Here is a very nice memorial to this man in Garboldisham (Norfolk) church.

The quotation is unusual. I wonder what are its origins?

"Bee up and doyinge"

Probably no connection at all given the dialect style wording but it does remind me of the the last verse of Longfellow's poem 'A Psalm of Life'.

Let us, then, be up and doing,

With a heart for any fate;

Still achieving, still pursuing,

Learn to labour and to wait.
