Sat 1 Apr 17 - A good reason to ring:

400th anniversary of burial of Pocahontas.

The most notable person to have come from Willoughby is John Smith, one of the leaders of the Virginia Colony in North America. He was born and raised in the village, and christened at St Helena's church in 1580. When Smith was 16 his father George Smith was buried at the same church on 3 April 1596. Smith was connected to the Native American girl Pocahontas, daughter of the chief of the Powhatan confederacy tribes. Smith met her when settling Jamestown in the 17th century. The cottage where Smith lived still exists and is situated in one of the village lanes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willoughby
