Graham contacted us with the following comment.
“My 16 x great grandmother is buried in St Mary’s Churchyard, so I am
led to believe.
“She was born in 1410 . I believe that her son Nicholas ( 15 gt
grandfather) is also buried in the churchyard .
“We might have been in the village for generations before !
“This is the farthest back in time I have traced an ancestor
“Best wishes to Gislingham!!”
Sadly, the oldest headstones in the churchyard are so weathered that there is no detectable trace of the names that were once upon them!
