Inscription. Nearby, in the garden of Lansdowne, was buried Arthur Lee, 1740-1792, the youngest son of Thomas Lee of Stratford. Early in 1776 he secretly obtained the original grant of French military supplies for the Continental Army, which made possible the victory at Saratoga and the independence of the United States. In 1778 he signed the Treaty of Alliance with France. He retired to Lansdowne in 1791.
