Aylesbury Vale District
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This ancient church site was mentioned in the Domesday Book, and had a history of several tower and spire collapses through the centuries. Repairs were made after such a collapse in 1698, but after another in 1776 a new location was sought and this old location was left to fall into great disrepair and abandonment. The new church was built on Castle Hill and dedicated on Dec. 6, 1780. For some years afterward parishioners paid an additional sexton's fee for burials in the old churchyard.
The Ingoldsby family buried their dead in a large vault in the great cross aisle, called Poulton's Aisle, but there was no memorial to any of them in this defunct church.
