Jews’ Cemetary

Prior to being renamed Jews’ Garden around the time of the thirteenth-century expulsion of the Jews, the location was known as the Jews’ Cemetery. Victor Belcher and Martha Carlin note that the cemetery was until 1177 the only Jewish cemetery in England (Carlin and Belcher 78). The cemetary was variously known as le Juesgardyn Jewesgardin, Le Jewengardyn, and Jewengardyn (Harben 322). Stow discusses the cemetery in his survey of Cripplegate Ward, nothing that the Iewes Garden is now turned into faire garden plots and sommer houses for pleasure (Stow 1:241). The location was just outside of the City Wall, near the church of St. Giles without Cripplegate.
