Directions to Williams' Town Loyalist Tomb
Williams' Town Loyalist Tomb are solemn monuments; one of the remaining hstorical artifacts of the Loyalist era in the Bahamas, a time when American colonists, not wishing to be associated with ideals of the American Revolution, showed their loyalty to the British Crown by leaving the country and migratng to the islands of the Bahamas.
The four tombs in William's Town bear the name of three members of loyalist families. They include, George Butler (1759 - 1822), Henderson Ferguson (1772 - 1825), and Constance McDonald (1755 - 1759). The fourth, which is unmarked, is believed to be that of an unnamed African, enslaved at the time.
As the last remaining examples of loyalist tombs that were once very common on Exuma, there's a rich heritage to be told which the local guides will be happy to show you around and direct you to other points of interest on the island.
