Hancock Cemetery
Quincy, Norfolk County, Massachusetts

1307 Hancock St., Quincy, MA 02169

Lat: 42° 15' 01"N, Lon: 71° 00' 15"W

This was the Burial Ground for the Town of Braintree, incorporated in 1640, and was the only burial place until 1716. Thereafter, it was the burial ground for the North Precinct and then the Town of Quincy until the 1840s. It is located across the street from First Parish Church where John Hancock's father was minister. It was later known as Christ Episcopal Church.

On Apr 20, 1844 additional land was purchased from Daniel and Hannah French, which added to both town and cemetery, and it remained the main burial ground in Quincy until the opening of Mount Wollaston cemetery in 1854.

The Hancock Cemetery is named for the Rev. John Hancock, fifth minister of the church now know as United First Parish Church (Church of the Presidents) and father of John Hancock, the Patriot.
