TQ 86/8790
14/208 Headstone and surrounds
approx. 16 metres south
of south west angle of
south porch of Church
of St. Andrew
Headstone and surround of grave of James Banyard, born 31 January 1800, died 31
October 1897. Simple with rounded angles to headstone, pyramidal heads to
corner stones and chamfered side and end stones. The inscription relates that
James Banyard was the founder of The Peculiar People in the County of Essex.
The sect was founded as a grass roots revivalist movement during the 1850's,
they were respected for agricultural and social reforms, but belief only in
natural healing was a cause of friction with the general public, especially when
Smallpox vaccination etc., became popular. The two earliest surviving intact
Peculiar Peoples Chapels at Tillingham (11.218) and Steeple (4/167) Essex, are
listed buildings. Mark Sorrell, The Peculiar People.
