I saw this headstone in the graveyard at St Mary’s Church, Ballaugh, Isle of Man last year.

Evans Headstone

I have wondered, but been unable to find the answer, as to what heroic action, by Captain Evans, the inscription refers to. Is there a reader who is aware of this incident and can relate the circumstances, please?
