There aren’t many companies whose employees pass the burial site of the founder but Cavalier Boatworks is one such company. The plaque by the headstone tells the story.

I am a descendant of John Cavileer, and also grateful that his resting place has been preserved for 280 years. Amazing!

I’m a descendant of Yoos Sooy and very grateful that this burial site was maintained when it could easily have been lost over time. Kudos to Jersey Cape Yachts for continuing to preserve our heritage!
