Dan Boswell's grave, Selston churchyard

In the churchyard near the north side of the tower is the gravestone to Dan Boswell, the “king of the gipsies”, who died in 1827. The inscription reads:

“I’ve lodged in many a town,
I’ve travelled many a year,
But death at length has brought me down,
To my last lodging here.”
