The grave of the comedian and writer, Spike Milligan, lies within the churchyard. On his gravestone there is an inscription in Irish. It says, simply, "I told you I was ill".
The present town of Winchelsea was founded by Edward I to take the place of an older town of the same name which had been lost to the sea in a series of great storms (1287). The new planned town of Winchelsea assumed the status of Ancient Town and Head Port of the Cinque Port Confederation, the alliance of Kent and Sussex ports which was England's main defence against invasion.
