Richard Everard

I was in the church yard on Monday 22nd September 2014 and saw more Everard gravestones than are listed here. One was half buried and it looks as though several others are buried along the West wall. One I found in a pile of gravestones near the East entrance gate. Certainly when I last visited about ten years ago I was shown the grave of George Everard by a lady in the Church who appeared to know quite a lot about the Everard family. I would be interested to know why some of the gravestones are covered up.

The list of monumental inscriptions is a complete list of those recorded by the WI in the churchyard survey that they did many years ago. It’s not a list of burials, just the inscriptions that they noted.

You’ll find a list of burials prior between 1813 and 1891 on this site. There are more than 20 of your family listed there. For burials after 1891 you’d have to contact the church as I believe that the records are still held by them.

I’m guessing that any gravestones that are in a pile are damaged, awaiting repair or have been moved to save further damage, but that’s just a guess. You’d need to ask the vicar or church authorities for a definite answer. Contact details are on their website:

I hope that this helps.

Can you help me please, my earliest known RAYNOR ancestor Thomas Raynor was apparently born in Thurlaston Leicestershire around 1776. Please could you check the parish registers for maybe births, baptisms, marriages, deaths, burials, and before 1776 to enable me to trace Thomas’s ancestors.

Many thanks for any help you can give me.

Hi Chris,

You would need to contact the church direct for this information. He is Jerry Taylor on 01455 888679 or on email

I hope this helps.

Many thanks Phil. Visiting Thurlaston soon and discovered some of the detail is online, and really appreciated your help.
