Hoopers Island is one of the oldest settled areas in America. The Graveyard was originally part of the 117 acre tract called "Shapleigh's Chance." The tract, surveyed in 1667, was sold in 1669 to William Travers of Hoopers Island. With the passage of generations, the lands were re-surveyed and subdivided. In 1821 John Parker, William Travers' great-grandson, sold the graveyard to Matthew Travers and the heirs of Travers Tolley. Matthew Travers' first wife, Mary, was buried here in 1805 (the oldest tombstone).
