Quoting Peter Likeman

"Giles Hatch was the Rector, it is recorded in the Register, that set aside an area in the churchyard for burial of himself and his family and marked it the corners with four white stones. Three of the stones are still there on the south side of the Gibson tomb, two without any inscription but the one nearest the tomb and the Rectory wall has on it the names: Mosden and (I think) Eleanor."
