Gibson Mausoleum in
St Nicholas' Churchyard
TQ 2564 16/167
Erected 1777 to contain the remains of James Gibson and his family. One storey,
painted stone. Moulded skirting to plinth, and moulded cornice rail above. Vermiculated
angle quoins, and round-arched entrance with "Gibbs" surround. Partly fluted
eaves cornice, pyramidal stone roof with "Adam" vase surmounting. Inscription
on east wall.
In the churchyard are several old gravestones of interest. These include 2 inscribed
C17 slab stones almost against the north aisle wall, and, parallel to chancel
window an early C19 monument to a blacksmith with an inscribed verse (for latter,
see Marshall, "History of Cheam and Sutton", p 88). There is also said to be
a gravestone with an inscription including a reference to Mrs Elizabeth Pistor,
died 1690, and 2 of her children "who dyed young in the Great Sickness AD 1665"
(see W G Bell "Great Plague in London" (1924), p 284, where author says he knows
of no other inscription of this kind); this gravestone formerly under a thorn
tree in line with west door of the church but not now visible.
