He survived to a ripe old age, and dying 18th August, 1696, aged 79, was buried in St Margaret’s church, Lynn. The monument to his memory bears the following inscription:-
“MS
RICHARDI CLAMP, generosi,
viri tam pietate quam animi candore satis noti omnibus:
qui variis prælibatis linguis
et ipsius naturæ acrcanis non inscrutandis
(proprio stimulante genio)
in totam mathematicam et rem medicam penetravit,
quarum praxi feliciter operam dedit.
Anno jam tandem LXXIX peracto,
altiora petens, in cælos migravit Aug. xviii. MDCXCVI.”
