Cemetery History

Trinity Churchyard Cemetery grew around the tiny Trinity Church. Trinity Church was erected in 1797 by Samuel Livermore (1732-1803) on a parcel of his own land. Livermore was a prominent citizen of Holderness, and eventually became the State's Attorney General in 1776, and later served in the Continental Congress, and as Chief Justice of NH.

Livermore, an Episcopalian, had been hosting church services in his house prior to erecting the church in 1797.

Trinity Churchyard Cemetery Association provided control and management oversight of the Cemetery through its Board of Trustees continuously from June, 1854 when Arthur Livermore, Jr. deeded the Church and burying ground to the Association for one dollar.

Holderness School acquired the Livermore homestead for its use in 1879. Holderness School owns all the land surrounding the Cemetery (not the cemetery itself), with the exception of the south boundary owned by the State of New Hampshire- Route 175 and the right-of-way (ROW)

An inventory of graves and inscriptions conducted by Norton R. Bagley and Michael C. Vacca in 1985 documented 1,639 individuals buried at Trinity Cemetery as of that time.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
