- tombs approximately 14 metres
south of aisle of the
Church of St Mary
2 adjacent chest tombs, one dated 1793 in memory of John Brown, the other dated 1797

coursed blocks of volcanic stone rubble. The 2 adjacent chest tombs are very

southern chest tomb is the earlier of the 2. Its lid is inscribed in Roman serif

There is also a Hamstone plaque in the west end of this tomb in memory of John
Brown's sons. The northern tomb lid is inscribed in italic lettering and the
inscription records the death of Margaret Brown in 1797.
