St Mewan - Loveday Hambly Buried (1682)

This tablet marks the giving of the land as a Burial Ground. Loveday Hambly is buried here with many of the early Quakers.

Additional Information

This is all that is left of the Quaker Burial Ground. It was part of the Tregangeeves estate and it used to have a high wall around it, but the building of successive roads has eaten into it. The A390 Truro road is next to it. The bodies of the early Quakers lie 20 ft or more below the surface.
