Daughr Viz Tho of [? this Parish]
      and Mary Wife of Hopkins Fox of
      Nackington. He departed this life
      28: Day of March in the Year of
      our Lord 1747 in the
      6? Year of His Age.
