5/57 Group of 3 chest tombs
4 metres north of south
wall of Quaver burial
3 chest tombs. Early - mid C18. For the Watkinson family. Gritstone.
Each is composed of a single moulded slab resting on a plinth of 4 or more
blocks. The central slab has the remains of a deeply cut inscription: "HERE
LIETH THE BO / DY OF GEORGE WAT / KINSON OF SCOT / TON SON OF WILL..." the
remainder illegible. The group over grown and tilted by a large tree
growing between them at time of resurvey. George Watkinson took over
Scotton Hall (qv) in 1653 and in 1658 he bought the Chantry House and lands.
William Watkinson (? George's son) conveyed lands for the burial ground to
the Quakers' Trustees in 1670. In 1928 the grave stones of William and Ann
were recorded in the graveyard, the latter being the southernmost of this
group, Ann being commemorated with 1 or 2 children. The group has
considerable historical significance in the history of Scotton. Included
for group value. A T Waterer, 'Records of the Parish of Farnham etc',
