2/159 2 chest tombs and headstone at
approx 5m east of All Hallows
Church of Saint Kea


2 chest tombs and headstone. West chest tomb. 1836, to Mary Giddy and John her
brother, by Edgcombe; east chest tomb, 1849 to Mary Jenkins and headstone, 1813 to
James Treloar and Alice his wife.
Chest tombs are rectangular-on-plan with outer plinths for railings(removed). Outer
plinths are granite, originally surmounted by iron railings and chests are of brick
stretchers with slate lids.
West chest has incised lid inscription to Mary Giddy, 1858-1822 also John her
brother, 1760-1835.
East chest has incised lid inscription to Mary Jenkins, d, 1849 aged 61.
Headstone, of slate with concave corners is nowy-headed with incised inscription to
James Treloar d. 1813 aged 63 and Alice his wife d, 1813 aged 62.
The present church, of 1896, replaces a church of 1802 designed by James Wyatt, and
the churchyard dates from then. Very few tomb monuments survive at the earlier
church at Old Kea; so the earlier C19 churchyard monuments in this churchyard, though
modest architecturally, are historically important for this parish.
