2/162 Chest tomb and headstone at approx
8m east of All Hallows Church of
Saint Kea


Chest tomb and headstone. Chest tomb, 1809, to James Brown of Goodern, and
headstone, 1830, to Michael Dunstan by Pierce. White limestone chest and slate
Chest tomb is rectangular-on-plan with moulded plinth, scalloped cornered fielded
panels to sides and bullnose moulded lid. West side panel and lid have incised
inscriptions which are difficult to decipher.
Headstone has steeped and segmental arched head and has inscised inscription to
Michael Dunstan of Penwethers, d. 1830 aged 97 years.
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.
