Search St Mary Magdalene Churchyard:

The church was built for the convenience of the Lord of the Manor residing in the large house nearby back in the 13th century or maybe earlier. Since then the church was restored on more than one occasion, first being in 1519, when the state of the churchyard was looked at, too.
The most famous tenant of Great Hampden, John Hampden, has no marked grave, causing occasional arguments around his burial place. In 1828 the attempt to exhume the body was made. It did not prove that the body belonged to John Hampden and the matter remains controversial.
