is a name for a child who dies within a month of his baptism, and is buried in his chris-om-cloth in lieu of a shroud. The engraving here given is that of a memorial brass of the 16th century, at Chesham Church in Buckinghamshire. It represents Benedict Lee, chrisom child, in his burial cloth. This was ordered to be used in the Church of England up to the veer 1552. The custom was that, if a child died within a month of his baptism, this baptismal cloth, or "white vesture," served for a shroud. There is an inscription underneath the figure which reads thus:
Of Rog Lee gentilma, here lyeth the Son Benedict Lee crysom who soule iha pdo.
