This name applies to the site of Cross, situated about 3 Chains East of the present farm house of Ingrie, On this spot (prior to the present farm house) stood the old farm steading of Ingrie. A short distance South of this in a stone fence on the roadside," is a large stone about 2½ feet square. there is a hollow in the top of it supposed to have been used for holding water for baptism. Mr Lowe told me that Leslie Markets were formerly held in a field adjoining this stone, and he thinks that the hollow in it, had probably been the socket in which the Cross had been fixed."
