Bournemouth: Lewis Tregonwell memorial
This monument in SZ0891 : Bournemouth: St. Peter’s churchyard is in memory of Lewis Tregonwell, essentially the founder of what was to become Bournemouth – he built the first house on the site of what is now the Royal Exeter Hotel close to the Pier Approach.

The central panel reads:

Sacred to the memory of
LEWIS DYMOKE GROSVENOR TREGONWELL ESQUIRE
of Anderson and Cranborne Lodge, in the County of Dorset
who departed this life at the latter of these residences
on the 18th of January MDCCCXXXII [1832], Aged 73 Years
Also of
Grosvenor Portman Tregonwell his Son
who died an infant, on the 29th May MDCCCVI [1807]

Their remains were removed from Anderson to this spot on the 26th of February MDCCCXLVI [1846]

BOURNEMOUTH, which Mr TREGONWELL was the first to bring into notice as a Watering-place, by erecting
a Mansion for his own occupation, having been his favourite retreat for many years before his death.
