St Peter's Churchyard, Petersham
St Peter's Churchyard, Petersham
The attractive little church of St Peter's lies down a lane, just off the very busy Petersham Road. In the pleasant churchyard alongside the wall seen here is the grave of Captain George Vancouver who was born in 1757 and died in 1798. He sailed with Captain Cook to Antarctica and was with him on his last voyage to the Pacific. Captain Vancouver discovered Vancouver Island in British Columbia, which was named after him.
