    Sir John and Sir Thomas are both buried IN Old Chelsea Church in Chelsea ( formerly a suburb of London but now in the London metropolitan area. In Fe bruary of this year, my wife had the good fortune to visit London and I
    spent a great deal of time at this church. There are wonderful old
    monuments in honor of Sir John and Sir Thomas (their original burial monum ents). I will send you pictures. This church was the parish church of S ir Thomas More. On one side of the Nave there is the More Chapel and on t he other side the Lawrence Chapel. It was quite amazing to see. Info from
    Thomas Humphrey Lawrence

    "Sir John Lawrence, Knight and Baronet, was a wealthy merchant of
    London. He purchased on share of stock in the Virginia Company in
    Virginia on June 23, 1620, a fact that may entitle his descendants to
