St Andrew’s Church at Cleeve Priory dates back to at least the 9th century and the village was mentioned in the Doomsday Book in 1086. The burial ground was consecrated on 18th October 1315 – just before Sara Charlett was born, if details on her gravestone are to be believed. It states that she died in 1693 at the age of 309 years! Almost certainly a mistake but nevertheless a curiosity.
