Inscription AC Lamb/ Thomson

On the North side of the gate, Andrew Mureson and Margaret Ramsay his wife, 1629.


"Stay trav`ler, notice who entomb`d heir lyes-

On that was verteous, Chest, and very wyse,

Good to the poor, still liv`d a godly lyfe.

Both first and last, since she becam a wyfe.

To quarell death for hir Chang uer but vain,

For death spares nather godly nor prophane ;

To say she`s changed, tuar but a foolish storie,

If not to live eternalie in Glorie."

Margaret Ramsay, spouse to Andrew Mareson, departed 26 May 1666. Her age

Stay trav'ller; notice, who entomb'd here lyes,
One that was virt'ous, chaste, and very wise;
Good to the poor; still liv'd a godly life,
Both first and last, since she became a wife.
To quarrel death, for her change, were but vain,
For death spares neither godly nor profane ;
To say she's chang'd were but a foolish story,
If not to live eternally in glory.

Claimant: James Scott, Commercial Bank a relative of the Mureson family
