Unmarked grave on Dartmoor
Near Peter Tavy Moor, marked by a granite post, is the grave of poor farm labourer George Stephens (d. 1763), who is said to have committed suicide after losing the prospect of marriage to Mary Bray, a farmer's daughter.
He was said to have been so in love with his fiancé he would pace outside her home every night, only to find that a week before they were due to marry she was cheating with his best friend.
He killed her and later himself with a poisoned apple, and was buried under the unmarked post which is still visible on Dartmoor.
