History

Enclosing walls of Quaker Burial Ground said to have been established in 1661. The ground approached by a path along a beech avenue with earth embankments each side, and the walls surrounded by similar embankments. Within are 2 later C19 headstones, to G Phillips of Dew St (d 1869) and Sarah S Matthias (d 1861). The Quakers were established in Haverfordwest in the C17, George Fox visited in 1657 and the first Yearly Meeting for Wales was held at Redstone in 1682, but persecution led to many emigrating in the 1680s. The Quaker Meeting declined by the early C19 and the meeting house was demolished for the Shire Hall in 1835.
