Cemetery notes and/or description:
Minster, Isle of Sheppey is a village and a parish on the north coast of the Isle of Sheppey, opposite the Nore, 3 miles east-by-north of Queenborough. A nunnery was founded at Minster about 675 by Sexburga,(or Seaxburh, Sexburgha), the son of Ercombert, King of Kent, and a saint of the Christian Church.Some sources say she was the widow of Ercombert.It was sacked by the Danes in AD 835 but restored in 1130, by Archbishop Corboil (or Corbeuil) as a colony for Benedictine nuns.The new churchyard stands some distance away from the Abbey Church itself.
