News - Churchyard Tales - a Duel

In 2012 we were invited by the Friends of St. Mary's Church in Cowes to write a Churchyard Tale
about the gravestone of John Sutton, age 22, who was killed in a duel in December 1817.





We performed our poems at St. Mary's in October, along with other writers and musicians with their own churchyard tales to tell. We have now printed the poems and some of our research evidence in a booklet called Poems on the Duel Between John Sutton and Major Orlando Lockyer. The booklet is available at St. Mary's Church, or from Shore Women. It's a story you won't forget!
