Just west of the tower of St. Giles Church is the grave of Elihu Yale, after whom Yale University in the USA is named, with its long, fanciful epitaph containing the following lines:

Born in America, in Europe bred,
In Africa travell’d, and in Asia wed,
Where long he lov’d and thriv’d
At London dead.
