Saffron Walden, Temeraire

The Harveys were a distinguished local family, many of whom are buried at nearby Hempstead. Among them is Sir Eliab Harvey, who commanded the Temeraire at Trafalgar, in 1805.

 

Sir Eliab Harvey had a distinguished naval career. During the famous naval encounter, the ship was second in line to Nelson's flagship, the Victory. The Temeraire was later immortalised in a painting by the celebrated artist J M W Turner, and is also recalled in the name of this Wetherspoon pub.
