MR L F EVEREST DEAD : PEAK NAMED AFTER FATHER

Mr LANCELOT FIELDING EVEREST, eldest son and last lineal decendant

GEORGE EVEREST died in 1866. Sir George entered the service
of the East India Company and as a cadet of 16 sailed for India,

In the course of long and very arduous surveys he measured the
height of 'JOMO KANG-KAH' (Our Lady of the Snows) but he did not
