FONT STONE [Chapelton] Font Stone A. Blair 204.10 A little from the ruins on the N.E. [North East] side is a large common land stone having a small hole chiseled out about for 8 inches in diameter by 6 inches in depth. Respecting this stone, Mr Blair says that it is handed down by tradition, as being the font where children were wont to be baptised. From the name of the farm it would appear that a chapel had at some remote period been here, but no tradition exists in the locality respecting such farther than that in reference to the Font Stone.
