Le Breton slab

In a curious bit of irony, a few paces towards the rear of the church from the statue of St Thomas a Beckett in the aisle floor is a slab dedicated to Francis le Breton, Lieutenant RN, who died in 1796 aged 28. The irony lies in the fact that an ancestor of his was one of the four knights who murdered St Thomas in Canterbury Cathedral.
