A Mural Tablet to him and his two wives is on the South Wall of the South Aisle in the Town Church.

Peter appears to have settled in England and to have become a Barrister, and later to have lived at Tauton, Somerset.

While on a visit to Herm, he found in the sand on the shore, a massive gold signet ring, which was identified as having belonged to Pierre De Beauvoir, Bailiff of Guernsey, 1480-90. He had used this to counter-seal official deeds up to 1485, when the use of it appears to have ceased. It was probably at this time Pierre De Beauvoir lost it at Herm. It is now one of the cherished possessions of the Royal Court, having been presented to it by Peter Martin's son, Sir Peter Stafford Carey.
