Although it is believed that a chapel formerly stood here, yet at present no authentic or satisfactory information can be obtained of it from any of the old inhabitants of this district, either as regards the date of erection, by whom it was founded, or what time it fell into disuse, it must be supposed to be in common, and coeval with others of the same description, whose history is better known, even the site of it is uncertain. A ruin is remembered to have been here, but whether it has been the Chapel, or any other building, Cannot be strictly stated, but it is generally supposed that the Chapel stood hereabouts.
