March 2017 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Pocahontas who succumbed to illness on the outskirts of London.
To mark this remarkable Native American woman’s short, but fascinating life, my latest Time Out article looks at six locations in and around the capital which share a connection with her.
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.
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.
