Here lies David Brisbane of Bullion, Esquire, Writer in Dundee, son to Mr John Brisbane, Advocate, by his fathers' side of the Brisbane, and by his mother's side of the Wedderburn family.
The useful, grave, and social virtues which adorned his character, made him greatly valued in life, and much regretted at Death. He dyed a Bachelor, January 15th 1732. His only surviving sister and heir, Margaret, in testimony of her affection caused this monument to be erected.
