Cockle Creek Planter Beach
There is only one headstone at Planter beach and that being Pryat Samuel Thomas
Many Thanks to Mat Phipps for the following information
I was recently staying at Cockle Creek and found the gravestone at Planter Beach. I noticed on the gravestone that some of the letters are deteriorating. I found your website and found the relevant gravestone (Cockle Creek Planter Beach) which is listed under the first two names (Samuel Thomas). After some further 'googling' I found what seems to be the persons full name referenced in a book.
Symbolising the dangers of this violent profession is the nearby gravestone of Samuel Thomas Pryat. He died aboard the Alladin, off Southwest Cape, aged in his 20s, a possible shipmate of the ill-fated Aboriginal man William Lanney.
