St John’s Figtree Anglican Church Tours

One of the oldest churches in the Caribbean, the small stone St John’s Figtree Anglican Church was built in 1680. Surrounding the building are the church grounds, which have long doubled as a cemetery. You can explore the property and examine the gravestones, some of which date back more than 300 years.

Certainly the most notable feature is the prominently displayed marriage certificate declaring the nuptials of legendary British naval captain Horatio Nelson and local widow Frances Nisbet, dated March 11, 1787. The church was the source of the marriage certificate, as the original and historic document was found among the church’s records, but the wedding itself took place at Nisbet’s property, Montpelier Estate. The church also contains a memorial from the now Lady Nelson to her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Wollward.
