Tanya and Brett's ... Great-Great-Great-Grand-Parents (Sclanders)

Thomas Spence Sclanders and Mary Jones


Thomas and Mary married on 6th October 1851
at St Stephen Church in Willunga South Australia

The cemetery was the site of the earliest St Stephen's Church which was constructed in 1848
as the Anglican Church for the Parish of Myponga, Yankalilla, Meadows and Port Elliott as well as the Willunga District

The Church and cemetery were located on two acres of land donated by Mr Richard Hill

The St Stephen's Church and the cemetery functioned until a new St Stephen's Church was opened in Willunga township
in July of 1884 ... the old church then fell into disuse, used occasionally possibly for funeral services

The building itself was demolished in about 1930 and very little evidence of its location within the cemetery remains

This photo of St Stephen Church was taken in 1850, the year before Thomas and Mary married
