Captain James Lang

Captain James Lang, a renowned steamship skipper who gave his name to the pub The Captain James Lang in the High Street, is buried in the churchyard at Riverside. The gravestone is a little worn now, but a modern plaque next to it preserves the inscription. The full text on the original stone reads:

“Agnes Lang, in memory of her husband, Captain James Lang, who died 15th June 1850, aged 45 years; also their daughter Marion Houston, who died 22nd January 1842 aged 2 years and 3 months.”
