Shoreham plaque to Henry Roberts

 

West Sussex County Council, on Thursday, 13th July, 2000 erected a commemorative plaque at 18 Church Street, Shoreham-by-Sea, on the south coast of England, to Henry Roberts, who lived there.
Henry Roberts (1756 - 1796) sailed as able seaman on Cook's Second Voyage and master's mate on the Third. He is best known for his painting of the Resolution and his charts reproduced in the official account of the Third Voyage.
Several members of the CCS attended. A report appeared in the October 2000 issue of Cook's Log
CCS member, Neil Luck, and Stanley Hobson (both descendants of Roberts) performed the unveiling. The plaque was produced with the help of the Shoreham Society.
