Pictured below is the beautiful parish church of St. Dubricius, Symonds Yat, where, following his visit to Whitchurch Primary School, a service was held in 2004 by the Rt. Revd. Anthony Priddis, Bishop of Hereford to rededicate the grave enclosure of the Gwillim family. The Gwillims owned the Old Court, Whitchurch from 1600 to 1868 and were benefactors of St. Dubricius Church. The tomb was built by Thomas Gwillim whose only grandchild, Elizabeth Posthuma Gwillim married John G. Simcoe, who is little known in England but actually became the first Governor of Upper Canada and founder of Toronto.
