The site of a medieval monastery, Old Leckpatrick Burying Ground is located in Leckpatrick townland, approx. five kilometres north of Strabane and twelve kilometres south of Londonderry at the junction of Victoria Road and Ballyheather Road near Ballymagorry in the parish of Leckpatrick.

St. Patrick is believed to have founded a church here sometime after 450 A.D., Leckpatrick translating as the flat stone of Patrick.

The picturesque graveyard is surrounded by a fieldstone wall, and in one corner are the remains of an old schoolhouse and sexton’s shed.

Entry is via a single gate and one is immediately confronted by a steep incline which is actually a large mound in the centre of the graveyard indicating that graves have been “topped up” by sextons over the centuries. Leckpatrick, like others within the former Strabane District Council jurisdiction, was closed in the 1920s as hazardous to public health.

Within the graveyard is a small disused chapel known as the “Abercorn Vault” which was used by the Hamiltons of Mountcastle and Castle Street, Strabane, prior to the construction of the mansion Baronscourt in Ardstraw parish.

Another notable family of the parish were the Sinclair family of Holly Hill [Holyhill, Holy Hill, etc.] and Bonnyglen, Co. Donegal, who maintained a separate graveyard with access from Victoria Road, known as the “Sinclair Corner”.

The first recorded burial is that of John Mag(h)ee in 1617 and the last family to retain burial rights was the Arbuckle family of Woodend and Strabane, the final interment taking place in 2005.

The graveyard was surveyed in Griffiths Valuation (1858) as measuring 0a.3r.20p in area, with an annual valuation of fifteen shillings.

Unfortunately, the early registers of baptisms, marriages and burials of Leckpatrick Parish Church (St. Patrick’s Church of Ireland) had been deposited in the old Public Record Office, Dublin, where they were destroyed in 1922.

Leckpatrick parish enters the town of Strabane from the north and many old Strabane families lie at rest here; Arbuckle, Bonner, Campbell, Donnell, Gordon, Hannah and Ross.

The following families found in the graveyard are recorded in the 1631 Abercorn Muster Rolls for the Manor of Cloghogal (Leckpatrick Parish) and the Men and Armes of the Town of Strabane: Arbuckle, Barr, Boyd, Brown, Forbes, Gordon, Gourley, Hamilton, Hannah, Knox, Patterson, Pollock and Purdon.

A survey of the graveyard was undertaken by Sheelagh & David Todd in 1991; they recorded all legible headstone inscriptions and published same in the long out of print “Register of Gravestone Inscriptions in Leckpatrick Old Burial Ground, Artigarvan, Strabane
