Holy Trinity Church, Maidstone M.I.s etc. Index of names at end

Back to Churchyards listed

Monumental Inscriptions, including wills (pre 1858) and other notes of Holy Trinity Church, Maidstone
 recorded by D. E. Williams 2016


Holy Trinity from the west, the burial ground is left of church.
Foreground: the monument to Captain Nolan, who conveyed the wrong order to the light brigade
 during the Crimean War and was killed in the famous charge. he was stationed in Maidstone
 but has no familial connection with the town or parish, as far as I know.

Introduction
Holy Trinity was designed by Maidstone architect, John Whichcord and built 1826-28. the west front, with the tower and spire creates a rather powerful image as seen from the west. the other elevations are rather duller. the registers commenced in 1842.
   The burial ground is the tree lined area, north of the church, with another very small area east of the church.
   The last service at the church took place in July 1966. later a serious fire gutted the interior. three monuments survive at the west end in perfect condition but it seems likely that there were other monuments which did not survive the fire.
   In 1999, the burial ground was cleared of monuments, except for the southern side, where monuments, (except the Clifford headstone), are in situ. the other monuments were placed around the north, west and east sides.
   It should be noted that the monuments neatly fit the spaces available, suggesting that there may have been more monuments which are now lost? the burial ground is now a pleasant public space named Trinity Park.
   In recent years, the de-consecrated building was repaired and converted into supported accommodation for young homeless people aged 16 25 years.
   My thanks to Mr. Barry Rayment for kindly informing me of the existence of the Holy Trinity burial ground. I would also like to thank the member of staff who showed me the monuments to Major General Middleton's wife and Henry Pybus in a stairwell at the west end of the church.

MAIDSTONE JOURNAL 3rd AUGUST 1844
"CORNER'S INQUEST
ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON, LAST AN INQUEST WAS HELD AT THE GIBRALTER INN, BEFORE J.M. CLABON, ESQ., DEPUTY CORONER, ON THE BODY OF GEORGE PARKER, AGED 22 (sic) WHO CAME TO HIS DEATH UNDER THE FOLLOWING MELANCHOLY CIRCUMSTANCES:-
   JOSHUA STANSBY STATED THAT HE WAS A BOOTMAKER, IN THE EMPLOY OF MR RANDALL, AT MAIDSTONE. THE DECEASED WAS OF THE SAME TRADE IN THE EMPLOY OF MESSRS BENTLIFF.
   ON MONDAY AFTERNOON, LAST ABOUT HALF PAST 3 O'CLOCK, HE LEFT MAIDSTONE IN COMPANY WITH THE DECEASED IN A BOAT BELONGING TO SMITH AT THE BRIDGE. IT WAS A SMALL STOUT-BUILT SKIFF AND DECEASED ROWED DOWN TO GIBRALTER, AT WHICH PLACE THEY ARRIVED ABOUT 4 O'CLOCK, AND STAID THERE TILL TEN MINUTES TO 5, WHEN THEY LEFT TO RETURN TO MAIDSTONE. WITNESS TOOK THE OARS ON LEAVING GIBRALTER AND ROWED A LITTLE WAY DOWN THE RIVER, WHEN HE HAD ASKED DECEASED TO TAKE HIS PLACE. THE HEAD OF THE BOAT WAS AT THIS TIME GOING TOWARDS THE BANK AND WITNESS TOLD DECEASED TO STOP A MINUTE BEFORE HE MOVED, AND TURNED HIS HEAD LOOKING AT THE BOW OF THE BOAT AND PULLING IT OUT FROM THE BANK, WHEN HE FELT A SUDDEN SWAY AND CRIED OUT "HALLOA, WHAT ARE YOU UP TO NOW", AND ON LOOKING ROUND MISSED DECEASED FROM THE BOAT AND SAW HIS HAT FLOATING ON THE WATER.
   HE IMMEDIATELY GOT UP AND PUT THE BOAT HOOK OUT BUT HE DID NOT RISE AGAIN. THE BOAT HOOK WOULD NOT TOUCH THE BOTTOM OF THE RIVER AND HE IMMEDIATELY WENT TO MR PEARCE FOR THE DRAGS.
   DURING THE TIME THEY WERE AT THE GIBRALTER THEY ONLY HAD TWO QUARTS OF ALE BETWEEN SIX OF THEM AND WERE NOT THE LEAST INTOXICATED. THEY HAD NO QUARREL WHATEVER.
   THOMAS SMITH, BOATMAN, DEPOSED THAT ON MONDAY NIGHT LAST, ABOUT 8 O'CLOCK, ON LEARNING THAT A MAN WAS DROWNED AT GIBRALTER WHO HAD ONE OF HIS BOATS, HE IMMEDIATELY WENT DOWN AND FOUND THREE BOATS DRAGGING FOR HIM. HE GOT INTO A BOAT AND AFTER ABOUT A QUARTER OF ONE HOUR'S SEARCH SUCCEEDED IN FINDING THE BODY, WHICH WAS CLOSE TO THE SHORE IN ABOUT 2 FEET OF WATER. WITNESS THOUGHT THAT FROM THE POSITION IN WHICH HE FOUND THE BODY, HE HAD NOT MOVED SINCE HE FELL IN.
   THE WATER AT THIS TIME WAS GOING DOWN VERY FAST, AND HE THOUGHT AT THE TIME THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN ABOUT 5 FEET OF WATER WHERE THE BODY WAS FOUND. THERE WAS NOTHING PARTICULAR IN THE APPEARANCE OF THE BODY.
   (QUESTION) BY A JUROR: IT WAS A VERY STIFF-BUILT BOAT AND PERFECTLY SAFE--- IT WAS THE SAME PARTY HAD HAD IT BEFORE SEVERAL TIMES. IT WAS GOING WITH A GENTLEMAN THAT AFTERNOON TO SHEERNESS. STANSBY WAS PERFECTLY SOBER WHEN I SAW HIM THAT EVENING.
   STANSBY RE-EXAMINED THE LAST TIME I SAW DECEASED ALIVE HE WAS STANDING UP IN THE BOAT WAITING TO TAKE MY SEAT.
    JAMES SPAIN, WATERMAN, ASSISTED IN SEARCHING FOR THE DECEASED AND HAD DONE SO FOR AN HOUR AND HALF PREVIOUS TO SMITH'S ARRIVAL.
   MR PETER MONTAGUE POPE, SURGEON, RESIDING AT MALLING, EXAMINED THE BODY THAT DAY; HE FOUND NO MARKS OF VIOLENCE WHATEVER.
   THE CORONER IN ADDRESSING THE JURY SAID THAT IT WAS NECESSARY FOR HIM TO STATE TO THEM BEFORE THEY RETURNED THEIR VERDICT, TO FIND THE VALUE OF THE BOAT, OR TO FIX A SUM SOMETHING NEAR THE VALUE AS A DEODAND, AND IT WOULD BE FORFEITED TO THE CROWN. HE WAS SORRY IT WAS SO FOR SMITH, AS HE COULD NOT SEE FROM THE EVIDENCE THAT THE BOAT WAS FAULTY IN ANY DEGREE,, BUT STILL IT WAS A POINT OF LAW AND IT WAS HIS DUTY TO SUGGEST THAT TO THEM. THE DEODAND, HOWEVER, UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES MIGHT PROBABLY BE REMITTED IF APPLIED FOR IN A PROPER QUARTER.
   THE JURY RETIRED AND AFTER SOME CONSULTATION, RETURNED A VERDICT OF "ACCIDENTALLY DROWNED, WITH A DEODAND OF 3 ON THE BOAT".
   THE DECEASED, WHO WAS A HIGHLY RESPECTABLE YOUNG MAN, WAS A NATIVE OF ESSEX AND HIS LOSS WE HAVE NO DOUBT WILL BE DEEPLY LAMENTED BY THE NUMEROUS CIRCLE OF FRIENDS IN THIS TOWN WHO HAD THE PLEASURE OF HIS ACQUAINTANCE. THE FATHER AND TWO BROTHERS OF THE UNFORTUNATE YOUNG MAN WERE PRESENT DURING THE INVESTIGATION AND SEEMED GREATLY AFFECTED".
