2/162 Chest tomb and headstone at approx 8m east of All Hallows Church of Saint Kea

GV II

Chest tomb and headstone. Chest tomb, 1809, to James Brown of Goodern, and headstone, 1830, to Michael Dunstan by Pierce. White limestone chest and slate headstone. Chest tomb is rectangular-on-plan with moulded plinth, scalloped cornered fielded panels to sides and bullnose moulded lid. West side panel and lid have incised inscriptions which are difficult to decipher. Headstone has steeped and segmental arched head and has inscised inscription to Michael Dunstan of Penwethers, d. 1830 aged 97 years. The present church, of 1896, replaces a church of 1802 designed by James Wyatt, and the churchyard dates from then. Very few tomb monuments survive at the earlier church at Old Kea; so the earlier C19 churchyard monuments in this churchyard, though modest architecturally, are historically important for this parish.
