Chapel Graveyard
Chapel Graveyard
Chapel Graveyard
Mr. William Warrack, Newmill, Fintray
Mr. Robert Milne, Teacher Fintray
Mr. Cumming, Merchant Fintray
Mr. Robert Gordon, Shoemaker Fintray
065 A small burying-ground in Hatton of Fintray, on the south side of the road near Haughland. It was consecrated by Bishop Elphinstone in the fifteenth century. Mr. Gordon supposes from the name, that a chapel stood here; Mr. Cumming is of a different opinion because the foundation of no building has ever been touched upon when digging graves. Where the Chapel stood which gave the graveyard its name is unknown.
Supposed Site of ST GILES'S CHAPEL Supposed Site of St Giles's Chapel
Supposed Site of St Giles's Chapel
Mr. Cumming, Merchant Fintray
Mr. Robert Gordon, Shoemaker Fintray
065 "Fintray hath for its tutelar St. Giles."
Chappel - *"St. Giles in Hatton, where the Abbot of Lindoris had formerly a Summer Seat." (Collections on the Shires of Aberdeen & Banff P [Page] 245)
*It is evident from the above quotation that a chapel existed hereabouts dedicated to St Giles, and the name "Chapel Graveyard" would lead to the supposition that this chapel stood in this spot. I consider therefore that it may be safely written on Plan, as "Supposed site of St. Giles's Chapel." [Signed] E.H. Courtney Capt.R.E. [Captain Royal Engineers]
