Hainford – All Saints Church (the old one) – William Garrod + Amy Garrod

This is the tomb of William Garrod and his wife Amy Garrod, once located under the nave of All Saints Church in Hainford. The church was partly demolished during the period around 1840, meaning that this tomb suddenly found itself out in the graveyard.

I don’t much about this husband and wife, other than William died on 24 April 1681 and Amy died on 20 February 1681. Slightly amazingly, the burial records from this period have survived and are in the care of Norfolk Record Office, although there’s no information I can see on them which adds to the story. So, although I can find out nothing exciting about the Garrod family from the seventeenth century, it’s an interesting reminder of the church that was once here.
