Captain John Trattles
For further information read “A Statue to Mr Trattles” by C.L.Boltz
“Mr Trattles was a ‘modest, perplexed, brown-eyed sailor of thirty-one"
were mainland Quakers. The Trattles were a well known and long established Island family.
It is generally assumed that nearly a hundred and fifty years earlier it was the young
daughter of a Trattle who presented Charles I with a rose as he rode through Newport to
sign the Treaty of Newport. The incident was preserved in a painting by a French artist
some years later.
