2/165 Headstone to Thomas Martin at
approx 25m south of east end of
All Hallows Church of Saint Kea
Headstone. 1805. To Thomas Martin by Isbell of Truro. Dressed shaped granite slab
with inscribed slate insert. West face of slab with shaped head has incised
inscription in fat face lettering which states: This stone records the first Burial
in this Churchyard on Sunday Aug XI MD CC V.
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.
