In the churchyard, exact location unknown, are buried the victims of the 'Popish Plot' conspiracy devised by the informer Titus Oates. He falsely claimed there was a Jesuit-led conspiracy to support the invasion of England by France. After grossly unfair trials including extensive use of perjured witnesses, 15 innocent people were hanged, drawn and quartered at Tyburn and buried at St. Giles (d. 1678-1681). Many were later beatified or canonised, including St. Oliver Plunkett.
