Cemetery notes and/or description:
The earliest parts of the Church of England parish church of All Saints are Norman, dating from the middle of the 12th century. The bell tower has a ring of five bells, all cast in 1717 by Henry Bagley of Chacombe. The tenor bell was recast in 1883.
Middleton Stoney had a motte-and-bailey castle, which was first recorded in 1215. Its remains are east of All Saints Church.
The parish's common lands were enclosed at the end of the 17th century. In 1824-25 George Child Villiers, 5th Earl of Jersey demolished the original village and manor house to make way for him to expand Middleton Park eastwards. The castle mound and All Saints' church remain isolated within the extended park.His wife Sarah Villiers, Countess of Jersey directed the building of new cottages on the edge of the park, each with a rustic porch and a flower garden. These form the nucleus of the current village
