The Parish seems to have acquired the first part of the burial ground ca. 1680 when it appears in the Churchwardens accounts. The first burial was 4year old William Pearce. The newer part of the graveyard was acquired ca. 1774. The cemetery was variously known as "The French Churchyard", "The Huguenot Cemetery", and "Mount Nod".
