Search All Saints Churchyard:

All Saints Parish Church in Kingston-Upon-Thames is a huge building, in fitting with the earlier status of the town. It replaced an ancient Saxon church, which collapsed around 1730. Probably the most important preacher was Edmund Staunton, 1600 -1671, vicar at Kingston 1633 - 1658, though with periods of suspension. He was succeeded by Richard Mayo, whose monument appears in the church. Richard Mayo died on 8 September 1695 and was buried at All Saints church. During the civil wars of the 17th Century, Kingston-Upon-Thames was a Royalist area, yet the contemporary preachers appeared to be parliamentarians and presbyterians. Historians have noted seeing parts of the church which they believed dated as far back as the 13th Century. Edmund Staunton was buried in Bovingdon, Hertfordshire, but ten of his eleven children died young and are buried in All Saints' churchyard.
