Graves of Robert Morrison and His Family

  The Protestant Cemetery of Macao was originally the cemetery of the British East India Company. Robert Morrison arrived to Macao in 1807 and his wife died of illness in 1821. Being a staff of the East India Company, Robert Morrison asked the Company to talk with the local Portuguese administration about turning the Company’s cemetery into one for the Protestants. Hence, the Protestant Cemetery of Macao came to exist in the early 19th century. The remains of Robert Morrison, his wife and son were buried together in this cemetery behind the Protestant Chapel, which is known as the Morrison Chapel.
