Charles Armitage Brown, the closest friend of the poet Keats
In 1921, W H Skinner, noted New Plymouth historian, rediscovered the grave of Charles Armitage Brown.
This essay written by Skinner, gives back ground information on Charles Armitage Brown and his friendship with the poet Keats.
Charles Armitage died in 1842 and was buried on Marsland Hill, at that time designated as a public cemetery. In 1855, the grave was covered as Imperial troops excavated Marsland Hill, levelling the top to built military barracks.
