Langton Matravers – St. George’s Church

Langton Matravers - St. George's Church

Our thanks to Colin Hague for sharing this photo with us Colin says “One of my family history names is HAVILAND (aka HAVILLAND, DE HAVILLAND etc)About two years ago we were wandering round the county and for no very good reason popped into St George’s Church in Langton Matravers. Imagine my surprise and delight to find a 17c wall plaque commemorating John and Mary HAVELLAND. Mr R Saville of the village Local History Society very kindly sent me quite a lot of information about the Church and the plaque. Intriguingly, the plaque had been lost for perhaps a century, and then turned up in Tollesbury Vicarage, Essex, after which it was restored to the Church in 1927.”
