  1. Good stuff as always, Rob. You even got out to Brentford! (Coming back from Heathrow?)
    One of my friends lives in Gravesend, just up the road from that church, and they always celebrate Pocahontas in the town.
    Glad to see you correct the inaccurate ‘Disney history’ too.
    Cheers, Pete.

  2. As a direct relative of the Powhatan princess, this is great info for my upcoming trip to London. I’ll have to make some time to go visit the church she was buried at.
