The Grave of Champernowne
Francis Champernowne lies buried on the sea-side of Gerrish Island, his only monument a little pile of small stones. Thomas de Cambernon was the ancestor to whom the Champernownes traced back their descent. Modburys blazoned door alludes to one of his descendants, the mother of Sir Walter Raleigh, who was a Champernowne of Mudbury.
