Google Translation (tweaked to the best of my abilities, which means one or two word changes & a deleted/added comma here or there, but I'm bewildered by most of the translation):

Of Singular Prudence, and of a most sweet, and winning disposition Who Having by his Wife Wilgiford 3 Sons, and 6 Daughters On the 23rd of July 1595 in the 66th year of his age Resigned his Soul to his Redeemer And here awaiteth for his second coming.

A translation from 1885, pretty much in accord with the meaning.
