The early history of this cemetery, which is situated between Hanover & Amherst streets, is involved in obscurity. It originally formed part of Lot 48 of Hampstead Cemetery.In a codicil to the will of Sarah Da Costa, the widow of Isaac Da Costa, made on October 7, 1793, she directs that her executors "do purchase out of my estate, eighty feet square of a lot of land, situated in Hampstead, which I give and devise to my executors to be held by them and their heirs, or by such persons as they may appoint, for the sole purpose of being a burial ground for my family and the Portuguese Jews." (Wills, Book C, 1793-1800, pag 63)
