Maidstone Borough

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Hollingbourne is a village and civil parish in the Maidstone District of Kent, England. The parish is located near a permanent spring at the foot of the southward slope of the North Downs four miles to the east of the county town, Maidstone. It suffered from the construction of the M20 motorway and the High Speed rail link in recent years both of which run immediately adjacent to the village, the history of which stretches back to the Stone Age. The first recorded mention of the community is in the Domesday Book of 1086 but a church would have stood on the site before the Norman Conquest. All Saints dates mainly from the 14th Century after an earthquake demolished much of the earlier structure.Within the church are many monuments to the Culpeper family, who have lived in the village for many generations. All Saints is best-known for the centuries-old 'Culpeper cloth,' sometimes described as an altar cloth (although it is probably too large to have served that function), said to have been embroidered by the four daughters of Sir John Culpeper, Lord of Greenway Court.
