Of all the notables resting in our nearby churchyard, one stands out above the others.
Sake (Sheikh) Dean Mahomed (a.k.a. Dr Brighton) was an Anglo-Indian surgeon and entrepreneur. He was one of the most famous early non-European immigrants to the western world, and was responsible for introducing the west to Indian cuisine, at The Hindoostane Coffee House which he opened in 1810 at 34 George St W1; a road in which I actually lived for a while.
He also introduced England to steam baths and massage (Mahomed's Baths) at his establishment on Brighton's seafront.
Mahomed was born in 1759 in Patna India, and died in Brighton in 1851.
There are several pictures of Mahomed, but I particularly like this very primitive attempt (below), which refers to him as an 'East Indian'.
His gravestone is in a fenced area of the churchyard, otherwise I would have taken a photo.
Most of the information above comes from Wiki, and if you should wish to know more about him it's all there.
